We had the pleasure of designing the cover and interior illustrations for Andra Watkins’ new book To Live Forever. The book follows Meriwether Lewis and his nine-year-old companion Emmaline Cagney as they travel the historic Natchez Trace from New Orleans to Nashville. It’s an incredibly entertaining story and we highly recommend picking up a copy. You can download the Kindle edition or pick up a paperback here.
Andra was an incredible inspiration throughout the process. She and Helen talk more about what it was like to work together in this interview. You can keep up with Andra as she walks the 444-mile Natchez Trace, just as the pioneers did in the 1820′s. She’s there now, walking fifteen miles a day, six days a week!
Chauncey, Chauncey, Chauncey and everyone else here at Fuzzco wish you a loverly day.
Fuzzco has recently adopted several moon jellyfish from Jellyfish Art and golly they are bonkers. They bring tremendous joy to our lives and can do the same for you. Want to know more about these delights of the deep? Maybe buy this poster.
We made not one but two versions of this handsome design for you – one with care instructions (for those that need to learn) and one without (for those that just want to appreciate the glory).
Send us a message if you are interested in purchasing a poster. Each poster is 18″ x 24″ – $30 + S&H. Once we have enough orders they will be screen printed by our charming and talented friends at Mama’s Sauce.

Fuzzco welcomes some wonderful new people.
Ben Jacobs /
When you meet this guy you might take note of how equine he seems in form and grace. You’re not crazy, Ben is one of the few fully-grown and fully-employed human beings raised entirely by horses. To this day he speaks fluent horse and spends much of his time with his four-legged pals, neighing and bucking and pawing the soil. His knowledge of the equine arts doesn’t relate directly to his daily duties here at Fuzzco, but it sure doesn’t hurt.
Bryan Couchman /
Bryan’s been growing and we don’t know what to do about it. He started out pretty big to begin with, with a big bushy beard, and just kept going, not outward but up. It was cool and interesting and funny when we first noticed but now it doesn’t seem like it’s going to end. Today his head brushes our highest ceilings and he has to sit down on the floor in front of his desk to work at his computer. No one wants to give him a hug because he can’t help but hurt us. Soon he won’t be able to fit in the building. Sorry Bryan.
Cory Etzkorn /
Cory can most often be found in a cave. Large ones, small ones, dripping or dry, he loves them all. He yearns for the inky hollows and the depthless caverns, crawling as close to the earth’s core as he can to sit and stare and sometimes sing softly to himself in the dark. Why Cory, why would you rather be down in a cave than out in the greater world? “I don’t know why,” he says, “do I have to know why?” No Cory, you don’t.
Just kidding. Read the real bios and peep their faces here.
This June 11-14, Charleston will be graced with the minds of at least 75 more geniuses, all on the bill to address us at the Giant Conference, a Conference for People Who Create Rad Experiences.
When we first heard of the conference and its aspirations for a huge line-up of web/app/front-end/back-end/UX/UI/other designers, developers, researchers, specialists, managers, entrepreneurs, illustrators, CEOs, coaches and architects, we were eager to join the party and get our hands dirty. And when we were asked to put a logo system together for Giant and its subsidiaries, we jumped at the chance.
Check out what we’ve done, and see how it’s been put to work.
