Tell us about this design:
The design is based off of a quote from the show Breaking Bad. Recently I just watched all three seasons and I really got into the show. I thought this would be an appropriate homage to Mr. White and his tighty whities.
Where are you located?
What's a day in the life of Matt like?
It's pretty cool. Right now I am just freelancing and finishing my last year of college, definitely looking forward to what the future holds.
Do you own alot of shirts? If so, what's your favorite?
I own a ton of freaking shirts! I have way too many. I think my current favorite shirt is from the company Paper Root Clothing, called "The Bunny Tee"
What inspires you?
Music for sure, Film, and looking at other folk's work definitely inspires me to be better.
If you could go only to one restaurant for the next five years, which would it be?
Wow, that's a hard one. I would say Qdoba, because I love it, but I don't think I could eat just Mexican for the next 5 years. So let's just go with Friday's they have good Chicken Fingers and a ton of other stuff.
What do you like to do for fun?
Travel, go to Chuck E Cheese's, and hang out with my friends.
What was your first printed commercial piece of artwork? How did that feel?
I used to do shirts for my brothers band a long time ago, looking back they were pretty terrible, but it was always really exciting to get the shipment in the mail, and actually see my work printed on a shirt. That definitely laid the foundation for me to get into the design field.
What's your art process like, from initial sketch to finished product?
My art process is kind of strange, it involves listening to a ton of music. Sometimes I will start with a sketch or just write down a note on my phone of a potential concept. Then I go to the computer and just start looking for imagery that would work/inspire the design. From there I just compose it all on the computer adding element after element until the design is complete.
MAC or PC?
