Q: What is the most favorite piece you’ve ever created?
“Lets just call all of my journals an art piece that won’t end until I die and leave it at that. Maybe I love them so much because they are 100% for me? Or perhaps it is because they aren’t about any one thing, more of a dumping ground for experiences, drawings, handwritten notes, fortune cookie fortunes, photos, etc. I even write backwards sometimes if I want to keep thoughts private. Other people can read it for sure, it just takes a certain amount of commitment. This design is really just a stupid little comic I pasted into my sketchbook anyway.” [Buy this tee now!]
“A blind contour drawing I made of my studio space whilst studying Fine Art at Stellenbosch University in third year. It represents a period when I was spending almost all of my time being creative and making things. I found inspiration in a lot of places and it flowed freely into my work. It was a big turning point in the way that I approached art making.” [Buy this tee now!]
“It’s hard to choose my favorite piece of art, but I have a special affection for my artwork called ‘3012’. I like the concept and colors, mainly because it carries me to a mysterious and futuristic world. This project was printed at Threadless, another reason to be special.” [Buy this tee now!]
“As a class project last year, we redesigned posters of our favorite movies. I enjoyed working on the sinuous lines.” [Buy this tee now!]
“It’s impossible to really pick a favorite, but I’ve always liked this screen print I did a while back. It started as a notebook sketch that became the first thing I attempted to turn into vector art. Then I decided to attempt hand painting a screen to play around with and ended up with this far-from-perfect set of prints on a old piece of kraft paper, now framed and hanging in my brother’s Brooklyn apartment.” [Buy this tee now!]
“I think my favorite is ‘Fishes in Geometrics’; I like how it merges vintage and modern elements, and I love the overall atmosphere of the composition. In my opinion, it is well balanced.” [Buy this tee now!]
