About the artist
Words from jimiyo:
I don't know what it is but it's beautiful. Beautiful is an odd word for a tee design, but I'll still claim it. It will look even more awesome once it's printed. I eyeballed this design over 6 months ago, and I am glad tolagunestro offered it up recently.
Tell us about this design:
It's a continuation of SciFi series that I've been doing since the second half of the last year. It's begun with my first featuring design here in Teefury, and I had another feature here with some of the same graphic elements. I try to portrait alien graphic elements, aiming to describe how would art, propaganda, and graphical elements, in general, look like in far future places.
What's a day in the life of Lucas like?
Fulfilled with art production. I work as a designer in an advertising agency in Brazil. I breath, eat, and dream design all the time. Even in times when I am not producing art, I'm prepairing myself to produce it. It' s a heaven for me actually, because then I'm able to practice my technical skills even when I'm not doing art itself.
What is your workflow like? (draw on paper? all computer? etc)
To my personal t-shirt works, I draw with japanese ideogram pens and micropigment pens in A3 papers (more than sufficient to me for the details), right after sketching the art in some paper (wich is often a moleskine that I kill, murder by rudely sketching it). Then I scan it and correct some things, if necessary, with tablet. Then I vetorize it, and then I keep switching the art between vector program and photoshop to reach the exact colours I imagined for it.
What is your favorite piece of personal work?
The next one, for sure!
Is there anything you would like to promote?
Any shout outs?
I'd like to say an uppercase thanks to TeeFury and to Jimmy for this featuring, and for supporting me, since almost the beginning of TeeFury history!
Let's keep it in full throttle, guys!
