I Cast Magic Missile
About the artist
Aaron A. Fimister
Tell us a bit about this design.
It's a take on the AD&D 2nd Edition logo from back in the day. The design is a nod to all those Mages who's first reaction in any given situation is to cast Magic Missile. It's a reflex action. 1d4+1 points of damage seemed pitiful, but it saved you from the Kobolds!
Where are you from?
Okay I copied this: Fife is a council area and former county of Scotland. It is situated between the Firth of Tay and the Firth of Forth, with inland boundaries to Perth and Kinross and Clackmannanshire. It was originally one of the Pictish kingdoms, known as Fib, and is still commonly known as the Kingdom of Fife within Scotland.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
The first Magic Missile I cast, I threw a Natural 20.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
Name a few of your favorite things.
My kids sense of humour. The RBC. Gadgets and tech. Trooping with the 501st. All the usual Geeky/Nerdy likes loves and pursuits. Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. :)
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Lots and lots of drawings of spaceships, robots, monsters; a sci-fi addict from an early age.
What is your favorite thing about magic?
It exists everywhere you look.
Stormtroopers vs. browncoats: which would win the battle?
The Stormtroopers would win the battle by sheer force of numbers, but the Browncoats would be the big damn heroes at the end of the day. You're not a Browncoat unless you're the underdog.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
My favourite shirt is 'Elliot's New Friend' by Kevin Ross at Go Ape shirts. http://goape.storenvy.com/products/72587-elliot-s-new-friend This was the first mashup shirt that blew me away and I had to own it. I still get stopped in the street wearing this and people marvel at the awesomeness. Kudos, Kevin Ross!
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
I’m not a huge gamer, I am a reader and a movie watcher. They're both different experiences, so would never choose one over the other as better, it just depends on the mood you're in at the time. Favourite book so far? Augh, how can I pick just one!? Okay, I tell you what, most re-read book so far: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Favourite movie. Blade Runner. No question there. Star Wars/The Empire Strikes Back (both un-altered) are a close second and I count them as one unit (Never mention Jedi). Lord of the Rings, third. Sorry, this is as short an answer as you're getting here.
What inspires your work?
Pop culture, Internet memes, fever dreams, the fact that doing this is my only regular income right now!
