Note on color: The women's shirt is referred to as "Natural" although the men's "Cream" color is very similar. It is the shirt blank manufacturer's naming convention.
Where are you located?
In the land of the newlywed and nearly dead: Victoria, British Colombia
Tell us about yourself:
There's not a lot of things I can say here that probably isn't already on the internet, but one time when I was 4, I had to choose beating Super Mario Bros for the first time and going pee (My older brother threatened to reset the game if I left to go to the bathroom.) Needless to say, it was a soggy victory.
What's a day in the life of Glen like?
These days I'm very busy. My wife is very pregnant and is due on Nov 1st. Aside from waiting for my first child to arrive I spend most of my time drawing comics and working as the Junior Designer at The Martlet (UVic's Independent Newspaper).
Do you own alot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite?
56 in total. As far as which is my favorite I've always liked "Pandamonium" from Threadless, but I also love seeing other people wearing my design "My Face, Your Chest". There's nothing better than having your face on someone else's chest.
If you could go only to one restaurant for the next five years, which
would it be?
My heart says sushi, but my stomach says IHOP. Probably this sushi restaurant in town called Azuma.
What do you like to do for fun?
Sadly, work! I'm very fortunate to be working in a field that coincides with my interests. So my work most of the time pretty fun. Aside from that I tend to have average geek hobbies. Comics, Video Games and Movies.
Star Trek or Star Wars?
Wars. When asked what my religion is I always answer with Chewbaccastafarian.
Would you rather survive a zombie apocalypse or a nuclear apocalypse?
That's a toughie, there's never going to be a way to prepare enough for either, but I would rather band together against a horde of the undead than fight for supplies with other nuclear survivors. As they say on LOST: "Live Together, Die Alone."
