Tell us a bit about this design.
I have not seen a shirt on Teefury that is based on Kubrick's classic film 2001 so I thought it would be something good to try.
Where are you from?
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I am an Animator, Graphic Designer, and now a T-shirt Designer. Although I am only 21 I tend to be more interested in things that were around before I was born.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I'm much better at drawing on the computer than I am at drawing with pencil and paper. The undo button is my most frequently used drawing tool.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Cartoons, Super Nintendo games, Alternative 80's music, Cheesy Horror movies, Playing Instruments, Old comic books, Designing T-Shirts, Superheros, Super Villains, Anti-heros, Giant Robots, Monsters, Creatures, and Aliens
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
As a little kid I drew lots of knights and dragons and dinosaurs, In grade school I went through a phase where I drew nothing but “Kirby” and the “Gorillaz”. When I got to middle school I liked to draw my own macabre cartoons and see how much blood I could get away with drawing in my art classes.
What is your favorite thing about cats?
Cat's are independent, they like to do their own thing. They don't follow you around the house trying to get you to pet them. Instead they make you follow them around the house trying to pet them.
Space travel vs. time travel: which would win the battle?
Definitely Space travel, if BTTF has taught us anything it is that time travel causes nothing but problems, you could wind up getting hit on by your mother and finding out your dad is a wimp. Space travel gives us the potential to live in a Star Wars like universe.... that, or we'll just find a bunch of different types of dirt.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
This is going to sound terribly vain but my favorite shirt I own is “Saturday Morning Eraserhead” a shirt I designed and bought for my self on redbubble. It's my favorite because there are not nearly enough shirts based on “Eraserhead” and as bizarre as the movie is, it's one of the most interesting and intriguing movies I have ever seen.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
They are all great, I watch movies more than anything else though. Some of my favorites are The Great Mouse Detective, Star Wars, Blade Runner, Batman Returns, Beetlejuice, Akira, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. My Favorite book is “The Phantom Tollbooth” and my favorite video game is “Earthbound”
What inspires your work?
It could be anything, I usually get inspiration at the worst possible time and then I end up thinking about it all day and planning it out until I get the chance to get to my computer.
Any shout outs?
My friends and family, and my beautiful girlfriend... Lizzy.
My fellow T-shirt designer Friends,
and all of you who are cool enough to buy my T-shirt
