What's your favorite part of being on the design team?

We're designing art for an art-based company that sells art for other artists, what more could ya want?

What's your favorite movie?

The Prestige for sure. If you've seen it, you should watch it again.

What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?

  1. Book: "Letters from a Stoic" by Seneca
  2. A flint striker.
  3. A satellite phone.

Favorite Artist:

Jony Ive. He does the product design for Apple and teamed up with Steve (Jobs) starting with the original Macintosh. You know, that beautiful Mac with the colorful blue see-through back. He's fantastic.

Favorite Food:

My Italian grandmother's homemade white lasagna. She makes these thin sheets of lasagna. It's about 100 of them stacked they're so thin. Then every few layers has, in-between them, a little bit of cheese, or a little bit of shredded chicken. Then the whole thing is lightly baked in chicken broth and served in bowls.

One Pet Peeve:

People who pronounce "gif" as "jif." Listen, it stands for "graphics interchange format" not "jraphics interchange format." Also, you should use one space after a period. Two spaces is from when we had typewriters that couldn't automate the correct spacing after a period. Now we have computers. The technology is here.

What's your favorite part of being on the design team?

I love the creative freedom and working with a team of funny, positive people where everyone excels at something different. We complement each other very well in that regard. I compare a lot of the work I do to an exquisite corpse, where everyone contributes a part to create something unique. That includes TeePublic artists! It's so fun finding great work on the site feature to in our marketing.

What's your favorite movie?

"Headlines don't sell papes, NEWSIES sell papes." - Jack Kelly, Newsies

What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?

  1. The Harry Potter series (it counts as one thing when you get the box set.)
  2. Cozy blankies
  3. Booze

Favorite Artist:

Jenny Savilleand Egon Schiele. Aside from graphic design, I paint and they are my two biggest influences. David Carsonis my favorite graphic designer. Cheesemouse2is my favorite TP artist.

Favorite Food:

Bagels.

One Pet Peeve:

Being interrupted. And in a close second, people slurping or chewin' and chompin' their food really loudly. My basic etiquette rule is to just SHUT YA' MOUF.

What's your favorite part of being on the design team?

We are a small team with a lot of creative freedom and a collaborative spirit, and it’s great to spend our days helping other artists and designers make a living off their creativity!

What's your favorite movie?

101 Dalmatians (the original animated version). It was their first try with more abstract background art and rougher/unpolished pencil lines that give it a great handmade quality while still retaining the smoothness of motion that Disney films were famous for. And animating a hundred spotted dogs is a human accomplishment on par with the moon landing.

What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?

  1. Water purifier
  2. Gas generator
  3. Nintendo Switch

Favorite Artist:

Chuck Jones. He worked for Looney Tunes, yet got more comedy from a subtle glance at the camera than all the wackiness that the other directors were known for. And he incorporated more classical music and opera in his cartoons, which introduced them to generations of kids (of all ages).

Favorite Food:

Spicy Pad Thai from Wat Dong Moon Lek in LA. I used to live a block away from it and I miss it.

One Pet Peeve:

People who trudge up the stairs from a busy subway platform. It’s not that much harder than walking, people!

CHANELLE

Chanelle!

What's your favorite part of being on the design team?

I enjoy learning from my coworkers and becoming a better artist myself in the process. Not only am I surrounded by art that inspires me but also pop culture that makes my job ten times more enjoyable.

What's your favorite movie?

Spirited Away. I’ve seen it so many times that I can quote every single line and know where every sound is. 

What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?

  1. My Dog…Can I bring my dog?
  2. A Machete
  3. My guitar.

Favorite Artist:

I follow a lot of different artists on Instagram. I don’t have a favorite because I love all of their styles. A few examples are: loisvb, shardula, pernilleoerum, kushinov_ilya, and picolo.  

Favorite Food:

My favorite food is my Mom’s Pernil. That lady can cook!

One Pet Peeve:

Disorganization. I hate being in a messy area.

Favorite GIF: 

I love all spongebob gifs. 

JERRY

Jerry!

What's your favorite part of being on the design team?

Oh man, what don't I love about being on the design team!?

What's your favorite movie?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze; Rush Hour 2; Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back; all of The Lord of the Rings; Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (let's face it, all of the Potter movies); The Fast and the Furious 1-8, Scream is great, Friday the 13th 1-8, Iron Man, etc...

What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?

  1. Wi-fi
  2. Enough money to open up a McDonalds
  3. My Girlfriend because I would never be able to run a McDonalds alone.

Favorite Artist:

My favorite artist, I would say, is myself, but thats a little s---y. I honestly don't have one. I love a lot of cartoon shows, so I guess all of those artists. Definitely Steven Sugar though, who is the background designer on Steven Universe, those backgrounds are legit gorgeous.

Favorite Food:

Cheesecake and a #7 at McDonalds (10 piece chicken nuggets with a Coke or a sweet tea, depends how my sugar is that day), and definitely buffalo pizza.

One Pet Peeve:

Christ, what doesn't piss me off? Nail biters, bad smells, loud chewers, slow drivers, pathological liars... there are too many pet peeves to list.
