The Key Lies in You
About the artistArt curated by
A word from wotto:
Erin, (yes! another female designer) has a beautiful style. I like the hand drawn look of this and the thought provoking/inspiring theme behind it. Please give Erin a warm Teefury welcome.
Tell us a little about this design.
When you're troubled, don't shut yourself out from the rest of the world and the people around you. Talk to someone, connect with someone. It takes courage but you will see things in a different perspective. Most of the time, you are your own enemy. The answer always lies in you, it's not that difficult to find the key. That's the message I wanted to depict in this illustration.
Wear this shirt on a bad day as a positive reminder. :P
Where in the world are you?
I've just arrived in Bangkok less than an hour ago. But I live mostly in Malaysia.
What is your favourite medium?
I used to love working with pastel and charcoal during art college days but now I'm working mostly with digital media. Still, I don't go anywhere without a black ink pen for doodles.
Which superhero power would you like the most and why?
Is Doraemon a superhero? For me he is. I'd like to have his magical 4-dimensional pouch. If anyone needs help, I can just put my hand in it and grab a useful gadget from the pouch. I also wouldn't mind having his helicopter headband so I can save all the travel airfares and fly since I travel too often.
Who is the best villain ever?
Severus Snape! He's so good he fooled Voldemort. But then he's not really a villain...right?
What was the last song you listened to?
Err...someone's singing a Hindi song right now on tv...
"I think there's some connection between absolute discipline and absolute freedom." - Alan Rickman
Who has been the best client you have designed for?
I designed my best friend's wedding invitation card and that meant a lot to me because I wasn't able to make it home for her wedding. She trusted me and allowed me a lot of freedom to create it.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
At this point, anyone! I'd love to draw for charity too.
How many t-shirts do you own?
I stopped counting. I live in a tropical country so I basically wear t-shirts almost everyday.
Which website do you go to everyday?
Gmail/Yahoo for my emails, Google, TeeFury.com, www.deviantart.com
Want to promote a website/someone/yourself?
Yeah! I did mostly children's illustration and am in the process of illustrating my own children's book. It's only fairly recently that I found out about tee-designing. I'm just so slow to notice this! And I said I wear t-shirts everyday?! It's simply amazing to be able to draw and wear art. I'd really love to focus on this right now. Having said that, would anyone be so kind to vote and comment on this? --> http://www.chimpogo.com/design/1312/elusive-bunny
