I’m a Shanghai-born illustrator currently residing in Toronto, Canada.
How long have you been in the t-shirt world?
A little less than a year. I submitted my first design last October, and it just kinda spiraled downwards from there.
What would you suggest to an aspiring t-shirt designer?
I dunno. Work hard. Be creative. Eat plenty of fruits so you don’t get scurvy.
What’s a day in the life of AlanBao like?
My life is always rainbows and sunshine and unicorn-puppy-hugs, all the time, forever and ever. I poop kittens.
Mac or PC?
Post-apocalyptic world. No trace of human race. It happens that you’ve survived and managed to save…
3 tv-series: The Wire, Game of Thrones, and Community.
3 movies: The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
3 videogames: The only videogame I play is Team Fortress 2, so that’d be the one.
3 cds: Amnesiac (Radiohead), I’m Your Man (Leonard Cohen), Drift (Nosaj Thing)
3 books: Brave New World, The Collector, Dune.
One t-shirt: this one.
You are the governor of the world. What’s the first thing you would do?
I’d get rid of the world’s arsenal of nuclear weapons. By nuking my face into the moon.
You’ve just won a DeLorean time machine. Which historic period/time/moment would you like to visit?
Time travel is too iffy. I’d leave it be and just go eat a sandwich.
Say whatever you want to the Tee Tee community!!
Well, I’m currently in that uncomfortable phase of trying to live off of freelance work. It’s a little touch-and-go. So if anyone out there knows of any freelance illustration or design work that needs doing, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. This gun’s for hire. Also, I have a band.
