BIGMENTION tracks back to the ’90s. Working in a small print shop, learning my craft. It began as my way to anonymously distribute handmade, small-run limited edition publications, recordings, clothing, graphic design and art. Grounded in graffiti, many of the original publications (where anonymity is ideal), titled BIGMENTION were left in random locations or inserted into bookshelves at the big box stores as surprise gifts for strangers.
Who I am.
I’m Ian Stewart. I’m an artist and designer.
I’m a Kansan. I was born here, raised here and will more than likely die here.
I love Kansas. For better or for worse. It's molded me into who I am. I've lived other places and enjoyed stretching myself geographically, but Kansas is — and always will be — home.
But most important, I’m a husband, and I’m a father.
With my wife Sarah, an artist herself, we create together, inspire each other and push one another. My daughter, Harper, is gentle, bright and all kinds of beautiful. Not to mention one of the most hilarious humans I know. Together, the women in my life make me a better man.
