About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
Hmmm... well what it's based on I'm hoping is obvious... Basically playing on a few things, Dr Who travels through time "portals" so seemed right choice to mix with Portal 2 the game, there is a 3rd part to it that some might not get... it has to do with the title - Portal Who... it sounds like Porta-Loo, which for all you Americans, is the same thing as your Porta-Potty. The Portal character looks like the toilet sign figure and the tardis does kind of resemble a porta-loo :D
Where are you from?
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
That yes as an Australian I ride a kangaroo to work each day.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
That I am lying about riding a kangaroo
Name a few of your favorite things.
Food?... something jaffa - orangey chocolate mix mmmmm. People?...my wife and kids rock! Music?... something rockin' - Fave Oz band - Fireballs, Fave Int. Band - Fugazi
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I'd scribble on everything. Lots of clips around the ears from my parents and teachers for drawing all over my school work! Used to copy a lot of stuff then mainly characters, only been the last 2 years I've got back into drawing.
What is your favorite thing about Portal?
One of my friends was playing it, the whole concept is really cool and the way the designers of the game have put it together is amazing, the physics of it all. Kinda does my head in a bit, the way you drop here fall out there etc.
Kangaroo vs. Tasmanian Devil: which would win the battle?
Totally would depend on what weapons they were using... but probably the kangaroo as it has a huge pouch to store extra ammo :P
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Oh that's an old shirt. It's an old style bowling shirt from a Rocket from the Crypt tour in Oz back in '94? Eeeek! Rocket print above pocket area and skull and crossbones and band name on back.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Reading - has it over movies hands down... books tend to have lots more detail and they tend to cut out way to much when they adapt them for movies, plus I have am over active imagination so books are great for that as I have to create the scenes. Favourite book? that's a hard one... two of my favourite series are Otherland by Tad Williams and The Dark Tower by Stephen King.
What inspires your work?
LOVE street art! Have belonged to online communities for years, wish we had heaps more art about the place in Sydney, it's extremely lacking. Mainly love characters and quirky stuff but not so obscure that you look at it and go ....whahuh?
Any shout outs?
Amy! Who just damn rocks! And my superhero alter-egos DISTRACTO and IRRELEVANCE MAN
