Sketch'z was formed in 1987 by a graduate of The Art Institute of Philadelphia. He was trying to find his way in the "Land of Opportunity". He was working at a major brand name mfg. plant with 24/7 shifts at the time. Many of his co-workers in labor knew of his artistic skills and tagged him with the "nick name" Sketch. Everybody get's a NICK NAME!!
It all started with setting up a T-shirt airbrushing booth at a local outdoor hunting trade show under the trade name Sketch's Wearable Art. As small business owners would come up to the booth and ask to have multiple shirts airbrushed with "WAY" too much text, etc. he would direct them to buying printed T'z from a local T-shirt printer. Finally, one customer said, "But I want you to print my shirts. If you had the right equipment, do you think you could screen print my order for me?" He said "yeah, sure, I'll give it a try".
So, with the slogan, "If It's Art...It's Wearable™" we were off and squeegeeing! So there ya go, it all started something like that.
In The Beginning
A few years later
A few more Years 2016
We were greatly saddened by the attack on our country September 11, 2001 I/we fully supported our President, leaders, military and those in support behind the scenes. We grieve for all those who lost loved ones and friends in the attack. We pray you find comfort and hope in your time of sorrow. I am one who also believes this is only the beginning of the global change this will cause in the next decade.
When I found we did not have a flag to wave at the time of the attack to show our support and patriotism. I went to find one to buy like millions of other Americans and found NONE. I wanted to show our support and patriotism very much, especially when being raised in the military.
When I remembered that I am an artist and my good friend Page also. I said to Page "Hey, let's just paint a flag in the windows!" Needless to say we were very excited to design and airbrush it as quickly as possible. We think it turned out great! So did a lot of the surrounding community. We thank you for the notes, all the comments and honks from your car horns as you passed by while we were painting it. God bless.
I would like to thank my good friend Page Herbert for wanting to design and paint the flag in our windows. We painted another one for Angels Dance Studio in Colonial Heights, VA. I was only able to help a little.
My friend, Larry Wilson, owner of Wilson Graphics in Chester, Va 804-748-0646 asked us if we would do their windows also. So we did! How do you like them? Comments & Questions
