From Goatman to Goatee, beards of Fort Worth:
The Lake Worth Monster is a legend that began decades ago, back in the 60s in the areas surrounding Lake Worth in the cities of Lake Worth and Fort Worth, Texas. His appearance has sparked many local legends and there are many accounts of run-ins that people have had with this fascinating character. From kicked cars to surprising car jumping and an in-person stand off that included thrown tires, there are many who believe and many more who want to believe that Goatman was and possibly still is lurking around the shores and wild areas surrounding the lake.
These legends have inspired us to create the “Fort Worth Goatmen” shirt. Why goatmen you ask, because there is a wildness, rebellion or maybe a resistance to comform to the clean cut stereotype that many would try to impose. Beards can say and mean a lot of different things but they do say something. What does your beard say?

What is Eylan Arts, what does it mean, and how do you say it? Early in 2008, Baron and Morgan Smith, were working on art projects here and there for friends, family, and the occasional friend-of-a-friend. Seeing the opportunity to own our own business, we decided to start Eylan Arts. We went back and forth about names and meanings, like you do when you’re naming your first child, or maybe every child, because that is how we saw our business. We wanted to have just the right name that was easy to remember and meaningful in it’s roots, and so Eylan Arts was born. Using the Hebrew word for sacred tree, “Eylan” we hoped to establish and convey our love for nature and especially our love for trees. Pronounced “E-lawn,” we’ve had some confusion and many questions about it’s meaning and we’re happy to tell the story and explain how important and beautiful the outdoors and nature is to us.
