Many Faces of Spock
About the artistArt curated by
Which Spock head was your favorite to make?
Wow thats like asking which of your kids is your favorite, out of the 28. Magnum P.I. has his charms, Drag Queen Spock is pretty sexy, 80's Hair Metal Spock has a power ballad I'd love to hear. Hard to say which is my favorite but I can tell you which was the funnest to draw. Zombie Spock
Where did you get your name Raz?
Do we have time for that...actually its a pretty stupid an mostly boring. I use to sign my stuff as RaSi. The first 2 letters of my first name and the first 2 letters of my last name. Friends just started shortening my name to Ras. Then I saw a Simon Bisley painting that he simply signed as Biz. That in turn inspired my to also swap my "S" for a "Z" and BOOM..you get Raz. All this was around 1988, '89 and '90 and its been that way ever since. Hopefully we still got a few people still awake.
Have you always been an artist?
Always, I spent the first 9 months of my life covering the inside of my moms womb in graffiti. Been doodling and producing crap ever since.
Why are you an artist?
It's the only thing I know how to do well, enjoy doing and can see myself still enjoying 20 years from know. I dabbled in skateboarding but was never that good though I still enjoy riding from time to time.
What was the worst job you ever had?
Everything and anything customer service/call center related. Doing that for a few years made me realize that the vast majority of people in this world are idiots. I hated that job for giving me such as sad perception of people in general.
Any wisdom to impart to us about anything?
Don't yawn as when under a flock of birds, swimming with a golf club during a thunderstorm is not a good idea, buying a shirt by Raz will automatically give you street cred and make you better looking, anything worth achieving is worth working hard for, you don't need a degree to be an idiot, crazy is just a matter of perception, follow your heart and your instincts because even if you fail miserably it will always be worth it, fear is for suckers, if the vans a rock'n don't come a knock'n and finally don't ever eat the yellow snow.
Family is always a good shout out to have, the recent reconnecting of some school mates from way back in Costa Rica, to the artists that are always able to amaze and inspire me, my wife for not hating me when I work til the wee hours of morning, to the people who actually like my stuff enough to want to buy, to the people who complain about my art inspiring me to create something better so I can rub in their faces, to commas for allowing me to keep adding stuff to this shout out list, teefury for printing my stuff and Jimiyo for being so cool and liking my stuff enough to get it printed here.
