EZ Design, the company that created the iconic cross tattoo design, is giving its designers a new paycheck of $100,000 for their work, the Associated Press reports.
EZ designer Mike Sorensen, who worked on the design for over a decade, said that while he never imagined it would be so popular, the job was a “natural fit.”
“I really felt like my job was to create the Easter eggs, and I was always trying to make Easter eggs as fun as possible,” Sorelsen said.
“When you’re creating the Easter egg design, you don’t think about how much it’s going to cost, or what the design process is going to look like.
The idea is to have fun, so that the Easter Egg design becomes something people will love and they’ll want to buy.”
EZ designers get to make a living, and Sorenersen said they will be paid $50,000 per design.
EASTERN LANDMARKS EARLY DAYS IN AMERICA: The U.S. was founded on the idea of “home away from home” for its founders, and the day was not lost on them, writes Michael B. Fletcher.
This weekend marks the start of spring and the start to fall, with many Americans heading to the country’s favorite holiday, the day of birth.
The National Park Service said on Saturday that it will be hosting a series of activities at the parks, including a “Home Away From Home” program, and that the agency will also be working with local businesses to promote the holiday.
“For more than two decades, we’ve made our nation the best place in the world to celebrate the American Spring,” National Park Superintendent Dan Ashe said in a statement.
“Now, with more than 100 million people visiting our parks annually, we need to make sure we continue to attract new visitors and bring visitors back to our parks.”

As for the EZ designs, they were designed by Michael B Fletcher, a designer who worked with Disney for decades and has worked with many famous brands like Apple, Nike, and even Microsoft.
Fletcher said he never expected it would get this much attention.
“I had no idea that the design that the parks were doing would become so popular,” Fletcher said.
Fletcher told the AP that he wasn’t worried about getting his name out in the media or having to be paid for his work.
“You’re not paid to put up a tattoo on somebody’s arm,” Fletcher explained.
“You’re paid to create an Easter egg.
The only thing you have to pay for is the tattoo.
I don’t have to do anything.
It’s a free service for the parks.
I’ve done this for years.”
The company was founded in 1992 by Fletcher and his father, John Fletcher, who also designed Disney theme parks.
The company is a spinoff of the company Fletcher founded in 1989, with his father as the founder and the company being run by John Fletcher.
The family also owns the Orlando Sentinel newspaper and owns Orlando Sentinel Properties.
