A word from wotto: AWESOME!
First of all how did you come to be in the Black Rock Collective?
A bunch of threadless submitters began setting each other themes for shirt ideas to give them something to work on and I got on the mailing list somehow. I think when I got involved there was about 10 of us doing it. I don't remember when it became formal and the group was named.
Tell us a little bit about your ‘BRC series’ design.
I was thinking about the 80s trend of adding ridiculous numbers of necks to guitars and how it would be nice to see someone play more than one at a time so I came up with the multiple armed guy, and then I decided the guitar would have to one-up him somehow and decided it was logical that it would sprout tentacles and impale him. Duh.
Do you play the guitar?
No but in classic parental form I'm forcing my children to learn so I can enjoy their success vicariously.
Who is your favorite member of the BRC? (Don’t be shy, I’ll be asking all the others too ;)
In terms of style right now I love the poster art of emoforce, but on a personal level my favourite member has yet to be determined by bare-knuckle fighting.
Which members of the BRC have you seen dancing with the devil in the pale moon light?
Adam Antium. He's got a heart of gold wrapped in a storm cloud and walks in perpetual darkness. He'll save us all some day.
If the BRC lived in a house together who would do the dish washing?
Mezo, because I've seen photos of her house and I suspect she's nice and anal about cleanliness. In fact I'm sure I've seen a picture of her dancing while washing dishes and who am I to deny her that joy?
Do the BRC have any members that should be struck off for bad behaviour?
Absolutely, probably most of us. Especially if egotism, attention whoring, and failure to meet deadlines fall under the definition of bad behaviour.
What’s next for you and the BRC?
I can't say what the immeadiate future holds, but as we slowly farm our coffers I'm pretty sure popular opinion is coming around to the idea of some day designing a private jet and zooming around the globe beautifying/defacing popular landmarks. Imagine if we collaborated on a moustache for the Statue of Liberty, and makeup on Mt Rushmore. That's the dream.
Which member of the BRC do you know the most intimately?
Depends what you mean by intimately. Are you asking which I've spoken to in the most depth or which I've seen the least dressed? Bramish fits one of those categories rather well.
