DG Strong

Fulfillment, Modern Daily Knitting · Nashville, Tennessee

DG Strong is a former graphic designer who gave it all up after being asked by a client to design a logo that featured a house, a dragon and a profile of the client’s daughter. He lives in Nashville with his sister, her rat terrier and a hound dog named Opal. He has a blog of drawings and faintly ridiculous rambling called The Psychopedia; it’s been dormant for a while, but there are worse ways to spend your afternoon.
