About the artist
A word from the curator:
Does this design ring a bell? You might say that becoming a t-shirt design was his calling.
Tell us a bit about this design.
The concept of "Headphone" like most my ideas just popped in my head. There's no explaining it. I think I looked at my iPod and instantly the idea was there. It's a simple design showing a man with a phone as a head. I have a strong interest into this kind of comic yet realistic style of illustration. The man seems to be relaxed and is a very good listener. He probably talks too much too.
Where are you from?
I'm from Sydney, Australia.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
Well I'm a 4th year design student, who gains inspiration from everything around him. I don't necessarily mean abstract or beautiful things, but random things ! That, I believe brings out the best in design.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I'm a terrible planner, and forgetful. Faces I can remember but names get me every time.
Name a few of your favorite things.
Long walks on the beach under the moonlight whilst sipping pina coladas and singing Kumbaya. But also my friends, family, girlfriend, video games, classic rock, tees, soccer and road trips.
What are your feelings about the internet?
One day it will all be about control. People will have surrogates and avatars because they'll be too scared to walk outside. But right now it's swell dandy.
Would you rather own the moon or own a castle?
The moon of course. Because then I could build a castle on there in my giant bubble and harvest the delicious cheese.
Rhinocerous vs. 7 monkeys: which would win the battle?
Rhino. At least one of the monkeys will be lazy or let the others down because in teamwork there is always one person who does that. But then again monkeys are always angry and could take it out on the poor innocent rhino.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
Hmm well I have a batman one, a grey shirt simply with the yellow bat symbol in the middle but also my Quiksilver shirt, white with a black circle design. I've always been a fan of neutral colours.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
That's a tough one. Between movies and games I mean. Scratch reading. Probably games because it's an escape from the real world into a whole new fantasy or experience. Can I be a graphic designer and a Film director at the same time?
Gaming: Gears of War (PC) and Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
Film: Fight Club and The Shawshank Redemption
What inspires your work?
Mostly puns and random things, but also films I've enjoyed or things people have said.
Any shout outs?
Hi to my parents and family. My girlfriend and all my mates. I bid you Adieu.
