Robots in Disguise
About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
Two classic robots have a surprise for you!
Tell us a bit about this design.
It's R2-D2 driving a Dalek! Whether it be about the superiority of one of the series' over another I will leave to you. Maybe it's just simply R2's gaming seat for playing Dr Who Adventure on his Atari. This was created slightly differently to the majority of shirt designs in that it was first designed in 3D.
Where are you from?
I'm from Rugby in the UK, who's only significance is being the birthplace of Rugby. Currently living in Sheffield UK though, which you are most likely to know through a film about a handful of naked men (Full Monty)
What has your past experience been like with art and design?
Design has always been a major interest in my life, I'm currently studying for my Masters in Product (Industrial) Design which is my main area as I find 3D to generally be a more fitting medium to me. My love on t-shirts made me decide I should try my hand at tee design!
How did you initially get interested in t-shirts?
Very difficult question to answer, I don't think I've ever not been interested in t-shirts but my interest definately became an addiction since finding sites like here, Tilteed, Threadless and others.
Which character is most awesome: TBird, Teevil, Dead Bird, or Mr Pancakes?
Right now I'll say Dead Bird because since his disapearance he seems to get forgotten a lot, but then I might be lucky and Mr Pancakes could become my favourite!
If you could start a new t-shirt trend, what would it be?
Other than a new Guy for Bonfire night who exclusively wears peoples Ed Hardy Affliction and similar tees I have no idea!
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
A single favourite shirt is pretty well impossible for me, so I'll go with three! A Beautiful Battle by Jimiyo from here, love the colour pallete and Asian influence as well as the print shape. Night of the Living Bread from Seventh.Ink as I love zombies and food and it's just a great pun and shirt all round. Finally one that I'm still waiting to get but can guarantee will be a new favourite, My Imoto from Tilteed by The_JCW I love the character and colours and the japanese quotes and the story it tells! Shirts preoccupy my mind far more than they probably should!
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
I'm gonna say movies, and all time favourite I'm gonna say Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
What inspires you?
Pretty much anything can inspire me, sometimes people sometimes an object I see could be almost anything.
