About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
I've always been a fan of the Friday the 13th series primarily because Jason will use anything he can get his hands on to take out his victims. I had the idea to compile every single weapon he had ever used in the original film series and incorporate them into a design. It wasn't until I really went through the list that I realized that this guy is *really* creative. Sleeping bags? Whaling spears? Electric guitars? Well done, sir.
Where are you from?
Baton Rouge, LA
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I am a browncoat at heart. I am also a ton of other things at heart, but all with a brown coat on. Shiny.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I have never seen The Godfather.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Life in general is pretty sweet. I also dig film, music, art, and video games. My favorite film is a tie between The Shawshank Redemption and The Thing. Which probably says a lot about me. I like anything that would be deemed "creative". And I really dig sandbox video games because rules and limitations suck.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I built a lot of things. Costumes, props, time machines, etc. I also drew a lot.
What is your favorite thing about horror movies?
Everything. But if I had to narrow it down to only a few, I would have to say gratuitous gore and absurd campiness. Horror, to me, is a fun genre. If it's fun, I'm sold. If it's genuinely scary, that's just a bonus.
Indiana Jones vs. Han Solo: which would win the battle?
Good question...hmm. Well, technology is certainly on Captain Solo's side, but I'm going to have to side with Indy on this one. Something about a lone man battling Nazis and *winning* gains my respect. Plus he's better looking.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
A yellow graphic tee with the numbers "1994" printed very large on it. I don't know why it's my favorite. Nothing significant happened in 1994 other than my turning ten years of age. Maybe I just subconsciously love the color yellow. Or maybe an elaborate time travel plot has yet to unfold and my subconscious is trying to warn me. Either way, it's a pretty sweet shirt.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
On the ADD Slacker scale, I rank somewhere in the middle, so I would have to say watching movies. It's just enough emotional involvement to rank as "effort" and just enough interaction to fall short of "interactive gaming". To be honest, I love all three, but if I had to choose a medium and title, it would of course be film and 'The Thing'. To me, *that* is the epitome of entertainment.
What inspires your work?
Cult media, if I had to pinpoint one source. Anything I admire or love, or anything my friends and I hold in high regard. Ideas are constantly parading through my mind, clashing together to form new and exciting possibilities.
Any shout outs?
My family and friends. And of course myself. I can be found at www.adamrabalais.deviantart.com. Peace out.
