Tell us about this design.
Its a robot rowing a rowboat. He's probably in a lake. I'd imagine he sneaked out of his cabin and is rowing to the opposite shore where the girl robot camp is. You can tell by the look on his face that he's pretty nervous about the camp counselor checking his bunk. He stuck his dufflebag under the blanket so it kinda looks like he's still in bed, but man...if he gets caught, he knows it'll be a call home. His dad warned him that he better shape up or expect some serious consequences. Why can't he just focus and get his life on track?? Oh well, its a risk, but it'll be worth it. you're only a robot once.
Where are you from?
Simi Valley! Hidden jewel of Southern California. The soda flows like water and the pizza parties are nightly.
How did you get started designing t-shirts?
I was making stupid pictures already...and then i figured out you can submit them to things! Perfect situation.
What advice would you offer to aspiring designers?
Stop already! You're making your ancestors sad.
What would be your dream job?
Probably what I'm doing...weird huh! Teaching and making fun things on the side.
What is your favorite thing about robots?
The lower half.
What would your ideal house be like?
Small and wooden...shingles and a dutch door. and a hedge maze out front.
Motorcycles vs. bicycles: which would win the battle?
I don't what to touch that volatile topic! Politics aren't my thing.
What was your favorite as a kid: comics, cartoons, or movies? Was there a specific title you liked most of all?
Cartoons for sure! I always wanted to like comics, but they were too much work to stay current on.
It probably wasn't my favorite at the time, but in retrospect I'd like to believe that Count Duckula was the best.
What are a few of your favorite websites?
Wikipedia! all day and all night. I like to look at ffffound.com too. oh! and the personal sites of some illustrators and designers that are really good (Kevin Cornell at Bearskinrug.co.uk, Edgar McHerly at InvisibleHairsuit.com, Mike Mitchell at Sirmikeofmitchell.com).
