A lot of your work has the perfect shading, does it take a lot of practice to be able to see where the shadows need to go in your work, or do you look at objects for help?

  • Describe your perfect burger
  • You've submitted almost over 600 designs - more than anyone else on the site, what keeps your creativity flowing? What advice can you give artists who have no idea where to start?
  • Majority of your designs are very simple illustrations with a cute factor, Is there a medium you wish you experienced more with?
  • A couple months ago you won an atrium contest and got to meet Will Ferrell, what was that like? Did he smell nice?
  • What's your biggest goal on Threadless for 2013?
  • What are some cool projects you're working on now?
  • Was there a certain theme you were going for in your collection?
  • What's your favorite unprinted design and why?
  • What was it like illustrating your first children's book in university?
  • If you weren't doing art as a career, what else do you think you'd see yourself as?

Why do fingers and toes wrinkle when left in water? Would you like fries with that?

Wow, he sounds quite posh. I don't sound posh. I sound like I come from Winterfell. Anyway, congrats.

YES! About time this happened! Big fan! Very deserving of a Made collection!

On average, how long would you say it takes you turn an idea around from the initial idea of a concept to finishing the illustration?

Thanks for answering my question! I cant believe that shading technique never occurred to me! You're awesome Aaron! Keep up the good work!

Finally got a chance to watch the whole vid. Nice job guys! I would have asked what beer Aaron was drinking cause I'm assuming it wasn't Threadless IPA (but probably something good since he bothered to use a snifter). Cool glass btw. Anyway, Jess seems like a bit of a lightweight the way her interviewing skills became impaired there towards the end ;) (maybe just my imagination). Meanwhile Bob and Aaron just smiled on, haha.

I actually had some strange polish beer, nothing fancy to be honest, glad you liked it, felt like I was stumbling on words a lot.

Nice interview. Are you an adventure time fan? (those finn&jake dolls on your bed must have seen some things). Also, if you like beer you should try some Belgian beers...
