When Monday rolls around with a brand new week, so will some brand new tees! But how can we release a fresh batch without getting to know the artists? We wanted to get down to the basics, so we asked next week’s printed designers what inspired them to pursue their dream of being an artist. Before you ditch out of the office and start the weekend festivities, check out the artists’ quotesand their soon-to-be-on-your-back designs. Be sure to come back on Monday to grab some new tees!
Q: What inspired you to become an artist?
"I could have fun with my thoughts and communicate with people without having to speak. Drawing and designing are like blurring the lines between work and play.” Buy this tee now!
“I think it just came about naturally. I guess you can say I was drawin’ towards it.” Buy this tee now!
“First, thanks for calling me an artist. In answer to the question, artists.” Buy this tee now!
"Music inspires me to be an artist, from the album cover art to the personality of the artists themselves. I want to somehow be a part of what they create in any way. Fellow artists and their work motivate me, and that inspiration brought me to where I am and who I am now.” Buy this tee now!
“When I was a kid, I made a little totem pole out of nothing, mainly a few things I grabbed here and there, each chosen spontaneously. Things like plastic, straws, fur, glass beads, woolen cord, pieces of soap. I felt excited while composing these different elements; a feeling that there was some kind of magic in it. Then I saw the reaction from my teachers and classmates; the little kids sensing the same magic. I was delighted by their excitement, but my body just stood still with wide open eyes. It was that first astonishing moment of realizing how the things you make impact the spectators, changing both their behavior and your own.” Buy this tee now!
