Atomik Cupcake: A New Brand That’s Positively Explosive with Ambition
Denver, CO, USA — Tracy Campbell was coasting through a slow, boring day behind the front desk during her apprenticeship to become a tattoo artist when a song by Supertramp came on the radio. “Ohhhh, the calamity…is there no way out?”
That’s what the lyrics really are, but that’s not what she thought the song “Take the Long Way Home” said. She thought he said “Oh, the humanity” (that’s close, right?), and found herself picturing a creature that was part human, and part manatee—a humanatee! The idea lingered in her head for a whole five years, and after her mom insistently reminded her to draw what a humanatee might look like, she finally put pen to paper and drew what would become her first t-shirt design.
Now, Atomik Cupcake Designs is taking to Etsy so that Tracy’s dreams of getting her creations out there to the world can become a reality. Right now, the online store focuses on selling prints of her traditionally rendered art, with a more primary focus on the sale of t-shirt designs. Because the store has only been in operation since the beginning of February 2015, the inventory is small; however, she works independently every day to increase the selection of her products, making sure they’re always fun, unique, and made with 100% effort. “Art is a universal language, after all,” the Denver artist says, “and so much can be shared through it, even through what may seem like just a simple t-shirt design. My hope is that people out there like my creations as much as I do!”
