Thad Markham (American) is an artist/designer and California native, born and raised in the mountains of Southern California.

Years of hard work and long hours later, his business wasa roaring success and Thad's ever-active mind sought new challenges. Read More

It all started with the bananas…

One bright sunny morning he was sitting at breakfast and his glance fell on a bunch of bananas on the table. "That's funny," he said to himself, "it almost looks like they're dancing." Thus began his preoccupation with the secret lives of fruits and vegetables. He began hunting the produce department of the grocery store, his mind captivated with a single burning question...
