Somehow, between working full-time as the visual mastermind redefining the Martletand caring for his (adorable) newborn baby, Penelope, Glen O'Neill finds time to run an artistic empire in the form of Glen O'Neill Dot Com and his hair-brained charity series Beards, Mostly, on top of giving away a boutique’s worth of free t-shirts he designed himself. And in his off hours, if you can call them that, he’s hunched over the drawing board working on more of his trademark cheeky, lighthearted creations.
