The Seasons of My Mind

Tell us about this shirt!
OK this shirt was a follow up to the design that got printed at DBH called 'The Seasons of My life'. That design was a total departure from my usual style but it worked out well. This design was originally entered into the 10k contest at DBH. I knew it would never win but it gave me the motivation to do this. It was a fun piece to create. Now go get your Halloween on with this tee!
Halloween approach-eth. I had to wiki "Do they have Halloween in the
UK." Apparently the pagan holiday originates from over yonder. What's
the holiday like in the UK?
It is getting more and more watered down in the UK in my opinion. As a kid me and my brother would get dressed up and go door to door trick or treating, til we were sick of candy. Nowadays everyone seems scared to let their kids out to do it for fear of someone hurting them. All part of the fear culture we live in now I suppose.
What's the raddest Halloween costume you have ever dressed up in?
Has to be Beetlejuice. I looked awesome if I do say so myself. As a kid I would dress up as Elliot from E.T, I love that movie and was a little obsessed with it as a kid.
I see you've been cranking out some wins on some other contest sites.
Can you tell us about them?
Yeah, I have won at Tilteed, Good Joe, Allmightys and Fair and Bare recently. Good Joe and F.A.B were great because a percentage of sales goes to charity and I love that. Contributing to others via design is very rewarding. Tilteed is a newer contest but those guys seem to have a clear goal and a good eye for T-shirts. Allmightys hail from Berlin, a city that seems to like my work, I have won there twice. These guys have been around a while and have some tasty merchandise. The print quality has been good from all these companies.
How old are you?
Can you drop us some wisdom you've gleaned from your years on earth?
"A good workman never blames his tools"
"Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions."
"Bad artists always admire each other's work."
Any shout outs?
I'd like to shout out to my wife, she has been and continues to be a huge source of inspiration and more importantly, she is ridiculously supportive and selfless.
