Tell us about this design:
This design was originally drawn during science class in 2008. Since then its been blasted across the web, printed in various forms, and drawn in numerous versions. The message remains the same; simple & honest. Be nice and make something meaningful!
How did you get into drawing?
I started drawing sport figures, action heroes and Jesus soaring through the clouds dunking a basketball at an early age. It wasn't until college that I started looking at drawing as a means of expression. All through grade school it was used to past time in class and once I started obsessing over lines & shapes I discovered that it helped me focus. It became very meditative and therapeutic.
What do you do when you're not drawing?
My wife and I enjoy playing wii, listening to records, streaming netflix, going to the park, bike rides, and cooking. So if I'm not drawing or hanging with my lady then I'm likely blogging, playing basketball, laughing, or cutting out pictures of kittens.
What's your perfect Sunday afternoon?
It probably starts after a tasty meal. Then a friendly game of bball at my favorite court on top of a parking garage. Followed by a sunny bike ride to Barton Springs to relaxxxxxxxxx!
Do you listen to music when you draw?
If so, what? Absolutely. I always have, but recently have been enjoying spoken word & comedy. As far as music goes....Velvet Underground, Gauntlet Hair, Atlas Sound, Bob Dylan, Toro Y Moi, The Beach Boys, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, and White Denim have been in the rotation the past few months. Thanks so much for featuring me on Teefury!
