Tell us a bit about this design.
Web Maker is something about a craze of one of favorite superhero icon. There was this time when an idea pop into my mind after watching my favorite basketball team, some fans have these foam finger that their raising always to cheer up. So, being a fan of these superheroes that influences us a lot to start drawing and making sketches, it came up to me to work on a foam finger for my superhero. I think all of us will recognize who's this. We need a superhero nowadays, thinking they are real to help us into a lot of problems in our world. Kudos to all our superheroes, fiction or real. Keep up the good inspiration and the good works.

What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I simply want TeeFury fans to know me as a humble artist that only wants to be appreciated and make a symbolic designs sending messages to inspire and advocate our World, concerning current and past issues & problems. A more sensible contributor of this community.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I don't want them to find out that I am always a fan of designs with subliminal message, unless it is explained more by the artist. A vector lover more of a rasterize designs. Perfectionist sometimes.
Name a few of your favorite things.
I like wearing my designs. I like making royalties with it also. I like treating my family out in the mall or places they want to go, when I am making extra money. I like singing with my little daughter in my spare time. I like listening to pop acoustic music. These are some of my favorite things and love to do.
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
When I was a kid, there were ninja turltes, that I love to do sketches always, as I remember. Also there is Superman and Batman. Those are some things influenced me in doing my art. Most of them are characters I always watched in the television.
What is your favorite thing about nature?
Nature, I always love it, I prefer Nature seeing than any other adventures. My favorite thing in nature is its wonderful colors that blends harmoniously. It makes my vision feeling fresh and clear. I also love its different shapes and structures, it is truly amazing scenes.
Superheroes vs. supervillains: which would win the battle?
I always prefer Superheroes, because for me, heroes have all superpowers to use for always good purposes. Good always wins over bad things, that is some thoughts that I've always see and truly known since I was a kid. Villains have their special ability or powers, more often use for their selfish purposes.
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I have a copy of my Tiger Safari shirt http://ih0.redbubble.net/work.4678118.1.fc,550x550,gold.v3.jpg which was featured in one of T-shirt Community in the Web. I like it so much because It came out really good for me, the fabric color is natural and the print effect if so smooth, I guess DTG print is use on it. The natural and the vintage effect really blended well in the fabric. The most important part, it is one of my first designs that I use to post in the web, and I am a nature lover so I'm so much into this shirt, but I don;t want to wear it, I want it look always new.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Can I choose gaming and watching movie? I'm not actually a bookworm but I like reading a little. I choose gaming because it is relaxing for me, NBA 2K11 is one of my games in my PC that I love to play after doing designs. I also choose watching movie because it explores me to different scenarios and places sometimes facts or fiction but the message of some lines and lessons of movies are the ones that we can use as one of my virtues in life. Epic movies are my favorite like TROY.
What inspires your work?
There are factors that inspires my work. One thing is the peaceful ambiance in the night. The cool sound of pop acoustic like boyce avenue. Or sometimes listening to radio station at night. Watching documentary series for nature, its interesting facts and information. Surfing the net helps to juice up ideas to work on. Most important is seeing my daughter growing up healthy.
