Artist Statement

"I chose Apollo 8 because it was the first human manned spacecraft to leave Earth's orbit. I stuck with the same incorporation of the figure-8 slingshot to illustrate the number '8' but gave it a bolder twist. This mission was an integral step in getting us closer to the moon than ever before and is a fascinating story with many key members who would go on to be a part of some of the most famous spaceflights in history." - Brian Folchetti

Originally from the Great North Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I graduated from Kutztown University in 2011 with Advertising and Web concentrations. Shortly after graduation I took up an apprenticeship at Reebok in Canton, MA working on apparel graphics. I now live in Jacksonville, FL at Fanatics designing Fanatics Branded apparel graphics. When I'm not making t-shirts look cool, I spend most of my time reading comics, road/mountain biking, and spending quality time with my wife and 3 amazing little dudes.
