Illustrator & Designer
Writer & Designer
Thistle Design Co. is a wife and husband team who lives in the serene mountains of Kentucky. They began their journey creating Thistle after they graduated college and sought an avenue to showcase the art style and storytelling they loved.
Jessie is an illustrator and graphic designer inspired by Appalachia’s beauty. She uses digital illustration coupled with traditional techniques to create whimsical pieces. Micah is a writer and designer, always helping the team to come up with their next clever idea.
At the heart of their process is the desire to tell a good story. Storytelling runs through their veins and connects them to their Appalachian roots. Together they create illustrated stickers, art prints, postcards, tote bags, and hand-bound journals.

With almost 50 different designs from travel, nature, geek, and just plain cute, these vinyl die-cut stickers are always a huge hit and are made of high quality material.
Illustrated Sticker Sheets
These wonderful kiss-cut stickers are perfect for a journal, planner, or travel notebook. They are made of high-quality matte or clear paper.
Screen Printed Tote Bags
Deliciously illustrated, these tote bags are delightfully unique and pack a punch. Feeling magical? Pick up one of these totes!
Postcards & Art Prints
Illustrated designs inspired by the wonders of the Appalachia and growing up in Kentucky, these are amazing gifts to send to your loved ones or frame in your home or office.
We love a good notebook, especially one you can take with you. So, when that amazing idea strikes you can jot it down. These journals are hand-bound with a saddle stitch and the sturdy cover showcases fun seamless pattern illustrations.
Hand Painted Wood Slice Coasters
Who doesn’t need a coaster set? Practical and beautiful, these coasters are hand-painted and have a waterproof coating. Also, couple them with a tiny easel, and voila – a small art piece!
