About the artistArt curated by
Words from the curator:
Obviously Superman needs to update his costume for the 2nd movie..if at all they make a sequel, given that the last one..err.. never mind.
Tell us about this design:
So, Superman may have superhuman strength, can see through walls, but come on, he's gotta potty just like the rest of us. This design demonstrates how a redesign of his costume would help him during day to day activities like going #2. In this case, a butt flap has been integrated into his costume. He obviously forgot to button that thing back up here, resulting in an embarrassing moon moment.
Tell us about yourself:
I work for Phantom EFX during the day, which is one of the biggest developers of casino pc games. I do illustration and animation for different slot machines. It's a fun job, and has allowed me to get pretty efficient with Photoshop and After Effects. During the off hours, I do freelance and personal illustration. I am also married and have two kids, so I keep pretty busy.
Mike Myers the actor vs. Mike Myers of Halloween vs. Mike Myers (you), who would win in a Death Match?:
Oh, good question. Obviously Mike Myers of Halloween. I don't think me or Austin Powers would stand a bit of a chance against the serial killer.
Do you own alot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite?:
I own too many shirts! Let's see, my favorite would probably be... Robot Attack from DBH. It was a fun project to work on, and turned out great!
What was your favorite as a kid: comics, cartoons, or movies? Was there a specific title you liked most of all?:
COMICS! I loved Youngblood. Looking back, I can't stand Liefeld. Weird how that happens.
What advice would you offer to aspiring designers?:
Stick with it. There's something to be said for a solid foundation in traditional drawing. I would be nowhere without the years of sketching everything and anything.
What are a few of your favorite websites?:
Lately I've been spending too much time on Emptees.com. Such a wide variety of designs on there. I also frequent the Threadless forums a lot, as well as checking out what's hot at DBH.
Any shout outs?:
Huge shout out to anyone on my AIM list that I pester. You guys always give great feedback and advice. I wouldn't be here without you!
