About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
When I was a kid and saw it on TV, I would demand my parents to record the movie. Apparently, I did not know you could buy movies on VHS. It is my favorite 80’s movie – there is martial arts, Asian guys wearing big hats, dudes controlling electricity and an old man in white make-up. How can any child not be entertained? I took my favorite parts of the movie and gave it a modern aesthetic.
Where are you from?
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I cried when Mufasa died in the Lion King.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I cried when the turtles had the vision of Splinter in the camp fire in TMNT1.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Beer, art, donuts. And my favorite show in the world is Lost. If you talk to me about Lost, you instantly become my best friend.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I drew a lot of robots but didn’t know how to give them strong, muscular arms. I resolved this issue by drawing interconnecting chains. So I drew robots with chain-like arms and no one knew what the heck I was drawing.
What is your favorite thing about time travel?
I love it! I streamed so many time-travel movies on Netflix that it became a recommended genre for me.
Little China vs. Little Italy: which would win the battle?
Little China in the house, player.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
My favorite shirt from teefury is the 8-bit NES systems and controllers. It gives me street cred with the nerds.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Watching movies. Most acquaintances think my favorite movie of all time is Fight Club but my close friends know it is Mission Impossible 3. Now, a lot of teefury folks will also know that too.
What inspires your work?
Good design and graphic shapes.
Any shout outs?
To my mom and dad, thank you for making me. To Nino, thanks for the support. To Rick, thanks for the jokes.
