Rock Paper Scissors
About the artist
A word from the curator:
This shirt is for those who throw out their hand signs like they're going into battle- Rock Paper Scissors isn't just a game!
About the art:
It translates to 'Janken' which is the Japanese equivalent to Rock Paper scissors.
Where are you from?
I was born in Murwillumbah, Australia, to an Austrian dad and an Australian mum.
Where would you like to be from?
Probably from the distant past so I could appreciate all our modern marvels with fresh eyes.
Do you think your life has had a defining moment? If yes, what was it? If no, what would you like it to be?
I think my defining moment (apart from getting married and the birth of my son) would be realising I could make a decent living from sitting at home and drawing all day.
What was your favorite thing to draw as a beginning artist? Is it similar or different to what you prefer to draw now?
Pretty much the same as now- women, monsters and silly faces...I haven't matured much.
In the event of a worldwide zombie outbreak, what role would you take in helping to rebuild society?
Drawing would probably be a useless talent, so i'd probably end up being the cook. Gotta keep the survivors well fed and I'm a whiz with a tin of beans.
Which do you usually choose, rock, paper or scissors?
Paper of course! It's the artist's choice. And despite the cuts you can get from sharp scissors and a jagged rock- nothing hurts more than a paper cut!
What do you hope the future will be like?
For all your sakes, it better not be a zombie holocaust, because my cooking isn't that great.
Describe the perfect sandwich.
A good quality bread with sesame seeds and peanut butter.
