Tell us about the design:
One day, I spoke with some kids, and all they seemed to know about pulp monsterism was the sparkling abominations (not even PROPER abominations) that were the Twilight “vampires”. The children of the next generation may never know the electric fire blast of Godzilla, or the tragic love-triangle of King Kong, or what a REAL werewolf’s supposed to look like, or Frankie’s tragic upbringing.
The thought made the real monsters of the world really, really sad. Except Godzilla, who’s just happy he’s well-fed.
For the benefit of them kids, I present an educational and friendly diagrammatic depiction of just a few of our favourite monsters. Call them gateway monsters, if you will.
It’s been over 7 months since your last Teefury print, Terminated March, what have you been up to?
Wow, has it been 7 months? I’ve gone and started my blog at www.tuism.com, which was intended as an illustrative outlet but has turned into a writing and humour dump. Also there I’ve introduced a character that I’ve always had in my head since varsity days: Zipperboy. Otherwise my day job in soul-selling (advertising) keeps me busy enough to have barely enough time to keep up the semblance of having a life after I knock off at the dungeon. I mean office. I also made a few odd designs and illustrations here and there in whatever time I could steal in between. Check ’em out.
What inspires you?
Recently? New stuff where you might have been expecting a copy paste, little messages from total strangers embedded in the mp3 you downloaded, layers named after lines from the poem “The Wanderer” from clients who thought it would be interesting. It was. Commenting my phone number and a personal message to persons unknown in html codes for big clients. I’ve also recently started to cite boredom as inspiration, and inspiration as inspiration. Also, The Burning Man, Mandlebrot, Polymathy, and Yoga. For people who can’t be bothered to do it.
I think you got AV mouse printed? Wanna link me?
AV Mouse went and got itself reprinted at the local (South African) label Springleap.
I see they’re sold out on it again though, @springleap – you guys better keep the supply up :)
Here’s the link to the AV Mouse tee
Any shout outs?
The idea in shouting out I guess would be to shout at peeps who might actually see it. So – wazzup goes out to all my tweeps on @Tuism!
Cheers @Eraneyal and all the kind souls at @springleap, @hyprballad, @hadez2000, @Naytally, @rhegan, @clivesimpkins, @cathiehu and of course @jimiyo and @teefury for all the support you can muster for one crazy such as myself!
