About the artist
Tell us about this design.
‘the Big Lebowski’ is one of my favourite films. This whole idea came about from discussing how the Dude was a classic reluctant hero and one of the best examples of the ‘Reluctant Detective’. As the dude says -’he just wants his rug back’ - next thing you know he’s looking for a missing woman, making money drops and getting assaulted by nihilists. From out of that came the idea of a ‘Dude’ themed detective shield.
Where are you from?
A time and a place when plane travel was fun, there were 12 channels and computers still took floppy’s. …That makes me seem a lot older than I am, I swear.
How would you describe your style?
Unfortunately I don’t think I have one. I would love to have a ‘style’. But I have spent my professional career catering from one client to another and changing the way I work to suit them. I guess I got used to that.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would you pick?
What historical figure do you most admire?
I’m Canadian so; Tommy Douglas.
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
Probably spending more time with daughter.
Would you rather solve a crime or get away with one?
Which ever pays better.
Bowling vs. ping pong: which would win the battle?
I will say bowling in honour of ‘el Duderino.’
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
Met Shatner and Nimoy at a convention once. That was cool.
Any shout outs?
Thanks to my wife. And Tee-fury for giving designers/artists this opportunity…
