About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
So, this design was inspired by one my favourite video games i used to play when i was much younger. I bet you guys get the reference and i hope you like the hedgehog as much as i do.
Where are you from?
From a small town called Tübingen in Germany. We are well known for our great university and the friendly wild unicorns everywhere (...and me, of course). Its just like Hogwarts here... but awesome.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I love beer. Furthermore i like to create large format crochet-ceilings with dolphin motifs...for money.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I´m a fat old bastard, sitting naked in front of the computer screen. Seriously: DONT TELL ANYONE!
Name a few of your favorite things.
zombies, monsters, Condorman, Aquaman (coolest superhero-powers ever), Duke Nukem, Patrick Stewart, Philip K. Dick, comics, music, skateboarding, Tarantino, Black Dynamite, retro-games, Rosario Dawson
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I guess it was some kind of symbiosis between the drawings of Jackson Pollock and the one-minute-sculptures of Erwin Wurm. Must have been really awesome stuff because my mom always pinned my artworks to the refrigerator.
What is your favorite thing about comics?
The alliterations in superheros secret identity names. You know, "Bruce Banner", "Peter Parker", "Susan Storm", "Asa Akira"......oh, wait....
Link vs. Megaman: which would win the battle?
Link, of course. No question. There are a lot of youtube-videos out there to prove that.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
A damn hot and almost naked Jabba-Girl in chains sitting in front of a really fat Carrie Fisher who is holding the sexy Jabba at a dog leash while eating junk-food. ( I guess, that would be exactly what the scene would look like if episode VI was shot today...without any digital remastering and stuff. )
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
All of them......but i´m a really lazy person, so if i have to choose one it would be watching movies. My favourite one is Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner". You guys may have heard of it...
What inspires your work?
During my childhood i was reading comics and playing video-games non-stop. I also enjoyed watching films and tv-shows like StarTrek, Saber Rider, Simpsons etc. My parents always told me to stop - to get my ass the hell out of the house and meet some friends. From their point of view my affinity to this "alternate reality" must have looked like a complete waste of time. But there was alway a plan in my mind... So, look at me now. My design was choosen by the amazing guys at teefury.com. In your face, dad. IN YOUR FACE!
Any shout outs?
