About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
I love the imagery of Alice in Wonderland- it's so full of ordinary objects that transform into something fantastic. The caterpillar is the best of the bunch, because his characterization in the story influences how you begin to view the real animals. Suddenly, that slow, wavy walk they do is put in a different light...
Tell us the background of this design.
well, it's obviously inspired by Alice in Wonderland (to a degree) though it was more directly inspired by the song White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane " Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar has given you the call". he has always been my favorite character.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
very little. it adds to the mystique of my online persona.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
i'm a 47ish year old guy who lives in a small town in Florida, works in a local screenprinting business as the staff artist. i'm married, and i like coffee ice cream and mt. dew floats.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, Brown paper packages tied up with strings... oh wait, you mean MY favorite things.. um, well.. movies, reading (anything from burger wrappers to Shakespeare), comic books, way too much television, my wife, rain... the list goes on.
What are your feelings on the lottery?
i'm for it, if only they'd let me win now and then.
Do you prefer gluttony, sloth, or lust?
well.. if i have to pick one i'd say lust with gluttony running a close second.. we're talking a photo finish here.. but if i had to pick one.. lust, yeah.. definitely lust.. for sure.. no question.
Coke vs. Pepsi: which would win the battle?
i don't drink either so i don't really have an opinion about that, but i don't think either would do that well without opposable thumbs. or hands for that matter.. not to mention brains.. unless they're being used as weapons.. then i think Coke might have an advantage because it's really really bad for you..
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
wow.. so many to choose from.. right now it's a Dallas Stars jersey my grandson gave me for Christmas. i'm a big fan of the team and we can't watch the games here in Florida so it's a reminder of both him and the Big D.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
i'm going to go with movies.. my favorite being a toss up between Night of the Comet, Dawn of the Dead (the original), and Casablanca. there are a lot of other contenders and it changes depending on my mood but those three i can watch any time.. repeatedly, and not get bored with.
What inspires your work?
man, so many tough questions.. life, i guess.. i like themes, themes are good and helpful for inspiration.
Any shout outs?
my wife, my fellow artists (you know who you are), MJ for liking this design enough to recommend it, any fans known and unknown who vote for and/or buy my designs, my parents and baby brother, my kids and their kids. i love you all!
