All things Texas: Culture, Music, Fashion, Food, Drinks, Art, Travel, People, Products, and more...


The blog topics and entries are brought to you by the crew at Tumbleweed TexStyles.  The writers are made up of 3 Texas enthusiasts:


First off, like many of you, I'm a tried and true Texan. I love every nook and cranny of this great state, from the Corral Theatre in Wimberly to the legendary music (and lack of air conditioning) that emanates from Gruene Hall. This big, eccentric and utterly fascinating Lone Star State has always held a special place in my heart.
In fact, I love it so much that I've spent the last decade of my life writing about it. All of it. The good and the bad, the quirky and the mainstream. If it exudes a Texas flavor, it's a ripe subject for me to discuss, rave about and mull over. I could be grooving to the jazz and blues-infused rhythms of Lyle Lovett or chasing down chorizo-stuffed jalapeƱos...it doesn't matter. Nothing says home to me like the warm weather and Southern appeal that Texas holds.

Jeb Matulich has lived in Texas his entire life, and has literally lived in almost every corner of the state.  Jeb is the son of a high school football coach that moved the family frequently during his younger years of life.  Jeb is what many would call a self-taught artist. Drawing and painting became a love of his at a very young age. Jeb would spend hours drawing from Sports Illustrated magazines and Air Force publications. After a couple of art courses in middle school he was hooked for life.   Jeb was a nationally acclaimed draftsman in high school which led to his pursuit of an Architecture degree at Texas Tech University in the early 90’s. Three changes in his major later, he found himself teaching and coaching like his father. Jeb finds inspiration for his artwork and designs from all things Texana.  His subject matter ranges from old rusty neon signs and landscapes, to Texas landmarks and maps. His love for Texas and design led him to pair up with a fellow teacher, Brian Wysong to form Tumbleweed TexStyles in the fall of 2011.  Together they are trying to create a trendy artistic Texas t-shirt line that appeals to Texans everywhere.  Jeb currently is a high school art teacher in Frisco, Texas.  You can find Jeb at the local thrift store or first in line at an area estate sale looking to find materials and ideas for his artwork.  Jeb documents all of his art endeavors through his blog at www.junkytrinkets.com


I grew up in Fort Worth, spending most of my time playing sports, socializing with friends, and dreaming about one-day business ventures.  One such dream was to get a Marketing Degree; a dream fulfilled when I graduated from Texas Tech University.  While at Tech, I continued to dream big and develop a true passion for helping others and all things Texas.  After serving as a marketing professional, I soon found myself as a marketing teacher and coach in Frisco, Texas.  It was this career change that led me to meet Jeb Matulich; a fellow educator with the shared passion for Texas, art, music and design and then we launched Tumbleweed TexStyles in the fall of 2011.  My biggest passions continue to be helping people, building and promoting my businesses, and traveling all over the great state of Texas with my wife and making sure to find the time to stop at all the local music and food spots.


Two teachers with a passion for Texas, music, art, design, & fashion, decided to combine these to create Tumbleweed TexStyles. A tumbleweed is something that will go where the wind takes it. It will also grab ahold and carry with it, the things in its' path. That is the desire of Tumbleweed TexStyles. Our goal is to grab ahold of every lover of Texas that is in our path as we promote the emergence of a new Texas culture. The prideful Texan that is artsy, creative, & stylish.
