Mantis Design = Gerald Kielpinski and Brian Gleisberg, two friends who grew up shooting at each other with BB Guns, then later on in life, started this company.
Here we’d like to thank all of the friends and associates that help Mantis Design exist the way you see it. First we’d like to thank the “old school” friends that helped us out when we just getting this thing together. Jim Dennis, Shawn Finney, PJ Macintosh and Mark Kielpinski all helped us pull all nighters rolling posters, licking stamps, and drinking a few Yuengling Lagers along the way.
Then we have some writers we’d like to thank: Julie Luongo, Nina Catalano, and Rob Miller. Three of the funniest people we’ve known, they’ve patiently changed our diapers and taught us to walk with the written word.
We also want to give a great big thanks to all the unique and wonderful artists and creative people out there that jumped on board this ship along the way.
But the most important group out there are the fans, or anyone whoever bought a “Mantis” poster. Especially the people who sent in “have a day” ideas, or anything that made us laugh. If you wanna take a peak at some of the best letters we’ve recieved, check out the Mantis Design Great Big Hall O’ Fame.
