What was your "break through" moment you knew you made it as a designer/illustrator.
While getting pancakes on TeeFury with my Winchester Bros. Hell & Back t-shirt was really cool, I'd have to say having my Blueprint Waka-Waka design included in the February '15 LootCrate was a pretty outstanding moment.
If you were a sea creature, what would you be and why?
Oh, a huge manatee…
Who was your favorite comic book/movie/cartoon character as a kid
I had a Giant-Sized Issue of Empire Strikes Back that I read until it fell apart. Favorite movie: Star Wars, obviously.
Favorite cartoon: That's tough. I'd have to say Looney Tunes. Every Saturday morning at the crack of dawn; I never missed it.
Right now I'm obsessed with?
Collecting 6" Star Wars Black figures. It's expensive AND difficult to find—a dangerous combination.
Really terrible movie that is your secret guilty pleasure?
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I think it's a good movie, and a lot of the critics are suffering from residual Lucas hate from the prequels. Nuke the fridge? Ninja, please, the Indiana Jones series is FULL of silly crap: jumping out of planes in a raft; a giant rock ball; nazi-saluting monkeys; a thousand year old knight; and voodoo dolls. It's like they've never watched an Indy movie before.
What song would best describe your art?
Crossroads by Cream
What's the strangest thing you've drawn?
A blank. *rimshot*
You and who else trapped on a desert island?
Someone with a boat… or Tom Hanks.
