About the artistArt curated by
A word from Wotto:
I love this design. The placement, the clever detail and the striking colour scheme all make this a winner. Artulo is a gentleman and I like what he does. Considering he states below he is new to design I think this is a brilliant piece of work. Look out! Moth Attack master Artulo is in the house.
Tell us a little about this design.
I've always had a fascination with insects and this one combines microscopic elements into a macroscopic piece - the Death's-head Hawkmoth, acherontia lachesis.
Where in the world are you?
Madison, WI, USA
What is your favourite medium?
Digital formats (illustrator, specifically) because it seems more "forgiving" to me than pencil/pen and I make way too many mistakes to use the latter. The smoothing tool is my great friend, that way nobody knows i've had six cups of coffee before 8am.
Which superhero power would you like the most and why?
Nigh-invulnerability! Who wouldn't want to be able to survive being thrown off a 30-story building and smashing into the concrete below? Super strength and drama powers are not far behind.
Who is the best villain ever?
There are so many awesome villains, but I really like Agent Smith from the Matrix movies.
What was the last song you listened to?
Ball Tongue - Korn
Gimme some sugar, Baby. - Ash
Who has been the best client you have designed for?
Since I'm relatively new at design, I haven't really had outside clients ask me to make something for them. But, my daughter wanted a ballet themed shirt, so I made her one (pic). She's definitely my best client. Yes, it's an inkjet iron on transfer but has held up pretty well through many washings.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
There are so many fantastic artists whose work I admire, but my most absolute favorite, and who I'd leap at the chance to work with would be Si Scott. (hey, I can dream, right?)
How many t-shirts do you own?
Quite a few - probably 40 or so. But this is really only hindered by what I'd actually wear.
Which website do you go to everyday?
I have a daily ritual of shirt websites that I visit, including Design by Humans, Emptees, Shirt.woot, and of course TeeFury. But, I'm also a daily reader of Engadget, The Register, and other tech sites.
