About the artist
Tell us about this design.
It's part Aliens, part Bill Paxton's character Hudson, part Full Metal Jacket awesomeness. I've wanted to do an Aliens tee of some description for a while, and this is what popped out of my head. I try not to question why my brain chooses what it does. I'm sure it has it's reasons. I trust it.
Where are you from?
Geographically - Australia. Literally - my dad. Metaphysically - me.
How would you describe your style?
Eclectic. Each illustration dictates its own style. Some choices are more successful than others, but the uncertainty keeps me on my toes.
If you could collaborate with anyone else, who would you pick?
Dante Alighieri to illustrate his work the Divine Comedy.
What historical figure do you most admire?
Hmmm...if by 'historical' you mean 'dead' then there are many that I admire in general. Leonardo Da Vinci, Jeff Buckley, Syd Barrett, Alexander the Great and Neil Armstrong are just a few. They each did some impressive things with their talents.
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
Probably going to bed at a reasonable hour.
Would you rather play video games or create one?
Play them. Kicking my kids arse in Modern Warfare is very satisfying.
Sandwiches vs. pizza: which would win the battle?
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
All of them. It's not a vacation if you don't enjoy it, and I love getting away and just chilling with my family.
Any shout outs?
My wife who has infinite tolerance for me even if she doesn’t understand why I draw the things I draw; my kids who like what I draw but think daddy has lost the plot, my friends online who make me feel happy, sad, angry, calm, inspired, frustrated, motivated, demotivated, full of waffles and sleepy because of the time difference; and everyone who likes, supports and encourages my brain-sharts. Thank you!
