About the artist
Words from curator: Father's Day is June 20th for you Americans! I didn't want to spring for a laptop for my dad, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to save loads of money, and abuse my powers to curate this design so I could buy it. I kid, I kid. Great for new dads too!
Tell us about yourself:
What's a day in the life of -Sinclair like? I wake up usually to the sounds of my 2 kids (2yo, 4mo) at an unnatural time when even the birds have enough sense to be asleep, go to work as a phone monkey where I dream of designs, after work, I’m studying at Shillington
design college, so I am either there or home hiding in my man cave creating designs or sketching.
What do you want Teefury fans to know? I’ve only just begun and my best is yet to come. I’ve really just put some basic designs on Redbubble for fun. Check out designs here.
Do you own a lot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite? My tee collection is like the universe, ever expanding, and currently my fave is Dead Shred by Matthew Skiff.
If you could go only to one restaurant for the next five years, which
would it be? It would be a place called The Bali Grill, which has spicy Indonesian food that rocks my world.
Have you ever had to get stitches? Any battle scars? Other than some minor skateboarding injuries, my most significant injury was when I was breakdancing as a kid. I did a backspin into a metal door frame. It turns out spinning around really fast pushes all the blood into your head, so there was a nice spray of blood, which was pretty cool.
I ended up with a generous amount of stitches and a blood covered piece of cardboard.
How did you get your start in art? When I was 16, I worked for a surfboard company in Perth, called Santosha who made Rusty clothing, and I got to help with the printing and designing of the t-shirts. Ever since then I have always dreamed of starting my own t-shirt
business but have only recently started seriously focusing on it.
What's your art process like, from initial sketch to finished product?
Up until recently I used Photoshop, but I’ve now acquired a Wacom Tablet and I have been importing sketches into Illustrator.
What would the you of now, tell the you of 10 years ago? Invest in Google and create a social networking site called Myface.
What would be your dream job? Creating awesome tees that people really
enjoy owning, while making enough money to work from home.
MAC or PC? MAC

off and generally just be stupid with.
