Jodi  Steve 1Who is behind worn[BUT NOT]forgotten? Here are some answers.

Started by accident and simply as a hobby in 2007, worn[BUT NOT]forgotten is the brainchild of Las Vegas artist and photographer, Steven Makransky, and his wife Jodi. The art is all his. The name is all hers. That’s what happens when two advertising backgrounds collide – Steve, a former Madison Avenue art director and Jodi, a former Disney product manager.

So how did a Philly boy and a SoCal girl meet? Watching an Eagles game, of course. Steve grew up with Bobby Clarke, Mike Schmidt and Dr. J as his heroes. All Jodi knew was that the Rams played in LA (and have since returned) and Dodger Stadium had great hot dogs. Needless to say, Jodi's learned a lot. They each followed their families to Las Vegas, met in 2003 and married in 2005.


However, it wasn’t until the summer of 2011 when worn[BUT NOT]forgotten went from hobby to the real thing.  That August, Steve began re-creating Boca Park 2014and perfecting many of his vintage sports art images. Come the fall, Jodi started exploring ways to get their artwork in front of people. That holiday season, they participated in their first art event…and hit a homerun. Dumbfounded and staring at each other, everything clicked. Their artwork resonated with loyal fans. worn[BUT NOT]forgotten found its niche.

By 2012, Jodi & Steve entered the Farmer’s Market circuit in Las Vegas with great success. They then began exhibiting at larger art shows, craft festivals and expos, even doing some in California, Arizona and Utah. Today, you can find them and their vintage sports artwork online anytime and at events in the Las Vegas area usually 4 days a week.

Silver  HarleyOh, they have two employees. Their feline inventory managers, Silver & Harley, are pictured here on a much needed break.

worn[BUT NOT]forgotten is something different for the fan that has everything. Thanks for stopping by.
