We’re Here for a Great 2021 Holiday Season

We could really use some holiday spirit right now. And by spirit we mean all the things: good vibes, alcoholic spirits, and yes, even some good ol’ ghosts of Christmas past/present/future (spoop).

We’re bringing the joy and hygge this season with soul-recharging art from our friend Ranee Henderson; holiday market festivities; and deals deals deals on all the fun handcrafted TITO products. See you soon!


November 20: Join us for Ranee Henderson’s “Fending for Ourselves”

About once per month we feature another artist at our space. Through our TX2 Gallery, we showcase up-and-coming artists whose work conveys important messages for society. We also host events and workshops to educate and encourage people to make positive social impact.

Our first TX2 Gallery show with Mika Yokota in October was incredibly well-received, and so fun! Check out photos here.

For our upcoming TX2 Gallery show, we are delighted to present artist Ranee Henderson. Ranee tells compelling stories with her beautiful oil paintings, which contain rich textures that you simply MUST experience in person. “Fending for Ourselves” is about her experiences growing up with her sister in Nebraska, when they essentially raised each other. They survived off very unpalatable powdered milk provided by the government.

Ranee is an award-winning multi-disciplinary artist who has been featured at numerous exhibitions around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Canada. Her work has been featured on the cover of American Illustration, and has been included in The New Yorker, the LA Review of Books, and New American Paintings.

RECEPTION: Saturday, November 20, 4p-8p. Come see us and meet this amazing artist!

EXHIBITION: Art is available for viewing Friday, November 19 through Sunday, November 21, 12-8p each day


On Saturday, December 11, we are hosting local makers and designers at our space for a holiday market of handcrafted goods! It’s unique handmade goods and art from a variety of local designers in a festive holiday setting. Get one-of-a-kind last-minute holiday gifts.

We will have holiday-themed snacks and drinks, caroling and other fun activities. What else could you want?

Thank you for helping to make the Grand Opening of TITO Art & Design so special! Over 150 people joined our festivities, and we saw old friends, new friends, and met some great people.

We had so much fun that we didn’t even take any good photos, so if you have any, please send to us! We did get a short video shot by our good friend, Andres. Check it out!

But wait… there’s more. It’s another grand opening! We would like to introduce a brand new art gallery run by us (Tristan and Tito), called TX2 Gallery. We aim to provide a space to showcase up-and-coming artists, and host events that promote social impact.

For our first event, we are so proud to show the breathtaking art of one of our oldest friends, Mika Yokota. Come see her and her art at our space on Saturday, October 9! RSVP: We will need to limit the number of guests, so please RSVP to secure your spot.

Building a Community of Forward-Thinking People

We’ve met so many fantastic (and some fantastically weird) people at the Melrose Trading Post these past few months!

As I mentioned in my last message to you, my frustrations in trying to break in to the corporate world led me to start TITO Art & Design. Although my aesthetic is apparently a bit too odd for the mainstream, I thought perhaps I would find a few of my people at MTP. As it turns out, there are a lot of us!

Shout out to our new friend and incredible illustrator, Marianna Fierro, who sent us this photo of her new TITO Blob table in her apartment.

Knowing that there is this community of forward-thinking people drives us to keep creating and sharing our creations with you.

This is why we are in the process of finding our own space, so we can bring everyone together and celebrate the joys of art and design. As an early supporter of TITO Art & Design, you will get a VIP spot at our events. Stay tuned for an announcement on that!

Get your friends on the VIP list and you will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE blob side table. If you get at least 2 friends to sign up for our mailing list (make sure they put your name in “How Did You Find Us?”), you could win! The winner will be announced at our first launch event.

One last thing: we are pleased to be able to offer 0% interest for 6 months on purchases made through Paypal! Just use the “Pay Later” option when you check out on the TITO website.
Much more to come.

What an Amazing First Month!

Hello! Thank you for being among our very first supporters. You are with us at the beginning of what is shaping up to be an incredible journey.

I started TITO Art & Design after realizing I did not fit in with the corporate world that design school pushed me towards. I just wanted to make stuff that was fun, minimal with a touch of high design, a little weird and alien, but also practical and functional.

But could I really start my own business around this concept? After some nudging and pep talks from my husband Tristan, I decided to try selling at the Melrose Trading Post.

This first month has been amazing. I was surprised how well people responded to my work! It has been so great to meet everyone, and to be able to share my wacky and wonderful world with you all.

Through our newsletter, we will offer design tips, fun memes, new art and products, VIP access to events, and of course, discounts and giveaways! You can sign up here!

I look forward to getting to know you better and collaborating with you to create a more fun, beautiful, and loving world.
