About the artist
Words from the Curator:
Ahh.. me and my soft spot for animals with mouths wide open. ha! Really love the flow on this one!
Tell us about this design:
This design is the antithesis of my personality. I'm not typically a loud or outspoken person, so it feels good when I can express something like this through art.
Tell us about yourself:
I'm a 29 year old who designs fire alarm systems for a living, but look forward to the downtime I have when I get home to work on my art.
Do you own alot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite?
I do own a lot of shirts. My favorite one at the moment is from the band Between the Buried and Me. It's based on the cover they did of Queen's "Bicycle". It's a throwback to a great design.
What inspires you?
History and technology. The juxtaposition of both really fascinates me. I'm also really inspired by music.
How did you get into art?
Growing up, I always drew a lot. I got serious about it in high school when one of my teachers really pushed me. Thank you Mr. Holcomb. And then there was college . . .
What would be your dream job?
My initial dream job was to be a graphic designer for a big metal and rock record labels, but that didn't really pan out. And of course like everyone else I want to have my own clothing company, but I do really love my job now.
What are a few of your favorite websites?
I love emptees, gomedia, theprp, lambgoat, and of course teefury.
Any shout outs?
3 Quarters Dead, a band that I've worked with for a while, for supplying an outlet for my artistic hunger, and AJ, thanks for noticing a needle in a haystack.
