I know that you guys probably came for the cupcakes. But if you enjoy my sweet and whimsical art, you may be amused to learn that I in addition to being an A+ source for baking info, recipes, and cupcake and unicorn related artwork, I also work part time doing illustrations for a very cool mattress company.
Verlo Mattress is based in Milwaukee, WI, but has stores throughout the US. I am an illustrator for their blog.
One of the cool things about them? Every Verlo mattress is made in their local factories and sold exclusively in their showrooms. According to the Verlo site, "All our mattresses are adjustable, and made to address different sleep needs. We back each mattress with an industry-leading Lifetime Comfort Guarantee."
While "mattress factory" might not scream "incredible fun!" to you, they have a pretty darned incredible blog that IS worth your time. What I do for them is provide illustrations for their blog posts, which offer interesting and informative stories on all sorts of sleep-related subjects.
Oh, and further proof that they are great? Also according to their site, "And by the way, in addition to making mattresses, we’re great at stacking them. In 2014, Verlo became the proud Guinness World Record Holder for the Tallest Stack of Mattresses."
