Words from jimiyo: Can you believe some of the incredibly talented artists we have been attracting lately! Scroll down, peep Raz's illustration work!
Tell us about this design. After binging on classic Japanese monster flicks and beer, a flash of brilliance. Inspired by the daikaiju concept and a restless nights sleep I woke up in the wee hours of the night and quickly jotted down a quick drunken sketch of the idea. Then after some work and rework and then more rework (with some help from the folks here) Finally got the concept where I wanted and them BAM! You got a destructive bird beast adorning your chest. A thought just popped into my head..can you image the size of the bird poop. It must be huge!
Tell us about yourself. I could bore you with all the wondrous details of how good I am at drawing and designing, a fan of music and classic horror flicks. But let me amuse you with a brief horrifying yet still entertaining anecdote about my childhood. My little brother (who at the time was in the 1st grade) and myself (being in the 3rd grade at the time) had these oh so cute little rabbits. Mine was a large puffy brown and white rabbit and my brothers a nice soft gray rabbit. Names of the rabbits are unimportant, mostly because I can't remember them. We cared for these rabbits, feeding them everyday lettuce and carrots running around playfully in our backyard. Though these rabbits were a bit of a nuisance to my mom since they kept eating her flowers. This kept going on for a few weeks till my mom just got fed up and gave the rabbits to our neighbors. Coming back from school, tossing our backpacks into the living room running and eagerly ran to the back yard to find our little rabbit buddies were gone. We confronted our mom about this and she admitted to having given our pets to our neighbor, though she assured us that they would be well taken care of. Nest day our neighbor came by with a nice little peace offering (I'm guessing that My mom had some words with our neighbor regarding our concerns). He brought some soft tortilla chicken tacos. So we sat down and feasted. really good tasty tacos I can still taste that sweet tangy flavor. Well into our 3rd and 4th taco my mom saw it fit to let us in on a little surprise. (some of might of saw this coming already) Chicken wasn't chicken but rabbit, our rabbits. Once the little secret was out of the bag my little brother cry, scream then throw up all in that order. He was always a bit of the sentimental type. After the initial shock wore off on me and reality set in, I realized that it actually tasted good and then went ahead and finished off the plate and made some room for more. I mean I think thats what the bunny would have wanted. Right.
Are there any ongoing art projects you would like to promote? Let's see I have a children's book I'm putting together that will hopefully be out during the summer "Monsters on Parade" Working on a new website. I had one done all set up just right then my dumb ass loading the page to my domain ended up screwing up the whole file beyond repair so my ass is back at the computer redoing the site well at least till I can remember my password to get in to redo the site. Working on some comics I plan on setting up as a web comic at some point in my life.
In a duel to the death, Jean Luc Picard or Captain Kirk? And Why? Kirk of course, getting down with smok'n green chicks, breaking unruly alien heads. I mean he's the reason the prime directive was created. Picard c'mon. He's a hair club for men candidate.
You are on Death Row. What's your last supper? The guy in the next cell with some fava beans and a nice chianti. Or better yet some rabbit tacos. Or maybe a case of beer, rum and coke and get lit or maybe my dumb ass wouldn't be dumb enough to be on death row.
Any shout outs? Shout out to all those people who are willing to give me money to draw. You got my info use it.
