About the artistArt curated by
Tell us a bit about this design.
Inspired by Daft Punk's amazing soundtrack, a soundtrack so good even people who didn't like the movie admitted the music was incredible, and one of the few complete motion picture score albums in my CD collection.
Where are you from?
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, born, raised and dwelling.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I am the Alpha and Omega, the dreamer and the dream; I'm all that you expect, yet nothing that I seem. (Wow, I think I actually felt the cholesterol spike from all that cheese.) See more art and imagined profundity at: http://www.shokxonestudios.com
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I shot the sheriff AND the deputy. But I deny having shot that man in Reno just to watch him die; dude was lookin' at me funny.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Good reading and movies, unhealthy foods, fine (and even not so fine) art in all forms, and the energy rush of working on a new project.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I was very much into superheroes, but I'd also indulge in random drawings of childhood favorite movies - Star Trek, The Rocketeer, Dick Tracy, Back to the Future, even the 1943 version of Phantom of the Opera with Claude Rains (one of these things is not like the others).
What is your favorite thing about electronic music?
While I'm firmly a classic rock man, sometimes I just can't resist a big thumping, head-bobbing beat.
Record vs. MP3: which would win the battle?
I love MP3's for the ability to pick and choose favorite tracks at will, but more often I opt for hardcopy media over digital files.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
My favorite shirt is a gray Beatles hoodie I got for my birthday a few years ago. Not just a tribute to a classic band, but a general "everyday comfort shirt" - the shirt I wear that says "Home sweet home".
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Movies, with books a close second. Both fuel the imagination in different ways, but as a leisure activity, I go for movies first. Gun to my head and had to pick a favorite film of all time? The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly.
What inspires your work?
Pop culture, and more pop culture. I think a whole section of my brain is kept fully active for storing inconsequential film trivia.
Any shout outs?
Joseph Kosinski for directing one of my favorite movies of 2010; Olivia Wilde for looking amazing in glowing spandex (and just in general); Jeff Bridges for being Jeff Bridges; the TeeFury crew for offering the spotlight; the friends and family who knew I'd get it someday; and the awesome schmoes and schmoe-ettes of Movie Fan Central.
