Happy Dogs.

I used to think I work to support my lifestyle. In reality, I work to keep my dogs full of biscuits.


We think we've accumulated over 60 awards for our work, but since we usually bury them in the yard, we can't be sure.


I am Spartacus SIGMA!

I’m Steve Merryman. I am a graphic designer, illustrator, patent-holder, hot sauce lover, smart-aleck, and amateur stand-up comedian. Over the course of my life, I’ve been willing to try just about anything, with the notable exception of singing in public (for which I feel the public owes me a large measure of gratitude).

My design and illustration work has won over sixty awards at both regional and national levels.

For the last 21 years, I’ve been running SIGMA with my wife, Faith. I spend my spare time painting dogs; writing jokes; blogging; savoring a beer or two; shaking my head at world events; and entertaining my two canine pals, Beorn and Boris.


What makes me tick, and what ticks me off

Did you know I’ve been blogging for nearly ten years? Don’t feel bad – nobody else knew either. It’s something I enjoy, and I’d like to think it has something for everyone. Give it a look and see if I’m right. It’s called Almost Daily. Read it to learn what makes me tick, and what ticks me off.
