Tell us a bit about this design.
First, I want to say; thank you TeeFury, for this opportunity, it’s an honor. This design came to my mind, one day that I was playing the classic FF7, then later, I watched an episode of this cartoon and I thought, Why not combine both? It would fit perfectly for a fun design.
Where are you from?
I'm from Costa Rica, I´m a student and freelance designer
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I am a young artist with a lot of motivation to create new and crazy things. I love what I do, in my designs, I try to be as meticulous as possible in every work I do, and I love to add new and cool details in each one of them. I am very hardworking, totally crazy and I have a different view of the world. I love art, reading, video games, nature and all that is bizarre, and I want my work to be known around the world because I’m from a small country where the design is not very well appreciated.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I think I have nothing to hide, I project my personality a lot in my work, I communicate as much as I am.
Name a few of your favorite things.
I love to draw, working as a designer, reading, hanging out with my friends, watch movies, video games and anything related to geek stuff
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
Thanks to my parents, since my childhood I raided the art world with different artistic activities and studies like drawing and painting, but my passion was drawing characters based in video games, comics, etc. Maybe because of my young age, I got bored of painting ¨still life¨ and ¨landscapes¨ but I thank those painting lessons, because they were very important resource in my life, and I got great knowledge that prompted me to continue drawing.
What is your favorite thing about cartoons?
What I love from cartoons, are the wonderful and unique worlds were they exist, I am passionate of characters background, they are very interesting and I have a lot of respect to everyone working behind their creation, I love a cartoon´s creativity and humor, these days cartoons are becoming more bizarre and I like it, but I miss also the classic old-school cartoons. One of my dreams is to study animation and work in an animation studio.
Technology vs. magic: which would win the battle?
I love technology, but I believe that magic is more powerful, against technology it would totally destroy it and make technology unusable, magic has the power to transform, to destroy, to protect, also combine certain elements of nature, I’m not saying that technology cannot do it, but it has factors that could not be reached.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
My favorite shirt is the greatest job I've done, the one that earned more merit, is my favorite work ¨God Owl of Dreams ¨ I worked hard on it and had a lot of detail, many months of effort because I only used “Pen Tool”.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Difficult question, I like them all, I think my favorite could be gaming because I started playing when I was a little child, my favorite is the Metal Gear saga ¨ and ¨ Half-life¨, if we talk about movies, I'm a big fan of ¨Star Wars¨
What inspires your work?
Another really great artists around the world , video games, music, books, movies, concept art etc...
Any shout outs?
I want to say thank you again, TeeFury and anyone who buys this shirt, for this great opportunity. I want to thank also my teachers and everyone who supported me and appreciate what I do, for all the people who put a smile in my face every day, they are my inspiration to continue, develop and improve.
