He's Green, Hairy, and a Pretty Laid Back Dude

Have fun stopping by Minty Fresh Monster Apparel where you will find original screen printed graphic t-shirt designs from the minds of a creative duo Saman & Erica.
They are brought to you with love on 100% cotton, sweatshop free American Apparel tees. "We have organic and standard shirts for men, women and kids!"

"Hi! My name is Erica. My boyfriend Saman and I run Minty Fresh Monster Apparel. Saman designs our shirts, I run the business side of things, and the Minty Fresh Monster plays video games and reads comics while we work.

 Although we are both from Minneapolis, we now live a short drive from the city in the town of Northfield, MN. I'm there finishing my fine art degree at St. Olaf college, and Saman is completing a year apprenticeship with the school's art department. The following pictures are Saman's desk, one of our storage space, and one looking out the windows on Division Street in Northfield. Northfield is a small college town of 20,000. We live in a one-room apartment above a pet shop. It's kinda cute.

Saman draws all the time. Robots and monsters are definitely favorites, but he draws pretty much everything. We decide together which of these drawings will become vector art and then eventually make it on a t-shirt. He either uses Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator.

 Once the shirts are printed and ready to ship, they become my responsibility. Next year we hope to get a separate studio, but for now shirts are folded on the kitchen table and stored on shelves running down the wall of our apartment. It will be great to get some more space so we have room for a few more designs!"
