Words from jimiyo:
Tuism is up and coming Superstar that rocks concepts like GlennZ and has flossy illustration skills like Draco. He’s definitely going to be rockin’ prints over at the major contest sites, I’d put money down on that bet.
Tell us about this design:
The Sporck It’s a timeless pun on a timeless character, a dearly loved half-martian-half-cutlery who’s dwelled in the hearts of all Trekkies for as long as they’ve been saluting the good salute. And now – before the new and very adaquately Spock-looking Zachary Quinto picks up from where the great Leonard Nimoy left off, this is a salute to Him! Sporck long and prosper!
What do you want Teefury fans to know?
Know this – earplugs are only as inverse proportionately good as the noise they’re blocking out, the pencil is mightier than pen, and “Freeeeedom!” is a better battlecry than “חווווווופש!!!”
Name a few of your favorite things.

Do you own alot of shirts? If so, what’s your favorite?
Well, normal un-voted-for shirts yes. I’m still relatively new to this whole Tee scene, and Threadless’s had to refund me twice because my order never arrived… So not a lot of designer tees, but my favourite so far is my own work – AV Mouse. I’m just waaaaay too proud of it :)
What inspires you?
I could opt for the easy out and say “everything”, and it would be absolutely true – but if we get down to specifics… Media. The internet. Not so much TV because I don’t watch much of it, but everything and everyday occurances gets me thinking in totally the wrong ways… Sometimes they end up in the right places, though, these thoughts.
Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years with your art career or other?
Happily creating more stuff not by commision but by volition. Not limiting ideas to just drawings but to have them live in the third dimension and touch the lives of people (All of you who wear my shirts become the bearer of my little creations into the third dimension! That makes it all worthwhile!).
While I don’t really want to become a business person, it would be nice to be able to create more than what any single person is capable of… That’ll be something to work towards!
