About the artist
Tell us about this design.
Hey, Listen! The Legends of Hyrule are back for a new adventure with "Songs of Time". Join them as they sail through instant classics such as "Grumble Grumble", "Excuse Me, Princess" and much much more! Grab your Ocarina and your Master Sword and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime. It's a secret to everybody when you listen to the Songs of Time!
What is your most unexpected or exciting memory?
To go along with this design, the first video-game I ever finished from beginning to end on my own was "The Legend of Zelda". It was a life changing moment for a 6 year old. Parents... there's a great world of video games out there that don't include the words "Call of Duty". Due your kids a favor and seek them out. (Artist disclosure - I enjoy the CoD series, but had I only played shooters as a kid, I would be a much angrier person. Adventure games are awesome for helping kids imaginations grow.)
If you could make anyone besides yourself Ruler of the Universe, who would you choose and why?
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe... unless of course that means Skeletor. I'm still not sure who the "Masters" were in that context but whatever. He-Man rules, and Man-At-Arms has a sweet mustache.
Do you have any surprising talents or hobbies?
I'm not sure if it's a talent, but I can hear a song once, and know all of the lyrics for the rest of my life.
Would you rather become a famous cartoonist or have a someone base a famous cartoon character on your life?
I'd like to become a famous cartoonist and then have someone base a famous cartoon character on my life. Now THAT'S success!
Vinyl vs. MP3s: which would win the battle?
Tough call. I love both for different reasons. If it's a battle for convenience, obviously MP3's. If it's a battle for sound... Vinyl. It's also really nice to flip through a vinyl album collection. You also can't get an MP3 signed by your favorite band, or hang an MP3 on your wall... I guess i'm going with Vinyl. I feel old.
Describe your ideal day.
Wake up late, eat some pancakes, proceed to play Skyrim for the next 14 hours, then go back to sleep.
Any shout outs?
To my Fiancee who has never played a Zelda game, Maybe 2012 is the year that finally happens(Fingers crossed). Also, thanks to Shigeru Miyamoto for creating some of the most brilliant and entertaining games consistently for over 25 years.
