About the artistArt curated by
A word from wotto: As a House fan this tee is a must have. That aside I must also comment on how talented Olechka is. This drawing is flawless and so well executed. Fast becoming the T-shirt designer's favourite, let's here it for Olechka.
You have skills, how did you acquire them?
Years of practice: I’ve been drawing since I were a kid.
So tell us how you developed this T-shirt design, what was the starting point?
House is my hero. I drew a portrait of him using graphite pencils, with a little dermatological twist. There was a brief period when I was drawing veins and scar tissue on everything. I scanned the drawing, and added the rest using photoshop. If you watch the show, you know that it’s never lupus!
Which T-shirt do you wear the most?
Currently I can’t get enough of my “Big Willie” shirt; the Willie Nelson tee that I bought from TeeFury.
Name one artist you think is underrated?
I don’t know this guy’s real name, but his art gallery takes my breath away! http://seyk.deviantart.com/
Star Wars or Star Trek?
Don’t know the difference: never watched an episode of either.
Which 5 famous people would you like to have dinner with (dead or alive)?
Salvador Dali, Anatoly Kashpirovsky, Nostradamus, Sigmund Freud, Robin Williams.
What book would you suggest for people to read?
I like interesting/funny books. One of my faves: “Why Do Men Have Nipples? Hundreds of Questions You'd Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Martini” by Mark Leyner and Billy Goldberg.
Who has been the best client you have designed for?
Nobody yet. Aside from TF, I’ve had 2 designs printed at Uneetee.
What plans do you have for 2009?
Get more sleep, pay off student loans, buy a Cintiq tablet.
What animal would you be re-incarnated as and why?
Black panther. I’d enjoy life as a wild feline.
Who’s portfolio website do you envy?
Michael Zancan. http://www.zancan.fr/
