The Gelatinously Rebellious Miscreants of Doctor Roboto
About the artistArt curated by
Something Different, and Racially Awesome! Created by one half of the dynamic artistic duo that is Kevin and Brian Luong.
Tell us about this design: I've been wanting to revisit the gelatinous blob-creature for quite some time now and pitting it up against its robot-mad-scientist-creator just seemed fitting. Lets just say that the results are slimier than I expected. (That's what she...- jk.)
Tell us about yourself: I'm a 21 year old student/illustrator who loves art and music. My father got me into drawing at a very young age and I've been going strong ever since. Though I've been set on having an art-oriented profession since middle-school, I haven't really done anything with my art until just recently when I started doing shirts for various indie bands, which I think was the kick-start I needed to get my career on the road.
What's a day in the life of Kevin like? I usually spend most of my days in class, but now that it's summer a normal day would start at around 1 or 2 in the afternoon (ok, most of the time it's 3). If I got no plans, I would just draw until the wee hours of the morning (which explains my skewed sleeping schedule). When I'm not drawing or sleeping you may find me writing and recording songs with my friend for our imaginary band, or summoning gargantuan treefolk.
Do you and your brother, Brian Luong, get along? For the most part, we do. Everything's peachy keen until one of us crosses the tape that divides our sides of rooms or wears one another's underwear, but never anything too serious. Nothing a high-stakes dance off wouldn't solve.
Do you own a lot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite? I still have most of the shirts from my early childhood, since my shirt size hasn't changed at all. My favorite would have to be the AA tri-blend. That thing is softer than pile chow chow puppies.
What would be your dream job? I'm shooting to be a full-time freelancing illustrator. I want to continue doing shirts for bands but I would really like to expand into album artwork/layout and editorial type of work. I'm pretty much down for anything that involves drawing and challenges me to step outside of my comfort zone (eek, once in awhile) and pushes me to better improve my talents.
What am I talking about!? My real dream job is to be a dinosaur.
MAC or PC? Pee Sea... ew... gross... PC.
Any shout outs? ahhhh! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
(Thanks to my Mom and Dad for supporting me and not forcing me become a pharmacist. Thanks to my brother, Brian, for making me submit this design to Teefury. Thanks to my friends and family and last but not least, thank you Jimmy and Teefury for this wonderful opportunity!)
