Mr. Cluck's Fried Chicken
About the artistArt curated by
Where are you from?
Salem, Oregon. It's a magical land of wizards, dragons and other amazing things that no other cities have. It's awesome.
How would you describe your style?
My brother, Skorp, comes up with most of our concepts. Most of them are all very pop culture heavy. If we are talking about the execution of his concepts, my style is actually a compromise with my genetic make-up. I have what's know as familial tremors (thanks Grandma) so the more I try to keep my hands steady, the more they shake... not awesome for design and illustration as you can imagine. I've had to adopt a style that takes the tremors into account. My illustrations now bear a resemblance to those found in Highlights magazine.
If you could collaborate with anyone else, who would you pick?
Skorp: Stan Lee. I don't know what we would collaborate on. Maybe a gangster rap album but being able to say I worked with him would be awesome.
Dakin: Nikola Tesla. I would collaborate with him to, i don't know... create more death rays or something!
What historical figure do you most admire?
We're pretty down with good ol' George Washington. He kind of has a super hero status to us.
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
Skorp: I would be doing what I am now. Working in a machine shop.
Dakin: If we don't get this shirt thingy we're working on up and running, I may be delivering pizza the rest of my life! AAAHHHHHH!
Would you rather own a submarine or a blimp?
Skorp: Hearing about Paul Allen's submarine that holds 12 people submerged for 2 weeks has really made me want a submarine.
Dakin: Is it weird that I am basing this decision on the death I would suffer should one of these contraptions fail?! I gotta go with the long plummet to the ground versus the claustrophobic drowning. I guess it's a blimp for me please...
Lost vs. Star Wars: which would win the battle?
LOST! We are confident the writers would be able to fix the ending to ensure it, they are very tricky people... unless that's exactly what Ben Linus WANTS us to think...
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
Skorp: Black is my favorite but I have come to love red shirts thanks to my obsession with the Portland Trailblazers
Dakin: Black. I literally own maybe 5 shirts that aren't black.
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
Skorp: Best travel experience for a story is when I turned 21 and got off work at 2:30pm and went straight to the bar til 1:30am. I had to get on a plane at 5am. I don't remember getting on but I made it to my lay over in Utah where I 'slept' in the airport and some how made my flight to Montana.
Dakin: ^THIS! Ahhh hahaha! Oh man, I was smacking him square in the face trying to get him to wake up so he would make the flight. At the airport, our Mom and I kept looking at each other like "Oh they are SOOO not letting him on this plane."
Any shout outs?
Yeah, the time I cut the top of my thumb off. Shouted out pretty good that day.
