George Vlosich began plying an unusual artistic trade at the age of 10 back in 1989 — pieces created on the classic children's toy, Etch A Sketch. Since then, his portraits of Charles Barkley and Michael Jackson and LeBron and dozens of others landed him spots on national TV and plenty of exposure. It was just the tip of the creative iceberg for him and his brother, Greg, who run GV Art & Design. They're the folks behind some of the most popular T-shirts in Cleveland — the Tribe "Goon Squad," the Cleveland weather forecast, the "Factory of Sadness," etc. — and above all, they're about the city, first and foremost. In fact, it's their motto: Wear Cleveland Proud. Better than that, they do Cleveland proud. Find their wares online or at their storefront in Lakewood.
