Go, Ideas, Go!
About the artist
A word from the curator:
Where do ideas come from? For me at least, they always seem to come unexpectedly in a sudden, confused rush of energy. But somewhere in that seething mass is a gem of a concept, it just takes a bit of sorting to find the right one...
Tell us the background of this design.
Well this draw came to me when I was looking for new ideas for the tee. I tried too hard but I didn’t succeed. So the idea came with the lack of ideas, something like the fantastic world of the creative thought.

Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
My favorite shirt is the one named “perigo” aka danger. I like it cause I did myself and I like ninjas in dangerous situations. I also like it because It was a big challenge to me do the smoke effects in vector. You can see it here http://www.flickr.com/photos/silvio_pequeno/3200522388/sizes/o/
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Movies!!! My favorites are The Unbearable Lightness of Being, the notorious Bettie page, the wizard of Oz, Blindness, Abre los ojos, old boy, goodfellas, taxidriver, Tekkonkinkreet, clockwork orange, Ferris buller days off.
What inspires your work?
Absolutely everything. I observe everything around me I see a lot of arts, I do researchs, from old school hip hop, to confused ninjas. But my biggest inspirations come from the music.
