Take two book lovers, season them with graphic design careers and a strong desire to travel. Stir up these ingredients and you have Tag Team Tompkins, a mother/daughter team creating art that honors literary wit and wisdom.
We collaborate on mixed media projects such as our hand lettered and cut paper original work. We then translate our favorite pieces into letterpress art prints - printed by Bob Atkins, owner of Skylab Letterpress.
Our frequent travels to Japan let us find new tools and materials, and lend us surprising perspectives on our art. Those long plane trips ensure plenty of time to read and imagine new work.
We're very happy to be first-time participants at Ric Rac Roundup - seeing old friends and making new ones.
