A word from the curator
Change isn't always for the better, as this design indicates. It's a good principle to always bear in mind the costs of advancement, and how history might look upon the change. But a clash of attitudes is always interesting, regardless of which side you fall in with, and this shirt is both beautiful and thought-provoking.
Tell us the background of this design.
I saw this antique b&w photo of some fancy people sitting at their beach estate and looking out over the ocean. Their house was quite a ways back from the coast, but at the time nothing was there and they could see the beach in the distance. Well if you were in that same spot now your view would be a lot different. Traffic, city streets, condos built right up to the water line, all that stuff... You wouldn't even be able to see the ocean past it all. I lived not too far from that spot, right across the street from the beach, and I couldn't see the waves from there. It made me wonder what those people would think if they came back and saw how the landscape has changed. The coast as they knew it has vanished.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
That I really appreciate all the support and comments. It's great talking to other people who are into the same kinds of things and hearing their take on it. I'm always interested in constructive feedback.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
My phone number.
Name a few of your favorite things.
A glass of scotch and a nice pair of slacks.
What are your feelings on centaurs?
Why? Are they becoming a problem?
What is your favorite artistic style?
Probably surrealism because I love the flow that so much of it has. But it's hard to put one style over another. I'd hate to be without any of them. Sometimes a nice pencil sketch can be as powerful as anything and that's what I like to do. I don't have the patience for painting.
Plaid vs. houndstooth vs. herringbone- which pattern reigns supreme?
Plaid is the best and everyone knows it. Thats why they made so many different kinds. Glen plaid, madras, tartan... How many different houndstooths can you name?
Which author would you most like to meet, and why?
Anton Chekhov, because of all the Russian writers he had the best sense of humor.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
This is a tough one, but I'll just say that although I'm not a huge gamer I loved, loved, loved BioShock. It was probably the most amazing thing I've ever seen on the screen and it gave me tons of inspiration.
What inspires your work?
Nature, especially the ocean. I'm always thinking about the colors and lines of it when I'm creating things.
Any shout outs?
Just to my friends, particularly the ones I don't get to see very often because they live somewhere else.
