Say Hello to The Garfield!

Q: Where did you get your name from?
A: I got my name “Garfield” from the street that the STATE founders first lived on together, and eventually got engaged at. But…if I had a nickel for every time someone asked me “Where’s Odie?” we could fund a lot of bag drops! I was NOT named after a cartoon cat.

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have my own sense of style, and I love color. I like to think of myself as the ray of sunshine riding along on a child’s back. I’m happy (except for when people ask me about Odie)! I’m proud to say I’m made of 100% cotton and look forward to being accessorized - I want to get my badges on!

Q: If you could be any superhero which one would you be?
A: I’d be either Captain America or Wonder Woman. Captain America is a patriot who isn’t afraid to stand up for what he believes in, and Wonder Woman was created as a role model to bring the ideals of love and peace around the world. Seeing both of them fighting crime while wearing a Garfield bag?…pure bliss for a rock star backpack like me!
