With the introduction of improved fabric inks in the early 60's, the imprinted T-shirt industry thrived through the next five decades. However, the process of screen-printing was time consuming, cumbersome and somewhat messy. Welcome to the 21st century and digital printing! Now designs can be printed directly onto T-shirts, hoodies, totebags, and a variety of other items. It is this new technology that makes vibrant colors and intricate detail possible, leaving screen-printing in the last century!
Since their first collaboration back in 1997, this duo have worked together to design a wide variety of memorable products including coffee mugs, advertisements, plaques, and of course T-shirts. We are eager for you to look through our selection of designs and bookmark us, as we'll be adding much more!About our name...

David chose Hodge, the name of Samuel Johnson's cat. Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language, published in 1755, was the standard in the English speaking world for 150 years.
Keith, born and bred in Missouri, chose Huckleberry as a nod to Mark Twain. Twain's character Huckleberry Finn first appeared in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1876.About us...
Keith - (Artist) Keith has been a practicing cartoonist from a very early age. As an avid reader of comic books and humor magazines, some of his early artistic influences include the works of Charles Addams, Mort Drucker, Bill Mauldin, and Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, but draws upon his wife and family for much of his inspiration. He has designed, painted, screen-printed, airbrushed, tie-dyed, batiked and stenciled T-shirts for himself and others since 1975. T-shirts are a form of expression, they are truly an original American art form.
David - (Web Design, Photoshop) David has worked as a Web Designer since 1995 and has been a Photoshop user since it was ported to Windows in 1992. An avid reader, David has authored The Charles Dickens Page on the Web since 1997. This endeavor has afforded him the opportunity to work with movie and television studios, authors, publishers, major news outlets, museums, and colleges and universities around the world. When he's not reading, or plugged into his computer, he can be found enjoying other passions like baseball, playing guitar, and spending time with his family...and his three granddaughters!
