Where are you located?
In the jungle, the mighty jungle… the biggest manmade forest in the world – Johannesburg, South Africa.

All I know about soccer and South Africa is from the movie Invictus. Is it huge over there?
Oh, good joke, Invictus was a rugby movie, and that was old South Africa. I’d say that District 9 is a better portrayal of modern South Africa – lots of aliens (Nigerians), Nigerians, and robots (for real, we call our traffic lights “robots”).

Jokes aside, it’s the most beautiful country ever. Every time something brings me down, I look up and sigh happily at our amazing skyscapes. It’s also the most controversial place I know, and that just comes with how young the country is. It’s probably how America was when it just came out of its fledgling days, minus the muskets and cannons.

What’s a day in the life of Tuism like?
A typical day involves many absolute brain farts into my lovely HTC Hero, ready for either tee drawings or world domination. Some of my latest entries in my HTC notepad (which I call Ideator 2000, cos old-school is da rule) include stuff like “Viet-nom” and “Ironic Sharkstronaut”.

Other component of my day include being acknowledged as a certifiable nutter by most of my colleagues. (and by advertising standards… I think that’s at least par for the course)

Recently I’ve taken up some new responsibilities, sometimes the first thing I do is talk to corporates! Approve memos! Lead a workshop! Remember birthdays! Direct workflow! (not) My own bathroom! Micromanage! Promote synergy! …

What have you been up to since Monster Chain back in January? Any new prints?

I’ve been REALLY way too busy at work for a decent amount of own-time to do the stuff I wanna do like “Viet-nom” and other non-star-wars-inspired ideas. I did have two prints though, Zombie Cat was picked up by woot and I created a design inspired by our own great Nelson Mandela.

I also created a Darth Wolf design for Tee-wolf, a new up-coming tees site which is due to launch on May 2nd (should have already as this one goes to press), which I myself really dig quite a lot.

Otherwise I’ve been butting heads with CSS and php and wordpress and all that DRY stuff, totally revamping Pleas please please check it out – I put hours and hours of (wobbly) code in this – and I hope the love shows.

Cool, thanks everyone if you made it this far :) Enjoy the World Cup!

Started as a designer, then learned that ideas alone can’t create, so I learned to code. Makes games & designs t-shirts!
