About the artistArt curated by
Words from jimiyo:
I love this aesthetic. For some reason it seems to project an air of happiness, and postive karma. Wouldn't you agree? Also, although my personal artwork doesn't reflect it, Simplicity in art does have great appeal. Add another to my wardrobe!
Tell us about this design.
This design started with a pattern and then ended up celebrating the luscious curves of the ampersand.
Tell us about yourself.
I'm a goofy kid and an all around nice guy. In January I married my childhood sweetheart and moved to Austin. If I'm not drawing, scanning, or gazing into my computer screen you can find me playing Wii or riding bicycles with my young bride.
Can you give us an overview of your tools/computer/equipment?
I'm working with sharpie pens, whatever pencil I find, and a 15" MacBook Pro outfitted with a legal copy of CS4! I also enjoy using watercolor, gouache, and collage.
Who/What has been your most interesting client/art job?
Dent May has been really fun to work with. We're both young and new to our scenes. I created his sleeve artwork for his debut album on Paw Tracks (Animal Collective's label). When working on the artwork we were both in Mississippi indulging ourselves with culture via cyberspace. It's been really interesting watching him take off.
Mad Max, Terminator, Aliens, Predator, and Darth Vader? Who is the victorious one?
Well, Aliens & Predator would probably kill each other off and Terminator would get caught up in politics eliminating those three. When you get down to it Mad Max is really Mel Gibson who yes was Brave, but also waxed his legs and wore panty hose. In the end, Darth Vader wins out solely because of the force. C'mon, it's the FORCE! So rad.
