the bug story
Bugged Out is a line of hand printed whimsical bug, fruit, veggie and critter designs available on clothing for little ones, tote bags and accessories based in New York City.
We started in 2007 with our bug line, which had its origin in MS Walk team T-shirts. One of our first bug customers, the “Shop in the Garden” of the New York Botanical Garden, commissioned Dina, the creator of Bugged Out, to design kid-friendly fruits and veggies for an exclusive line of cards, totes and T-shirts, featured during their season-long "Edible Garden Festivals" in 2009 and 2010. Now this collection is also available at Bugged Out! Among Dina's other exclusive Bugged Out designs are the “elf on a train” T-shirt for NYBG's Annual Holiday Train Show and a series of Pinocchio scenes to accompany an exhibition of Jim Dine's Pinocchio sculptures and illustrations at The Nassau County Museum of Art in 2012!
