Commanding the Cobra
About the artistArt curated by
Tell us the background of this design.
I was a huge GI Joe fan as a kid, had a ton of action figures and pretty much thought they were the greatest thing on the planet. Reminiscing about that show and trying to remember the names of all the characters gave me the idea of showing Cobra Commander commanding cobras in a different way.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I'm very interested in the t-shirt industry and have two websites devoted to it- Compete-tee-tion (all about t-shirt design contests) and TeeMagnet (which keeps track of all the major shirt-a-day vendors)
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
One of my favorite things to draw is oceanic animals, but I don't really like the water much. I hate swimming, and I get seasick on boats!
Name a few of your favorite things.
Playing with dogs, cracking jokes, learning new things
Which is your favorite ninja turtle?
I have always had a lot of respect for Donatello. It takes a lot of self-confidence to walk into a sword fight with a large stick.
If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
Definitely a monkey. They always seem to be having a great time, just swinging from tree to tree and exploring their world.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Right now it's video games- they're the best way to de-stress. The games I've been playing most lately are Dragon Age and Rock Band on XBOX 360, but I just got a PS3 so I'll probably play something on that next. Any recommendations?
What inspires your work?
Lack of sleep, multi-tasking, and an odd sense of humor. Also, artists like Jimiyo, James Cho and a.mar.illo get me excited about what can be done within the t-shirt medium.
