Creative Spotlight: David Olenick
After a 15-year career as a designer/art director developing t-shirts for top names in the fashion industry, a few years ago David struck out on his own. His unique approach to the integration of humor, art, design & fashion led to breakout success selling his own T-shirt creations online.
As David says, “My art is inspired by anxiety, embarrassment, and profanity. I come up with ideas in Mexican restaurants, where I drink until I’m funny. I enjoy art museums, avoiding carbs, and going around telling people that simple designs are actually the hardest kind to create.” Instantly recognizable, his cute, edgy, relatable personifications of objects & animals are perfect for licensing in almost every product category.
