About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
Sometimes the best combinations in life are the ones you never anticipated. Like casting Adam Sandler in a drama- it sounds like a dangerous idea, but once you've given it a try, it rules. Call me a dreamer, but I think that mod style and the undead might just be the next chocolate and peanut butter.
Tell us the background of this design.
I thought it’d be fun to mash together 60’s mod beatnik culture with flesh eating zombies.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I can play “Hungry Like the Wolf” on ukulele.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
When I was a kid, I wanted to be Ziggy when I grew up.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Swedish fish, bowling, and brown paper packages tied up with strings.
What are your feelings on stovepipe hats?
That’s a tough look to pull off but if ya got it flaunt it. I was always partial to porkpie hats, nothing beats hats, pork and pie!
What is your favorite breakfast cereal?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cereal, which was sugar coated chex with marshmallows, but they stopped making it and then brought it back as Spiderman cereal, but they stopped making that too. Alas, when will they bring it back!
Sumo wrestler vs. an enterprising youngster with a slingshot: who would win the battle?
My money’s on the kid, you should never under estimate an enterprising youngster.

My Pixies shirt, reminds me of one the best concerts I’ve seen.
