Is that Rack Real??!

We had a new Deer design come out this Fall that we named the Big Rack Deer. Did u ever wonder if these designs are "real" or just based off photographs in magazines
or from Goggle???We do have a ton of Deer hunting mags laying around the house that would be easy to copy, but.... We try hard to keep everything authentic and have a story behind it.
So, back to the deer design... It should of been named The-One-That-Got-Away!! Brent hunted that deer all last year. This big horned deer started popping up on his camera here and there and Brent became a man on a mission!!! He wanted that Buck, and that Buck only. For those of you hunting widows out there, I'm sure u know how the feaver/frenzy takes over your man and all he can think about is this one animal. Man vs Animal....well, to make a long story short, it really became Man vs Man and Brent's buddy Josh Rogers won. Yep- the buck showed up around Josh's stand one day, and Josh got em. Voila~
Brent was happy for his hunting club buddy and long time friend, BUT, he was a little heart broken too. We decided to make Josh's trophy buck this year's Deer design. I was able to base the drawing off of the mount.
Josh is married to pretty Ashley Storm Rogers who is very creative ( she does photography) and they have a son named Tripp who Mr P adores!!!
 Local Deer, Local Family, etc etc. . So, yes- our designs are "real"!!
Here is a pic of local Beauty Julianne Tippen who modeled our Deer Camo Baseball tee in a photo shoot for BayouLife Magazine.
We sold out of these baseball tees at Christmas, but have one more batch of 24 of them coming in by Jan 15th. They are S-XL and $36. We will post as soon as they are back in stock. 
   I'm happy to say that Brent was able to get the big one he wanted THIS season. Thank U God!!! It came right at Christmas and this 10 pt was the best present ever for him.
Stay tuned to see if this one will end up on a shirt next year ;)

On a side note~ our limited edition Mardi Gras shirts will be out soon. We have them coming out in two different adult colors  (in sizes S-XXL) and one kids color (2t-youth 12). All of them will be long sleeves. We will post as soon as they are available!!

Thanks for reading!!!

Winter Art Retreat and all about the Dachshund

A month or so ago, I got to get away for a long weekend to Vicksburg. I love that place! This is my second time to go over there to create art. It's the perfect distance from home. Not too far in case the kids need me and just right down I-20. This time around, I stayed at Cedar Grove Inn.  ( It had good reviews on Trip Advisor and I remember seeing it last time and thinking it was gorgeous.
Here are a few pics around the main mansion.

I stayed in the old pool house room.
It didn't have the best lighting, but the bed was comfy
                                                           and the claw tub was cool
I got to eat at my favorite place~ Walnut Hills~
                                                        for dinner on Friday night.


                                                             (a sample of their menu)

I can't get enough gravy!!!!

And I got to eat The Tomato Place for lunch
They have the best fresh squeezed lemonade.

I did go for a nice run in the Vicksburg National Park Saturday morning, but for the most part, I  pretty much stayed in the bed with all my pencils and extra fine tip sharpies and worked worked worked. We had a few custom designs I worked on such as the Riverfield Raider.
This was created specially for my ole sorority sister Lillian Greer. It is at the printer now.

 And got a cool vintage style design for Equinox Jazz Orchestra  

 Like my hubs says "these guys are good, respectable good" which is a huge compliment coming from Brent. They will be selling this shirt on their tour all over the nation.. Here is how the shirt turned out..
 I was so pumped to get to do this for Clay Johnson and Jeremy Davis. Their band "Howard Shaft" was my fav back in my college days. "it's a Bird, It's a plane, It's Howard Shaft!!!" So proud of these guys and all they have and are accomplishing!!

  I also worked on a new Mardi Gras design to come out soon.........

 And, I got to draw the now famous Dachshund design.
Never knew weenie dogs were so popular!! This idea started about 9 weeks ago with a comment from Katie McGowan on IG that we should do a weenie dog design.
This was the actual conversation....

Then, fast forward to another Katie (Summerall) who has Beaux and Molly's in Natchitoches. She requested a Dachshund design too. She said her store was becoming known for having Dachshund items.  So, I drew the little guy out and sent the pic to Katie S. in Natchitoches. She loved it. And then, a week later, I showed Katie M.  the drawing at Cedartown.  She was so excited about  it which made me feel good. ;). So, that is how he came to be!! Here is Katie M with her two little babies, Allie and Maggie.
 and then here is Katie S with her late twin sisters dog, Denton, that she inherited.
Know this dog means the world to her! Here he is riding around in her car.
 We have one more batch of these sweatshirts and baseball tees coming in right before Christmas.
My kiddos had on the youth versions this past weekend at Kiroli Park. 

Here is Pearson in a 4t and Phoebe in a 2t. Love the neon blue sleeves. :)

Speaking of dogs, is there a breed u wish we would do???

We appreciate all the support and hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas. As always, thanks for reading! To order online, go to
