A Boys Imagination
About the artistArt curated by
Tell us about this design: The design, A Boys Imagination, is something that came to me when I was thinking about being a kid with a wild imagination. Fans of Calvin and Hobbes should be able to relate to Calvin's huge other worldly imagination that took him to space, prehistoric times, and dangerous encounters. I remember pretending to be animals and dinosaurs all the time as a kid, also mixed with day dreams of beating the next level on my NES. This piece mashes up the two things that consumed my mind as a young boy: video games and larger than life creatures.
Tell us about yourself: I'm an aspiring graphic designer/artist. I've always been off and on with sketching, taking breaks for a few years then picking it back up again, but have recently decided to dig in and really hone my drawing skills again. A Boys Imagination is actually an old piece that doesn't show my newer style like some of the side art. Like anything, the more you practice the better you get, and I'm getting more and more excited about how my work improves. I'm also trying to get my own line of shirts off the ground.
What other interests do have (besides drawing)? I really want to start my own t-shirt business. I live in a very art loving city and hope to develop a following and get something up and running in the next year. I really enjoy seeing new artists and styles getting printed and showcased to the public.
Why are you an aritst? I'm an artist because my mind never seems to "shut off". The best way to get what is inside my head out into view is by drawing and designing. I've always liked the idea of being able to picture something in my mind and have it become an objective and viewable reality.
What do you want Teefury fans to know? I want them to know that they can get free stickers anytime they help out The Resistance. I want them to know that my first shirt is now available and hope to have a more in depth line up of shirts soon. Also, we will be doing t-shirt drawings fairly regularly.
If you could go only to one restaurant for the next five years, which
would it be? Definitely, Qdoba. I may have actually done this if not for needing to save money. LOL
What do you like to do for fun? Play XBOX 360, watch movies, listen to music, draw, sketch, and design. I have a friend that is a huge movie fan as well and we are going through a must watch list this summer.
What do you do for a living? I work at a tech support help desk.
What was your first printed commercial artwork? My first printed commercial artwork was "King Pong" right here on Tee Fury!!!!
How did that feel? It felt amazing. My wife was so proud and took a picture of the shirt once it showed up and posted it on facebook! :)
What would be your dream job? Running a t-shirt company that showcases new and amazing talent.
Any shout outs? At this point my shotouts go to all those who are already part of The Resistance and hope to have many more followers soon!
