I'm very excited our production shop will soon be coming together. Nothing fancy just my man cave turned in to a testing lab for some of my ideas. I think Heather ( my beautiful wife) is just trying to keep me from jacking with the biz side of things. Which is probably a good idea. We ordered some equipment to test out making some of our products. It should be an adventure. I will begin posting our progress soon.
So, here we are at the beginning. Mr Cochino is our shop. We sell t-shirts, hats, stickers, patches, and work shirts. I dig the Mexican old guy look- the hat, khakis, and button down shirt. I want to show the pride of the hard working clean and pressed Mexican American.
The Mr Cochino Logo:
It started out as a self portrait. I love the imagery of dia de los muertos. Plus the concept of our family members coming back to party is outstanding.
Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world.
We are the Mr Cochino brand. I wanted to do a blog to record our journey into the world of small branding. So, let me say I am an old guy who is married, with four outstanding little people who are almost all grown up. I'm a Combat Medic by trade. I have always drawn, but I don't think of myself as a professional artist. I have no formal training, but that doesn't mean I don't try. I plan to record our journey, show some images, and rant from time to time. Again, welcome.
