About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
I'm one of those annoying people who insists on driving the speed limit and coming to a full stop at every stop sign. But in video games, it's a totally different story- I'll go as fast as the car will take me, and I'd rather slam into a wall than tap the brakes. Here's to breaking all the rules... when it's perfectly safe to do so :)
Tell us the background of this design.
There are some hills in the distance with a few clouds scattered above.
Just kidding. This is based on the classic Nintendo game I grew up playing with my sister, Analise. Because I would always win, she was convinced that I was entering in cheat codes to speed. It would always make me laugh. After reminiscing on the old days months back, the idea was instantly born.
My name is David, and I'm from Dallas. But please feel free to call me Chaco, Soames, Gonzo, or DFD. Any of those work.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
My feet are crazy ticklish. And wow, I've never written the word 'ticklish' before. It's a really bizarre-looking word.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Chocolate chip cookies, Velcro shoes, black keys on the piano, and the color green.
What are your feelings about Nintendo?
I'm a fan for life.
Do you prefer playing sports, watching sports, or avoiding them entirely?
Watching is great. Playing is infinitely greater. When you don't have bad knees or ankles.
Punk vs. metal: which would win the battle?
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Heiko Windisch's "The Motive." It's got two panda bears, riding a giant remote controlled robot in space, all while picking rainbow weeds from the ground. What else could you ask for?
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
I want to say reading, but I tend to only read books suited for ten year olds. Or ones with pictures in them. But I can still choose reading, right? Nothing beats Harry Potter.
What inspires your work?
Pretty much anything and everything. Except for country music. That dis-inspires my work. And yes, I made up that word.
Any shout outs?
Love you, Mom and Dad. And sis. And friends.
