Piranha Still Life
About the artist
A word from the curator:
A lot of people will try to tell you that video games aren't art. But anyone who has played a truly great game, the kind so slick it changes the way you see the world around you, knows better.

Tell us the background of this design.
I originally came up with this for a contest that required the design to reference a video game in a historical art style. So I thought if Van Gogh ever got to play Super Mario Bros. 3, he would have probably painted something like this.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
When I was a kid I wanted to be an artist, but as I got older I got burnt out. I ended up being a computer programmer instead (which I still am), and it's only in the past couple years that I started drawing again. Introduction to the tee shirt world last year is what finally gave me the incentive to draw on a regular basis.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I'm a cylon.
Name a few of your favorite things.
The color blue, hydrangeas, ramen noodles, margaritas, and Dance Dance Revolution.
What are your feelings on evolution?
It would be really cool if one day, humans could fly.
Do you prefer the 60s, the 70s, or the 80s?
I actually like the 40s better than all three. Rich with history, great music, and lovely fashion styles.
Paul Bunyan vs. Davy Crockett: who would win the battle?
Paul Bunyan had Babe, so I think he would win.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Right now it's probably jecrt's Avian Crown. I like it's repetitive pattern, the pen and ink style and especially the little bird nest in the middle.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
I adore all three, but watching movies is the one that I do more consistently, so I guess I should say that. My favorite movie is When Harry Met Sally.
What inspires your work?
Various things. I love animals, so many times I try to incorporate them. At times I'm inspired by other artists. However, a lot of times it's just a random thought.
Any shout outs?
My husband and best friend John, MJ for liking my design, and SailorButterfly for being such an awesome supporter and friend. She introduced me to Tee Fury.
