About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
The design was inspired by the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series. If the Cylons had a Pyramid Ball team, this would be their logo. However, after the near annihilation of the human race, who would they play against?
Where are you from?
Fort Fairfield, Maine. Way up by the Canadian border, eh?
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I want them to know that even though I was born with 16 toes, I'm still just a regular guy like anyone else, with regular feelings, and dreams...
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I was born with 16 toes.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Movies, Rock N' Roll, sci-fi, horror, the Tick, smoked string cheese, T-Shirts, making music, sarcasm
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I did a lot of creature and robot designs. I mean, they weren't really designs to me back then. I just drew what I thought looked cool. Some of my classmates used to pay me in Skittles to do their art projects for them.
What is your favorite thing about robots?
The sounds they make. Since I was a child there has always been something extremely appealing to me about the sounds of gears and servos in motion, wheels rolling, and metal brushing against metal. Kinda hard for them to sneak up on a guy, though.
Star Wars vs. Battlestar Galactica: which would win the battle?
Definitely Star Wars. Sure, they may have Resurrection, but all the firepower in the entire Cylon armada is no match for the sheer awesomeness of the Death Star. Although, the Imperials could use a few Sixes.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I have this great tee with the Tick holding his pet capybara, Speak, that says, "Evil. Gathering like lint in the navel of the body public!" Any Tick tee would be my favorite, although there really aren't that many available. So many great quotes!
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Tough choice between movies and books, but I will have to go with movies. The first movie I ever saw in the theater will always be my all-time favorite. I was 4 years-old and the movie was called, "Star Wars: A New Hope".
What inspires your work?
Music is a great source of inspiration for me. One can always make a subconscious parallel between a particular subject matter they are working on, and a piece of music. When I'm doing creature or starship design, I look to John Williams to guide my hand through his magnificent scores. When I'm working on something darker and more complex, I may throw on some Tool. It really just depends on what I need to convey, but it's almost an involuntary decision.
Any shout outs?
To my buddy Chris for his great ideas, and to my girl for her brutally honest critiques of my designs. Also, to all the other artists featured on here. You guys are awesome!
