Who: Rick Weetman
Where: Atlanta, GA
What: Pun-worthy illustrations and shirts.
Why: Rick has been an artist since he was a child; drawing with his friends and dreaming of being a comic book artist. He put art on the back burner to pursue other careers, and it wasn’t until Rick was 30 that a friend enticed him to sell his art. For Rick’s business name, he chose “WEMCO Arts” after a business his father had owned in the 70s. It was Rick’s father and grandfather who had instilled into Rick a deep love of all things artistic.
The subjects explored by WEMCO arts are drawn from Rick’s fondness of history, literature, comedy, and the English language.
When: Selling in HomeGrown since 2015.
