About the artist
A word from the curator:
Video games are a huge influence on our culture, maybe one day they'll affect the alphabet and language itself!
Tell us about this design:
Video games are fun and the need for typography arose....so why not combine them together...
Where are you located?
Splitting time between the Netherlands and Canada
What's a day in the life of Varun like?
Right now I'm in school so, I spend a lot of time working on projects.....and partying.....crazy Dutch people drink too much.
What do you want Teefury fans to know?
If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. Good thing I drink tea.
What inspires you?
Just about anything in my surroundings. I constantly have to write down ideas, inspired by something I saw on the street.
How did you get your start in art?
I've always been in interested in art and design but, one day I decided to give up my job as an engineer and take it more seriously. One year in and it's not going too bad.
What would the you of now, tell the you of 10 years ago?
Learn how to do a lot more stuff, draw more and not punch that horse in the groin
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
Even though my name sounds like someone, that Conan the Barbarian has to fight amidst a pile of topless women, I 'm just a regular guy ;)
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Exchange it for two million dollars......or just get in store credit
What advice would you offer to aspiring designers?
I'm an aspiring designer myself but, the most important thing that I learnt was to ask 'Why?'
MAC or PC?
A bit of both......why all the hate, huh?
What are a few of your favorite websites?
http://gizmodo.com/, http://www.xkcd.com/, http://ffffound.com/ (even though I still don't have an invite) and http://www.lazertits.com/ of course
Any shout outs?
Just wanna thank all my mates at the Royal Academy of Art, you're the best. A big thanks to Teefury for letting me print this design and hi Avrïl ;)
