HugoHugo has made a name for himself creating spot-on parody and beautifully rendered portraits with dynamic layouts and a wicked sense of humor. His tees and posters are distinctly his own, and have been shared across social media by fans and celebs alike. When he’s not creating tees and posters, he’s creating custom toys with spectacular sculpts. TeeFury is delighted to have him as a regular contributing designer, and we’re shining a spotlight on some of his amazing work so you can grab a piece of it for yourself!
TF: Tell us a bit about yourself — How did you first get started in art?
HH: Legend tells mom delivered me prematurely as I was drawing on the walls inside her womb. But seriously, I just decided I wanted to follow art professionally as a career later, I think I was like 10.
TF: What are some favorite subjects you like to draw or things that keep you motivated to keep creating?
HH: I grew up with superhero comics and games and anime. There are so many movies and series these days created for fans like us that keep me motivated.
TF: When you’re not creating tees and posters, you focus your creative energy into custom toys — can you tell us about the process?
HH: I make them out of thin air, with magic! No, that’s not accurate, it takes a lot of sweat and putty and paint and despair. From the idea to the final paint and polish, it can take quite a while. I’ve still got some in the queue that I’ve been working on for ages!
TF: From MMA champions to Teenage Warheads, you’ve had a few celebrity names find and applaud your work; has there been one that you were especially excited about?
HH: I absolutely love everyone that posts a pic with my art 🙂 Of course when the muses do it, I get even more butterflies…
TF: Do you have something you’re working on now?
HH: One hundred billion ideas occur simultaneously inside my mind all the time. But If you wanna know what I’m doing RIGHT NOW, I’m working on a Daredevil-inspired piece — hopefully it will be done by the time this goes up 🙂
TF: Where can people see more of your work?
HH: Follow me on Facebook to find more!
