This month’s Legend comes from an artist that we feature often, Arinesart. You can read our interview with him below.

 1. Who are you and where are you from?
I’m Arinesart (Charlie, or Carlos, in the short distance) and I’m from Madrid, Spain.

2. What got you into designing T-Shirts?
Nothing fancy. I was looking to buy some cool tees when I found about Threadless, and similar sites, at that time. I was running EXTRA LOW on money then. So it was kinda 2+2 made 4.

3. Where did your artist name come from?
Once more, nothing fancy about it. It’s my surname + the word ‘art’ :/ I was already using that name as an industrial graphic designer, and think it still works for this stuff. In fact, now that you ask (LOL) I really think more people in the tee design business should use true names. I mean, it’s your work, put your name on it. But I digress…

 4. Where do you get inspiration for your art work?
Everything pop culture, geeky and/or nerdy. That means TV, movies, comic-books, literature, art, steampunk, etc. Also, clouds, trees, forests, deep space, nebulas, the world of photography, or anything else I can translate into a photoshop brush.

5. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
The super power of memory: That way I can remember those fantastic ideas I got for designs every time I don’t have my cellphone or a post-it near to write up them :/ The only thing worse than not having new ideas is to remember that you had one, and that you’re not able to remember it later xD

6. What’s your favorite Zelda game?
Ogggh! Hard one! I hate you guys for asking this one!! xD

If I have to answer as a designer, I’d probably say ‘Twilight Princess’ or ‘Majora’s Mask’, because the art on those two is amazing, but it’s also different (and kinda better and more detailed) from the rest of the games. But, as a gamer, the feeling that (at their respective own times) ‘A Link to the Past’ and ‘Ocarina of Time’ made me live… those two are probably the two Zelda games that are truly masterpieces to me. But, I could tell about the originality of ‘Wind Waker’, the fun in the Game Boy games, blah, blah. blah… you know what I mean…

 7. If you had one piece of the Tri-Force, which piece would it be?
I’m old enough to say, without fear to being not hype-ish, that I’d probably would choose Wisdom, lol.
