Where are you from?
I am from Macclesfield in the UK.
How would you describe your style?
I am still trying to figure that out, I'm finding that as I'm pushing myself to develop techniques I'm starting to produce more cartoon designs.
If you could collaborate with anyone else, who would you pick?
I'm a Ghibli fan, so in a dream, Hayao Miyazaki.
What historical figure do you most admire?
Art is something I've always been into, and Salvador Dali is an artist whose work has really interested me.
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
I do work with young people with Asperger's Syndrome as a part time job, and that's something that I did before designing t-shirts.
Would you rather explore the jungle or the desert?
Can it be a desolate post apocalyptic wastleand type desert, I like Mad Max alot!
Ninjas vs. pirates: which would win the battle?
I think it all hinges on where the battle takes place. In most case my money is on ninjas, they're just way cooler.
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
Dull grey colours, I have been told a few times that I dress like I'm from the real world in the Matrix films.
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
I've not been outside of Europe, I spent a couple of weeks in Italy years ago. That was propably my most adventurous travel experience. I would like to visit The States and Japan someday.
