About the artist
A word from the curator:
You asked for it, so we got it! This design comes to you by popular demand :)
Tell us the background of this design.
Twitter is a very useful website. It makes it easy for me to get up to date info on my favorite businesses and people of interest. This shirt is for those who hate what Twitter has become. I could care less what you’re doing and reading what your doing makes me feel creepy. I’m stalking people and I didn’t even get off my couch to do so. In truth this shirt is just a funny parody that means whatever you want it to...now tweet that you just read this.
How did you get started designing t-shirts?
I’ve always dabbled in art. I have been drawing for years and I use Photoshop to make graphics for friends or for my work. About a year ago, a friend of mine recommended Redbubble.com. It’s a website that makes it easy to sell your designs on t-shirts. Since then, it’s become an addiction. My ideas come from researching the internet for what’s in fashion to designing the hundreds of ideas in my head. I have found my true passion in life. It’s very satisfying knowing that people not only like your art, but they are wearing it.
What advice would you offer to aspiring designers?
Continually learn everything you can about design. Ask other designers for any help you may need. The design community is full of individuals helping aspiring designers find their muse. Put your work out there and have confidence in it. Go to school by majoring in the field of work that is your dream job. Inspire yourself by watching movies, reading art magazines, researching the internet and going to art shows. Who knows, you can be the greatest designer in existence. You just need take that spark and set the biggest fire this world has ever seen.
What would be your dream job?
My dream is to become a conceptual artist for a video game company. Everyday, I take a step closer to my goal. One day, you will play a game with my character designs in it.
What are your feelings about Australia?
My wife and I hope to visit Australia in a few years. They are home to some of my favorite animals and geological finds. From the Sydney Opera House to the coral reef, Australia is full of tourist attractions that I’m anxious to see. Who knows, I may move there one day.
Do you prefer lemurs, chimpanzees or gorillas?
LEMURS FOREVER!! King Julian form Madagascar is the greatest primate cartoon ever created. “Come on, time to boogie.”
Disco vs. Polka: which would win the battle?
I would hope they killed each other. Rid the world of catchy songs and mind numbing tempos. It would just be a stale mate. Now put some metal on so we can pump our fists in celebration.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I own too many shirts and have too many favorites. But my most recent favorite shirt is my Marc Eco Star Wars shirt. It has most of the cast from the original trilogy sketched on it. I love way it looks. From a far, it looks like your common fashionable men’s t-shirt until you look closer and realize it’s the greatest Star Wars shirt of all time.
What was your favorite as a kid: comics, cartoons, or movies? Was there a specific title you liked most of all?
I watched cartoons all day and everyday. I pride myself on the fact that I have seen every single Tom & Jerry cartoon.
What are a few of your favorite websites?
And of course,
Any shout outs?
I love you wife.
I would like to give a special thanks to my father.
