About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
The shirt is based off a certain sparkly someone of a similar name. Just enough to give people pause before they realize how awesome you are. Not to mention, this is a “game”, so it makes sense to support a team!
Where are you from?
We hail from an apartment that we fondly refer to as Kings Landing.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
This shirt is a collaboration between GrlizzyBear, who did the lettering, and Jak-O-Lope who drew the Direwolves.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
Our plans to win the game of thrones.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Jak-O-Lope: Forests, rain, sword fights, and beans.
GrlizzyBear: Cowboys, bats, making puns, and chowder
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Jak-O-Lope: I drew a lot of beavers, dragons, and comics. And I was such a stickler for detail--all my stick people had five fingers on each hand and my dragons had every single scale. Drawing was srs bznz.
GrlizzyBear: I drew tons of comics when I was a kid. I learned a lot about figure drawing from "Drawing the Marvel Way", which is great if you are just starting out.
What is your favorite thing about fantasy?
We both love to imagine how people react to extraordinary things. With fantasy, you can have interesting human drama on a scale and in a form that exceeds reality. Fantasy tends to have more fun, while still often touching upon fundamental truths.
Wolves vs. lions: which would win the battle?
When money is on the line, probably lions; they're bigger. That said, we’d be rooting for the wolves; they're way cooler.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Jak-O-Lope: One of my friends got me a philosoraptor shirt, before I even knew it was a meme. I thought it was the best pun ever. It's also green. I have a thing for green shirts.
GrlizzyBear: My favorite shirt is of a dinosaur spewing a rainbow out of its mouth. It just makes me feel like stomping around and overwhelming people with cheerfulness.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Games combine the stories of books, the visuals of films, and have the bonus of interactivity. The medium itself allows for creativity and flexibility in ways that haven't even fully been explored yet, so we love the potential as well. Jak-O-Lope is a Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess fan, and GrlizzyBear still can’t get enough of SSX3.
What inspires your work?
Jak-O-Lope: Compelling stories, the beauty of nature, and clever concepts.
GrlizzyBear: Great characters just beg to be drawn, because a good drawing can tell you almost endless things about someone.
