Read about Grin Big!™ at the official website and learn the history of optimism and positive vibes. It all started in a one room school house near Aspen, Colorado in 1977. From there it was published as a poster art decor print that sold 100,000 pieces in the 1990's and became a nationally syndicated comic strip in newspapers. Our first t-shirts were printed in 1990 and were being sold in Boston at the Harvard Coop Bookstore in 1992. The first book entitled, PENMEN, was published in 1995. It was animated for a Disney owned kids network, Jetix Europe in 2006, and is today focused mainly on tee shirt and poster sales. The PENMEN comic strip can still be seen at http://PENMEN.com and the posters are available here at http://GrinBig.com. Gary Blehm, The Optimist, has been spreading the power of optimism and positivity with speeches to children through the 1990's. "Be positive and follow your dreams", Blehm told them. He encouraged children to do what they love to do and to do it for a living. Be yourself. Whatever you love to do find a way to make money with it. Become business men and business women and let your true talents guide you.
