About the artistArt curated by
Words from jimiyo:
Originally this design was on white, but I know how you Teefurries hate white shirts. We played around with the colors, and I gotta say, these color combinations are Boss like Bruce Springstein. I know there are those out there that have an affinity for all things asian. Anime, asian food, etcetera. So get one, you know it's Kakkoii!
You recently had an serious accident where you sustained major injuries. Did it affect you at all, make you ponder life deeper, or anything of that sort?
Yes, yes and yes. It affected my haircut pretty bad. I do ponder life deeper, and it also gave me the chance to see how many great people willing to help you can still find in this world (thank you all!). Also, it gave me a month of medical leave, and then i decided i don't want to continue with my 9-5 job that was slowly eating my ambition/energy/motivation etc....instead, i'm going to do art full-time, for as long as the money i have saved allow me to do so.
What do you want to accomplish this year?
I want to be able to finish my masters program, i want to get a job as a teacher (in the autumn) and i really want to improve my art both quality and quantity-wise. Also, i want to become a better son, a better boyfriend (..maybe more?) and a better friend to all the people i love and deserve my affection. Yes, that includes web-friends too.
What do you like to do for fun?
I fancy playing games, reading, and...you know. This answer is boring, it's like i'm listing my hobbies for a CV. Basically, i do all the usual stuff and yes, i get an extra-kick from drawing, especially if someone likes my work. Yes, i want a statue of me holding a pen...silver, if possible. That would rock. Never mind the last part of my answer, that's from my "conquer the world one drawing at a time" plan...top secret stuff:)
Any ongoing art projects?
Yes. I am planning a series of colaborations with artists who are willing to get their work butchered by my modest (yet improving) skills. I am also going to write a lot more in the T-shirt Factory Blog (that counts, right?) and basically, i want to pop at least 3 designs/week and be everywhere so people go like: Him again? he's good, but damn, he's everywhere! Oh, you said ongoing...well, never mind that:)
Anything you want to say, anything goes except vulgar stuff, unless it about the show The Fringe or Fox News.
I need your support, now that i decided to give full-time freelancing a chance. I am still a modest guy, so my prices are really good. you should work with me before it gets to my head and i up my rates...
Also, thanks TeeFury for this second chance here! Third time's a charm though...
