About the artist
Tell us about this design.
It's pretty much my childhood fantasy realized in t-shirt form. And it's JAWESOME.
Where are you from?
Arkansas, the Natural State. Specifically Little Rock and currently Fort Smith, the setting of "True Grit" and other awesomeness.
How would you describe your style?
I draw what I think people will like... and sometimes that means changing styles. But I really love vintage art.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would you pick?
I already have a great collaborative team with Team Ninjaink (Robert Simpson, Mark Pellegrini, and Jean Luc Pham). But if I could add a celebrity, I'd say Bruce Timm-- I love his style.
What historical figure do you most admire?
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
I currently am an audiologist, so I do a lot of diagnostic testing and amplification. For recreation, I'd probably be making my own line of guinea pig clothes.
Would you rather swim with the sharks or brave gorilla territory?
Swim with sharks. I think they're misunderstood -- if you turn your head upside down, they're actually SMILING! See, no danger at all.
Squid vs. octopus: which would win the battle?
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
Any variation of blue!
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
I never get sick of Walt Disney World, since we used to go there on our family vacations. They can have my money as long as they continue to entertain me.
Any shout outs?
The kind people at Center for Hearing in Fort Smith, Arkansas, my fellow class of 2011, and my supportive family. Thanks to Manuela, Georgie, and Harvey for laughs!
