Monster Coat of Arms
About the artistArt curated by
Word from jimiyo:
I'm smitten with missmonster and her art. Just read this, "I'm tall and I have a pink mohawk and I love knives, animals and green tea." Swoon. LOL.
About the shirt: It's rock solid. The art is as compelling as missmonster herself. Red on Black for the win, I mean FTW. This will be my 3rd missmonster shirt!
Tell us about yourself:
I am a Texan living in the midwest and freezing my butt off currently. I am a freelancer artist that has worked many different odd jobs such as a prototype shop assistant, cocktail waitress at a snooty wine bar, an educator at a children's zoo program and an illustration teacher at a community college. Oh yeah i worked on an animated movie too! Now I get to paint and draw monsters all day long and I'm happy as a fanged, horned clam. Also I'm tall and I have a pink mohawk and I love knives, animals and green tea.
Are there any ongoing art projects you would like to promote?
Yes! First Iam always open to commissions! I'd also love to promote my online shop here: http://missmonster.bigcartel.com/ and maybe tell people about a toy design I did here: http://www.patchtogether.com/?Designs_Details&Id=878 If it gets enough votes, it will be made into an actual product!
Besides that i will be in two art shows in February...one at http://www.aokayofficial.com/ and another at http://www.revolutiontattoo.net/ Go check it out if you will be in the Chicago area! There's other stuff but i don't want to throw too much stuff at people. I always update with events here: http://missmonster.deviantart.com/
In a battle between a Cheetah furry, and a Wolf furry, which one would win and why?
Dammit, Jimiyo. I'd have to say a wolf furry just because I'd expect a humanoid wolf to be a ton stronger. Cheetahs are pretty lightly built. Their claws aren't all that sharp since they are used more for traction than for clinging on to prey so it would come down to bite power,strength and endurance. Even if the cheetah used it's speed and ran away, they don't last long...the wolf would catch up since they can run forever and could finish the cheetah off while it is exhausted. I think they are similarly sized as far as weight goes so maybe im wrong, maybe a cheetah could beat him up. But in the wild they aren't really fighters while wolves kind of are...wolves are tougher. But since we are talking about humanized animal creatures it might just come down to whoever has a gun or who is more experienced with fighting just like with people. Oh god i just showed what a total geek I am here...
Do you have any weird stories about any fanboy/girl besides that one time you found me outside your window, or did you see me, I couldn't tell?
I totally saw you. Nice gold sparkly tights, broseph! But yeah once time at a convention this chick like FLIPPED out hard that i was there. Like yelled my name really loud .It was cute and I'll admit felt great... but I felt so undeserving of that reaction. I'm just some nerd that paints too much. Then at another con I was at my table wearing a Scott Pilgrim Sex-Bob-om shirt ( a fictional band, a pun on the Super Mario baddie). This weird dude walked up and made some dorky quip about how my stuff looked like Pokemon...then there was this 30 second pause of him staring at me. Then he looks at my shirt and looks at me and says "yeah that shirt is correct!" ( he read it as Sex Bomb and didnt' get the reference i guess) I didn't say a word and just looked at him.Then he stared at me for another 30 seconds. When he left I and the girls that were sitting with me at my table all burst into laughter at the same time. Then he walked by with his wife/GF a few minutes later and didn't look at us...I have MANY more stories but I'll quit while I'm ahead...
Yeah, i have two half sleeves! I started with the Thundercats symbol 9 years ago ( shut up it's awesome) which follows into an Okami piece from the amazing video game of the same name. I have two foo dog designs ( one drawn by me, one drawn by Chris Goodwin) which have a big snake underneath them. Then i have a monster eye on my wrist. My big toes are tattoed with blue lines and look really silly. I'd like to go full sleeve and i have plans..but i need to save a little first. Maybe this summer....
Yeah!! I'd like to thank every single person that has ever voted on a design, bought art from me, published my stuff, let me in their gallery or were ever supportive of what I do. I want to thank people that showed me how to work with different mediums or answered my questions or critiqued something i made. I could NOT do this without your help.
