What's a day in the life of jimiyo like? I wake up around 9 or 10 am (I am a vampire), answer emails, check twitter, check various sites for possible ideas on upcoming prints for Teefury, browse Teefury facebook and forums, and in general look for trends and ideas that will resonate with Teefurians, look for ideas on how to build online communities, as well as look for art ideas for myself to create. Throughout the day, I try to send emails about designs, set up curations, schedule, troll Teefury Facebook, twitter, and munch on food all day. At night time, it varies. I usually try to art, or relax.
Name a few of your favorite things. I <3 Teefury. Working. Arting on occasion. Ginger tea. Katsu don. LOLcats. Calpico. Brainfarting about ideas. Trying to figure out stuff. Helping people.
Black shirts in general FTW.
What inspires you? Seeing other artists work.
If you could go only to one restaurant for the next five years, which would it be? Any Japanese restaurant.
Have you ever had to get stitches? Any battle scars? Many times. My head has hit a chair, a desk, a wall, a water ski, (a snow ski too, no stitches), and a baseball bat. All required at least 5-8 stitches I think, I can't seem to remember.
What advice would you offer to aspiring designers? With the internet, you can easily make a market for yourself, and start making money as an artist. There are so many opportunities out there for artists if you just work hard, work smart, and be nice. Here's an article on creating passive streams of income from art. Read it!
MAC or PC? I am a designer/illustrator, and I am a PC. I use a piece of crap PC to make my artwork. What's that say about having one type of system or another? In fairness, I hate Vista and 7. XP Professional FTW.
