About the artistArt curated by
Words from jimiyo:
We curated Scumbugg aka Matt Verges early in Teefury history. I recently saw someone mention his Prairie Squid design on Facebook, so I took some time to look up what he was up to. I was glad to find this beautiful piece of art hadn't already been claimed. Welcome back Matt Verges!
What's been going on since you last print? It's been a long time! (07/16/09)
Well, as I mentioned in the July ’09 interview, I moved to Denver and took co-ownership of a thirty year old union printshop. Business has been good, despite the crappy economy, and it’s been incredibly refreshing being my own boss. My co-owners and I are in the process of acquiring a warehouse, so it seems life is about to get even more amazing.
Although my workload now includes designing and printing various paper products, I’m still getting a fair amount of freelance work done. I got to work for Fright Rags and Earache Records a lot this year, as well as a bunch of other great bands and clothing labels.
Since design and printing is now my career rather than my hobby, that’s opened up my nights and weekends for hanging out with cats, Wii bowling, failed attempts at eating seven pound breakfast burritos, and an absurd amount of Quantum Leap.
What would the Matt of the Now tell the Matt of 10 years ago?
What's in the future?
Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top-secret project known as Quantum Leap. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Dr. Beckett prematurely stepped into the project accelerator, and vanished.
He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was maintained through brain-wave transmissions with Al, the project observer, who appears in the form of a hologram, that only Dr. Beckett can see and hear. Trapped in the past, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.
