Well another bucket list item crossed off, I finally have a product at Anthropology. Okay, okay, it’s probably not as cool as what you are thinking. No, I don’t have prints sold at Anthropologie, (not just yet anyway, but if you know any brand contacts, do let me know!)

I made it to the shelves of Anthropology on the shoulders of my friends at Schmutz Watches. So let’s backtrack and tell the story from the beginning.

Several years ago now, the owner and craftsman of Schmutz Watches, Lee, contacted me to do some art for his watch faces. His whole premise is really cool. He collaborates with artists from around the world to create custom, and unique watch faces. He himself creates the inner workings of the watches and places the faces onto the bodies. He has some truly spectacular pieces and I’m honored to be in his collection.

Lee has partnered with Anthropology now to sell his watches. Congratulations Lee, I know what a long process it has been for you, and thanks for taking me along on the ride!

And while I’m still hoping to land some prints or other goods in Anthropology all based on my own merit and negotiating ability, it sure is nice to know a very small, piece of me and my work has made it to their stores. How thankful I am for the opportunity.

See the watches here and don’t forget to check out Schmutz Watches and the beautiful craftsmanship behind each piece.
