About the artist
Words from jimiyo:
Doomdrips dropped me this dapper design one day, and I liked it. It reminds me of native indian art with a twist. It's a simple attractive design, yet I find it difficult to explain why it's so alluring. It's just got IT, like Kelly Clarkson, but much, much better.
Tell us about this design:
The design was inspired by the party held at the Trinity Site on July 16, 1945 in New Mexico.
Oh, and is part of our (Aesthetic Apparatus) ongoing "Doomdrips" art series.
Tell us about yourself:
After school the men of Aesthetic Apparatus were a chief advisors to the newly created United States Atomic Energy Commission and used that position to lobby for international control of atomic energy and to avert the nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union. After provoking the ire of many politicians with their outspoken political opinions during the Red Scare, they had their security clearance revoked in a much-publicized and politicized hearing. Though stripped of their direct political influence Aesthetic Apparatus continued to flourish in the commercial art field and drink beer.
"Self-plagiarism is style." (Alfred Hitchcock)
Are there any ongoing art projects you would like to promote?
We're commercial artists and, you know, we're always looking for new projects. So, in that manner our entire history of work is what we're always promoting.

Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years with your art career or other?
Hopefully we're still doing exactly what we want to do. We've been fortunate enough to run Aesthetic Apparatus for over 6 years working with great clients and doing our own thing as well.
You win a million dollars. How would you spend or invest it?
Ponies for the poor.
