About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
What if you could roll up all of history? Ultimate katamari!
Tell us a bit about this design.
I'm a huge fan of katamari and evolution itself. One day back in my high school science class we were going over the theory of evolution and Me And My Katamari had just came out for PSP and I was playing that nonstop. Eventually I doodled this design in a notebook. Recently found that doodle and decided that it might look good on a tshirt. And here we are now :D
Where are you from?
I live in Crystal, Minnesota. Minnesota's a great place to live and has some of the coolest people living here, just sayin' ;)
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I'm 20 years old and I'm currently going to college for graphic design. I play way too many video games and I'm just a flat out nerdy guy (though it could be a lot worse). I'm currently working on a graphic novel and one of my dreams is to open a store in Minneapolis and sell my own designs.Also I do commission work almost all year round if you're interested in my works.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
That I'm doing this interview in a towel :X
Name a few of your favorite things.
Megaman, simplistic art, street art, most art in general, cool people, mushrooms on food (the non hallucinogenic ones of course), cute animals, Futurama, completely stupid youtube videos, completely stupid things in general, Star Wars, Quentin Tarantino, Foo Fighters, Godzilla, the list could go on and on :D
What are your feelings about pets?
Pets are pretty awesome! I myself have a chinchilla and a dog. They're great companions and for people who are crammed in a room doing homework for hours on end (like myself), they help keep you sane.
Would you rather create a game or play one?
Both! But at the moment I really want to create one. I have a really good idea, I just have to dig up an animator and a programmer to help me with it.
Ancient Greeks vs. ancient Romans: which would win the battle?
Haha I just had this discussion the other day, Greeks all the way. Romans are just wimpy Greeks, plus their gods are named after planets, that's just lame :P
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Hmm...I don't own too many shirts so this should be easy, BUUUUT I would have to say my Who tshirt i got from one of their concerts. Too bad theres a hole in the nipple from a power drill. Yeeeaah, that's what I get for being an idiot with my friends.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
That's a tough one. My mood shifts from movies and gaming. But right now I would have to say gaming since I'm finished with watching Dexter and I'm still playing Dead Rising 2 (also Fallout New Vegas comes out next week!)
What inspires your work?
A big chunk of it would have to be from video games. But my biggest inspiration has been the Scott Pilgrim series. I have crazy amounts of respect for Bryan Lee O'Malley and I hope to get as well known as he does (though I don't see that happening haha)
Any shout outs?
Uhhh I'm really bad at these because I always feel bad when I do these because I feel I leave people out. One guys I have to give a shout out to most def is Justin Orris. If it wasn't for him, my art wouldn't be on the internet, also he's an awesome guy. And all my friends and family who have been very supportive of my art and made me go the extra mile!
