1 - Introduce yourself:
“EAT, SLEEP, BRAINFART, REPEAT” Hi, I am sucker tom, a German creator of pics/gifs/sculptures with twists, reflective content, brainfuck or mindless shit.
2 - Which artists inspire you and why?
Especially for my work there are a bunch of great artists to get inspired from, I think to name them all there’s not enough space here, hehe. (it would be best to visit my Instagram account and open my following list) I also hope that I can inspire some people too with my work, even if its only to let the people laugh or to reflect it.
3 - What’s the most important thing to know about you? (3 most important things, not necessarily related to work)
I am a 1982’s kid who loves the 80s - 90s pop culture, movie/series, skateboarding, design, fashion, music, in sum we can say all the good things ; - ) When I have to describe myself with suitable insta-hashtags, I would choose #creative, #smart, #nice, but also #weird, #stupid, #lazy…a perfect balance isn’t it? My motto is: take yourself not so seriously.
4 - What qualities and skills should a designer have?
Quality and skills comes by trying, training and hard work,…its perfectly ok to do mistakes or failures,…it forms you and make you stronger and better, be inspired all day long (no blinkers), soak up everything like a sponge which is important to find your own style, try to be unique and different. And after that you come to my following list : -)
5 - What are you most proud of?
I started my creations just for fun and with no intentions,…but after a while I recognized that my work is getting more and more attention that I never expected. That’s what I’m really proud of, and wanna thank hereby all the people for this appreciation and motivation,…I’ll keep on!!!
