About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
Minecraft meets Shepard Fairey. We have all seen many Obey and Hope mashups popping up everywhere so I though it was time I gave it a go. There isn't much else to say except Obey the Creeper! SSSssssss.
Where are you from?
I'm originally from the outskirts of a small city called Carlisle located in the northern countryside of the UK. I don't think we have a claim to fame, except we have a castle that we all seem to be proud of and the Roman Wall but thats about it. Now I live in the hustle and bustle of Newcaslte-upon-Tyne which also has the Roman Wall, it's just the other end of it. Anyway enough of the Romans.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I am currently making a short animation for my degree and I would love everyone to see it when it's all done! Myself and my mate have put a lot of time and passion into it and it would be awesome if we could let as many people as we can see it when it is complete.
Head over to my blog and drop me a comment or email and we will send you a copy when it is done! It would be our pleasure!
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I'm not actually a massive fan of mashups and I have a little hippo called Henry that lives with me.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Olives, Cottage Pie, Sleeping, Textures, Pressing Snooze, Animation, A Clean Desktop & Fresh Air. Oh and Pandas.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Things that fly, in any form I could make them. I always used to draw space shuttles and aeroplanes and make big paper planes out of sugar paper. For some reason most of my drawings were of realistic things, maybe I don't have an imagination, who knows?
What is your favorite thing about Minecraft?
…Watching Rich play it! The last time I looked he was using lava in an attempt to remove the water he had used to fill his neighbours house with. House Aquarium + Lava = Burning Town + Very Unpopular.
Creeper vs. Andre the Giant: which would win the battle?
Creeper, without a doubt. Explosive attack coupled with ninja perk has no match.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Well to be honest most of my shirts are the typical main stream, off the hanger types. Although I have just ordered a couple of Ugmonk shirts and one of them has a huge & symbol on the front. I'm pretty excited to get my hands on that! I need answers… & what?!
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Reading makes me fall asleep so its not that. I either get really bored of games or stupidly competitive, so I'm gona have to go with watching movies. Picking a favourite film is like asking me my favourite colour, I always change my mind and panic when someone puts me on the spot. I then blurt out something like The Shawshank Redemption; I mean c'mon why do I say that, that's everyones favourite film. So today I'll go with Inception, since I'm the architect.
What inspires your work?
Anything I have seen that day or dreamt about the night before, everything but nothing in particular. How's that for a vague answer! Pattern and colour are a great influence to what I create. As many say, colour evokes emotion…
Any shout outs?
Just a couple!
The first goes to my good friend of mine and partner in creation - Jonny or ameba2k as many know him - amebagraphics.blogspot.com
The second is for Rich, he keeps me entertained at uni with his crude humour and his endless quests on Minecraft - http://lotsavisuals.tumblr.com/
And finally to my lovely girlfriend Louise. Hi Lou!
