Sumo Wrestler Vs. Monster Truck
About the artist
Words from the Curator:
I will not be surprised if this tee is inspired by a real Japanese TV game show.
Tell us about this design:
Fun & a little strange. I can't say this is a typical subject matter for me, but I think the dawn of sumo vs. truck ultimate fighting is now upon us & I'm here to help further the cause.
Tell us about yourself:
Artist/Illustrator/Musician from the East Coast, currently living in the windy city.
Do you own alot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite?
Just a few right now. I really like Mr. Toxic Waste & The Motive from Threadless. Next up I would like to buy one of Tang's designs, they are equally elegant & clever.
What inspires you?
Looking at all sorts of art, nature, music, films. I just saw a bunch of Ito Shinsui prints at the Art Institute of Chicago that were pretty inspiring.
How did you get into art?
Typical response, I've been drawing since I was a kid. Also, there were a lot of art books in my house when I was growing up so I was exposed to different artists and types of art, and Mad magazine.
What would be your dream job?
I don't really have a dream job at this point. I would like to be my own boss, and do something that involves creativity.
What are a few of your favorite websites?
flickr, drawger, and gigposters.com all have a ton of amazing artists to check out. Also bibliodyssey.blogspot.com/ I don't know where they find the stuff, but it is full of rare, obscure, & historical book art.
Any shout outs?
Thanks to Jimiyo for bringing my design to Teefury.
