Nogginwear Designs & Creates Hats for Cartoonist, Illustrator and Childrens Book Author Don Mathias
Nogginwear legacy continues to grow with creating hats for local cartoonist…
Don a mild-mannered art teacher by day and a book writer, cartoonist and illustrator by night created Peanizles in July 2009 and now has 3 paperback books published that are collections of his "the almost daily strip" and a new recently released and published children's storybook "The Day the World Lost Its Color". Mr. Mathias has also had his comic strips featured in world renown multiple award-winning comic book creator, writer and artist Stan Sakai book, The Sakai Project published by Dark Horse Comics and in a tribute book to Richard Thompson's comic Cul De Sac. Don grew up and still resides in Andover, MA he has had a passion for drawing comics his entire life starting his first newspaper comic in 1998 running in the Andover Townsman for more than ten years. "I met with Scott knowing Nogginwear hats are amazing owning several of their hats myself and wanting to create really cool hats but had no idea what I wanted to do" says Don. Mr. Mathias goes on to say, "Scott didn't tell me what he was going to do so when I received his design for my hats I couldn't believe he captured the essence of my characters in a hat- exactly what I wanted, I was ecstatic"
Nogginwear is totally different not just designing and manufacturing a different premium retail quality hat for their hat subscription business but using their experience to work with all different kinds of artist to capture the essence of the artist work and marry it up with a great hat design. "Working with Don on this project has been very rewarding, having him open to our ideas and letting us create a hat based on his work has been amazing" says Scott Weldon, CEO of Nogginwear. "We love to make hats and working with people like Don even furthers our passion for creativity".
