About the artistArt curated by
Tell us about this design.
I've always been a huge Arrested Development fan, and Tobias Funke is probably one of my favorite characters. The whole Blue Man Group fiasco was such a great moment in the show, I had to create something from it. I wanted to do something simple and iconic.
Where are you from?
I am from Waterloo, IA.
Which art style would you most like to learn?
Anything and everything! Although maybe not a style, I would like to learn to have a bit more patience in my designs, I tend to rush and can sometimes leave behind some sloppy results.
If you had a time machine, which era would you visit first?
Feudal Japan. No good reason behind that answer.
What goal do you most aspire towards?
To be at least 50% happy with my artwork. I'm my worst critic, and can sometimes question myself perhaps too much on a design decision.
If you could stop any t-shirt trend in its tracks, which would you end? What trend would you like to see started?
I dunno, I think everything has its time and place. I'd hate to say any trend should be stopped, as long as people are happy and buying it and making the artwork, it's all good.
Would you rather work at the banana stand or as a member of Blue Man Group?
Banana stand for sure. That costume is the best!
Atlantis vs. Lost: which would win the battle?
Lost hands down.
Describe the first shirt you ever designed.
I'd really rather not.
What has been your most inspiring art experience?
I don't think there has been any one experience, but over the past couple years, I feel like I've been accepted into a circle of artists that I had always admired. It feels good to be loved.
Any shout outs?
Where do I start? The RBC, the BRC, Ian Leino, Mike Mitchell, Jimiyo, Olly Moss, Sean Husbands, etc. etc. the list goes on and on...
