About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
It's a development of another design based on the Fonz involving an uppercase A. I love type and am usually mucking around with letterforms one way or another.
Where are you from?
The English south coast.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I'm amazing, with a genius eye for great graphics.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
That actually I'm not amazing, and I don't have a genius eye for great graphics.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Card decks, rum, Mercedes cars, finding a lost £5 note in my jeans.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Bad copies of Cure posters. I was like that kid in Fear & Loathing who just did portraits of Barbra Streisand.
What is your favorite thing about the Fonz?
His loyalty to his style.
Typography vs. illustration: which would win the battle?
Type, obviously. Words create images of their own.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Infinity MPG by Ross Zietz - simple graphics, good message, great tee colour.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Reading. My current fave book is "The Language of Things" by Deyan Sudjic.
What inspires your work?
Fame & glory.
Any shout outs?
Anushka, Luca & Mya - my wife, son & daughter. You're my life. Also, my big brother, Gordy - he's always supported my tee designs.
