"Inspired by the birth of my son, I set aside my commercial work for something that was more personal and close to my heart. I began silk screening designs that captured what I thought to be more imaginative, silly and unpretentious—all the things that I wanted my son to grow to be. Maintaining the quality and skill of my work is very important to me and I strive to always do this while still concentrating on portraying the simple pleasures of the world around.

Now with 2 more kids, and six years later... I still want the same things. Now I just silk
screen when everyone goes to sleep." — Elaine Melko, Creator, So Silly
