McCall, an art major at the University of Minnesota and then St. Cloud State, started his business (libertymaniacs.com) about 10 years ago and runs it with his wife, Mandy. While he calls the graphic work “multipartisan,” it tends to lean conservative and libertarian. McCall said he’s bounced around the political spectrum and doesn’t seem to be particularly zealous. Just a guy who wants to do cool artwork and sell it on T-shirts and mugs.
He said that he recently took his anti-NSA satire to CafePress, and it now includes tote bags, key chains and hats. The T-shirt is a top seller. To his knowledge, they have not had any complaints from the agency.
“Right now, it’s just speculation” on whether he’s being targeted or if Zazzle was just being overly cautious.
As for critics who doubt the government would really give a rip about a Minnesota artist, he said: “I hope they are right. If not, it’s kind of going to ruin my business model.”
