Long Live Charlie Pace
About the artistArt curated by
Tell us a bit about this design.
Drive Shaft is a terrible band; the best worst band ever. With the "death" of Charlie, we figure they would have tried to cash in with a memorial tour. This is what we imagined the tour shirt would have been like.
Where are you from?
Salem, Oregon: the Great Northwest! Where the micro-brews and the rain are endless.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
Our designs are the result of a partnership between my design skills and the witty outbursts of my brother, Skorpyon. He created MS Paint "masterpieces" of his awesome concepts. I thought they were so good that I used my skills to bring them to life out of his hellishly executed concepts. BROTHER POWERS UNITE!
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
Skorp: I'm such a nerd that I've played the same text based MMORPG for 8 years.
Dakin: I'm usually drinking when I make our designs... which explains a lot.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Dakin: Photoshopping my friends' heads into inappropriate pictures, fast cars I don't own, smoke breaks and other peoples' liquor.
Skorp: Going to the coast with my wife, playing RIFTS with the boys and BBQs (I'm new to the grill so I prefer just eating the food and drinking beer).
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Dakin: True story... Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) is my friend Adam's older brother. I started my interest in art when he showed me how to draw Ninja Turtles eating pizza when I was in 1st grade.
What is your favorite thing about Lost?
Dakin: Oh man, okay... character development, plot twists, flash sideways..s..s, mystery, intrigue, time travel, the way fans dialogue to reach conclusions to unanswered questions... I could go on and on!
Skorp: Kate with guns.
Guitar vs. drums: which would win the battle?
Skorp: The easy answer is guitars because of the sweet, tasty riffs. But when a drummer can destroy a bad ass drum solo... not much is better than that.
Dakin: My brother is stupid. As a Sweed, he should know that this planet is owned by wicked Scandinavian black metal guitarists.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Dakin: I don't wear shirts.
Skorp: It's a toss up... either my "Super Plumber" (by Jason Tracewell 06/22/10) or our George Washington/Captain America mashed potatoes because it was our first print.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Skorp: Games. All totaled, I have thousands of hours put into the Phantasy Star series.Hit me up when PSO2 comes out. Player name is "Skorpyon"!
Dakin: Games. All totaled, I have thousands of hours put into the Phantasy Star series. Hit me up when PSO2 comes out. Player name is "Nia"!
What inspires your work?
Dakin: Pretty much whatever Skorp says I need to make unless I have a random stroke of amazeballs.
Skorp: Anything and everything. Usually I just try to think of shirts I would wear myself.
Any shout outs?
Liquor from the bottom shelf, God for delaying the Rapture until after our design hit TeeFury, the "insiders" (who are so inside, only they know who they are) and, of course, our wives. Without their complete lack of support we may never have tried to do this to spite them.
