About the artistArt curated by
Tell us a bit about this design.
To start with I would like to say that Pokemon was a huge part of my childhood. As much as I like the new generation of Pokemon, the original 151 were and always will be the best. Hopefully this simple t-shirt design is something Pokemon fans would want to buy and wear.
Where are you from?
I was born in Exeter, Devon. I’m now currently living in Cheltenham.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I’m a 21 year old Graphic Designer, a geek and I collect N64 games. I also have a black belt in Judo.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
It takes me ages to do anything and I always leave things until the last minute.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Video games, music, Photography, Graphic Design, Pokemon, Lost, Futurama and Dragon Ball Z.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Well I distinctly remember making a Red Hot Chili Peppers album cover when I was a kid, so I going to say album covers.
What is your favorite thing about Pokemon?
My favourite thing I love about Pokemon is that I could find and play my original Pokemon Blue game cartridge now after 12 years and still not get bored of it.
Arcade vs. console: which would win the battle?
Console. I grew up playing on consoles so it’s a no brainer, really.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I own too many great looking t-shirts so it hard just to pick one. Personal favourites include my Street Fighter 2 t-shirt, Nigel's Green Skeleton Shirt from This Is Spinal Tap and my Three Keyboard Cat Moon t-shirt, for obvious reasons of awesomeness.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
I do love watching movies but gaming for me is better. I think I have to say that Super Mario 64 is my favourite game, mainly because of the nostalgia and the memories I have playing this game when I was young. Also, Lemmings is a close second, I loved playing that game on the Atari years ago.
What inspires your work?
Video Games definitely influence my design work. I would love find a job involving video games in some way or another. Becoming a UI Artist or working for any video game magazine would be great.
