About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
Is there anything cooler than a mystical lion? I submit that there is not. The king of the jungle, rocking a third eye, would truly be the master of all of nature. Strength. Leadership. And oh yeah, crazy psychic powers. The ultimate creature.
Tell us the background of this design.
When I'm drawing I just let go my mind. My main references are Japanese design, Barrocco style and Nature. This design is a mix of those elements, as you can see, the third eye symbolises a sort of spirituality. It was also a way to draw my favorite animal. The lion is, of course, the king, that's why it is surendered by flowers which are the symbol of Royalty in Europe. This tee talks about pride and Ego... :)
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I only draw again since a bit more than one year. I used to own antiques Shop during seven years but I sold out everything to recover my first passion: drawing... And try to become an illustrator. :)
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
Too much to declare. For example: I'm just seven years and I am a genius. (jooooke)
Name a few of your favorite things.
Antiques, grafic design, drawing, painting, fashion things and Manga (since I have 14)...
Do you prefer the idea of river rafting, hot air balloons, or dirt bike racing?
hum... "river rafting" (funny questions) ^^
Peanut butter vs. chocolate: which would win the battle?
Peanut butter?? Never heard about it (because I'm french as you know) I'm definitly a chocolate addict hé! hé! :D
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
A tee that I just maked with birds and nice colors, intituled "Beyond the cages", because I love animals and we depend of them. It's my last tee, I'm always wearing it. I have a lot of tee, too much you know...
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Probably watching movies, the last I loved was a french movie. Title: "Le premier jour du reste de ta vie", it talks about family things, time, life... Very intense, hard but wonderful... I'm always crying when I'm watching it. (T v T)
What inspires your work?
A lot of things, as I said, Nature, Japanese pictures, Fashion, cute things, everything around me, sad music sometimes... I just let go my mind and try to draw with my feelings...
Any shout outs?
I wanna taste peanut butter, just once, in american movies everybody seems to appreciate it... I want to try it. : So sorry for my english, it sucks I know. I Just want to thank Jimiyo for everything, a very gentle and talented person, I'm very found of his designs and his style, I will buy a tee of him, sure.
