The Inevitable Outer Fate.
About the artist
Well first off let me just thank everybody that supported this piece, put up all kinds of great comments, and said how much they wanted to own it on a shirt whenever I posted it on various forums around the 'net, and to TeeFury itself for giving me my first print on only the second piece I've ever submitted to a site. When I got the e-mail from Jimiyo telling me I was in there was many a celebratory fist-pump and pelvic thrust done in front of the mirror that day.
With that out of the way, the concept for this design is all about fate and how the characters and/or elements involved are either about to meet theirs or are somehow involved in pushing another towards their own. Wether that be the storm on the horizon, the slug slowly crawling it's way towards the end of a withering tree branch, the disembodied hands pulling levers and pushing buttons to set things into motion, or the bird whose wing is weighed down by a pocket watch that slowly ticks away the seconds till everything meets it's inevitable conclusion. But, it doesn't matter exactly when it happens. Even if you're ahead of schedule, you'll still be right on time. I don't want to give too much more of it away though, I'd like the viewer to try and figure out each individual little story on their own, but yeah, that's the general idea.
Where are you located?
Part awesome, part amazing. It's too hard to describe in words though, and the only thing that would do it justice is a mixture of interpretive dance and a series of obscene hand gestures.
Do you own alot of shirts?
It's funny, I really don't. I have the artists' curse and it tends to make me kind of picky when it comes to things like that. Right now I only own about 4-5 shirts I like, and wear, my favorite being Alex Solis' Original B-Boy. I'm eagerly awaiting something I just ordered from Brass Tack too though.
How did you find Teefury?
With a stolen treasure map.
Have you ever had to get stitches? Any battle scars?
I do, actually. My lip got split in half when I was a kid, and there's still a really deep gash there to this day. It's pretty cool, I like it.
What was your favorite as a kid: comics, cartoons, or movies? Was there a specific title you liked most of all?
When I was a kid it was always cartoons. I was always a fan of Looney Toons, but I have to say that Ren N Stimpy had more of an effect on me than any other thing I've ever seen on TV.
Tell us about your favorite food.
Crabs. I love eating crabs. There's just something about tearing another animal apart with my bare hands and devouring it that's seems so incredibly satisfying to me. :)
If you could own an exotic animal as a pet, what kind would you have, and what would you name it?
Some kind of giant half-shark half-alligator half-octopus that I could ride, and I would probably name him WTF?! with 17 thousand exclamation points and question marks.
MAC or PC?
Idealy I would have a MAC for work and a PC for lols. Though I only have a PC right now... which should give you a little insight into what my priorities are.
Any shout outs?
Yeah, everybody over at TeeBanter.com that supported the heck out of this piece by putting up with my incessant spamming of updates while it was still a work in progress, and the numerous times I told them it was finished then turned around and made about 90 more revisions and posted them instead. :)
