Artist John W. Golden realized there were many phrases he uttered over and over again to his children, “Share Your Toys,” “Go Play Outside” and “Ask Your Mother.” Inspired by these universal parenting truths, he launched By Order of the Management, a series of colorful illustrations highlighting familiar parenting quotes that are ideal decor for kids rooms, bathrooms and playrooms to encourage kids (and mini visitors to your home) to toe the line.
If Golden’s work looks vaguely familiar, it may be because his illustrations
have been featured on the Cartoon Network, Toon Disney, Animal Planet and Nickelodeon, as well as in Land of Nod catalogs.
The brightly colored By Order of the Management prints are available exclusively through his Etsy store with 44 different messages, including, “Clean Up Your Room,” “Eat Your Vegetables,” “Read a Book,” and “Wipe the Seat.”
Signs are available in a variety of sizes, including 2.625″ x 4.5″ (perfect for series of prints), 6″ x 10″ on enhanced matte paper suitable for framing and “art block” which is mounted on 3/4″ salvaged Birch plywood and sealed using a non-toxic water-based sealer. The block has a hole for wall hanging or can sit on a shelf or desk.
