ABOUT

Arthur's Plaid Pants is the business name of illustrator Jen Husted-Goss.
I was born & raised right outside of Detroit, I graduated with a BFA from Eastern Michigan University. Shortly after graduating from EMU I  moved to Chicago for 8 awesome years. I co-owned & operated a design firm in Chicago for 4 years before branching out to focus on my illustration. 

Arthur's Plaid Pants started in 2010 and my Etsy shop was launched in 2011.
My business is named after my grandfather Art (Arthur) and the obnoxious plaid polyester golf pants he loved to wear. He was the most influential person in my life as a child. When I started my business I knew I wanted to incorporate him into it somehow.  Even though he's no longer with us, I know he'd get a kick out of my business name. 

  I returned back to The Great Lakes State in 2013 when my husband and I purchased a home in the wonderful city of Grand Rapids. We reside in a 100 year old home and in our spare time we're working to restore it. We share our home with 2 amazing rescued pit bulls, Rocky & Rilo.

I wake up everyday feeling fortunate that I'm able to spend my days doing what makes me happy. I can honestly say, I love what I do!

Everything in my shop is conceptualized, drawn, packaged and shipped by me.
My supplies such as paper & envelopes are sourced from local Michigan businesses. We are very much into supporting local, shopping local and focusing on our community.

My shop is constantly evolving and new items are always being added so check back often.
