About the artist
A word from wotto: As an Englishman, anything Shakespeare rocks my boat. Growing up not far from the geniuses house I was exposed to his work a lot in my early life. This T-shirt is subtle but anyone familiar with the writer's work will nod in agreement instantly on seeing it. Let's celebrate St Valentine's Day with a design that pays homage to a man who really knew about romance.
Tell us a little about this design.
- I wanted to experiment with illustration and type using Illustrator. I also always thought that Shakespeare's plays were a good source of inspiration, so that is why I dug into Romeo and Juliet for this design.
Where in the world are you?
-I'm in a town full of signs that I can't read. Where the 57 and 60 freeways meet in California.
What is your favourite medium?
-I really only work in my sketchbook and on my computer most of the time. If I were good at watercolor, I bet I would love it.
Which superhero power would you like the most and why?
-Dr. Manhattan! He can do anything… ANYTHING!!!!
Who is the best villain ever?
-Would it be cliché to say The Joker? If so, then I like Syndrome.
What was the last song you listened to?
-I don't remember… But I'm going to say Weezer – The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.
-"Give me back my f$%^ing drum sticks... please."
Who has been the best client you have designed for?
-Anyone that has purchased a design from me has been great, really. But if I had to choose one, I would say dude for Shifted Image has been the best. Totally cool guy.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
-There are a ton of people I would love to colab with, but preferably someone with a style that is very different from mine. I hope to do a colab sometime with my good friend Ivan Mendoza. Google him!
How many t-shirts do you own?
-I own enough shirts that I actually wear to last me everyday for 1 month. My goal is to reach a supply of shirts that I can wear everyday for 2 months.
Which website do you go to everyday?
-First thing I do when I turn on my computer is check my gmail, then emptees. I leave both of those tabs open while I browse other sites that I don't care that much about.
Want to promote a website/someone/yourself?
