About the artist
Word from jimiyo:
As curator, sometimes I get to abuse my power and print things I want with total disregard to it's potential marketability, but fortunately I know I am not the only Cat lover in the world. We are an army millions strong.
Tell us about this design.
I figure, if a cuddwy widdow kiddy with two eyes is cute, then a cuddwy widdow kiddy with seven eyes is 250% cuter.
Tell us about yourself.
I'd like that one where you have a hot side and a cold side, so the lettuce doesn't get all gross and wilty before you get a chance to eat it. What's that one called, McDLT? Yeah, that. With fries and an orange drink, please. Oh, and a box of cookies, too.
Can you give us an overview of your tools/computer/equipment?
I have a crappy tablet that's about the size of a post-it note, but it's not so bad that it is so small because I always lose the stylus, so I can't use the tablet anyway.
I do my designing on Photoshop. I should learn how to use Illustrator better, but I'm afraid that learning new things pushes old ones out, and I can't bear to lose anything I already know. I mean, what would I have said for that "about me" thing up there if I had learned Illustrator and in the process pushed out my knowledge of failed mid 1980's fast-food hamburgers, huh? Tell me that, smart guy.
Are there any ongoing art projects you would like to promote?
I took a Polaroid each day for more than 2,000 consecutive days, but I quit last July. I guess I am sort of between ongoing art projects? My website, dirtdirt.com, has been ongoing for more than ten years, though, and there's new stuff there pretty regularly.
Mad Max, Terminator, Aliens, Predator, and Darth Vader? Who is the victorious one?
Come on. Aliens. No question. I mean, ONE Alien could probably take any of those punks, except maybe the Terminator (it's what he does; it's ALL he does), but Aliens, plural? Shoot. Looks like we are all out of bubblegum.
Any shout outs?
My wife, Erin, and my son, Milo, who despite having just four eyes divided evenly amongst them, are terribly cute.
