About the artistArt curated by
A word from wotto: Josh has had a lot of success on the T-shirt design circuit. It won't be a surprise to hear that he also designs skatebords and has created artwork for comics. Hugely talented and an all round good guy, thanks Josh your always welcome at my Teefury door.
1. Tell us a little about this design.
I love to sketch, and at some point fell in love with doing designs that overlap and show the six degrees of separation in city scenes. All of these are hand drawn from life. Somehow, the collision of all of these images makes a lovely abstraction which, I feel, reflects our lives, and the vibrance of cityscapes.
2. Where in the world are you?
I'm located in Portland, Oregon in the USA
3. What is your favourite medium?
Pen and ink, and photoshop
4. Which superhero power would you like the most and why?
I'd like the power to not need sleep. If that could happen I could make so much artwork, and my graphic novel would already be finished!
5. Who is the best villain ever?
Good question! Hmm... I'd have to say the Joker.
6. What was the last song you listened to?
"While You Were Sleeping" by Elvis Perkins
7. Favourite quote/lyric?
"...Life is but a walking shadow... It is a poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more..."
8. Who has been the best client you have designed for?
It's hard to pick only one, so I'll split it into a few
comics: random house
illustrations: weldon owen
9. who would you most like to collaborate with?
Chris Ware would be sick... Either that or Chip Kidd
10. How many t-shirts do you own?
To many. One of the best payments from doing shirt design is the free products.
