- State your name and occupation: Colin James Shawcross / illustrator
- What the F does Non-F’N Heinous mean? Non heinous is a term from one of my favorite movies, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey! Threw the F’N because I’m from Philadelphia , so why the F not?! Haha
- What’s your set up? aka Your Tools of the Trade: I run my entire drawing set up off a wacom cintiq 13hd via photoshop! Hasn’t let me down yet!
- What were the things growing up that influenced your art style? Late 80s early 90s cartoon and toy culture. Skateboard art. Record covers!
- Greatest Philly sports memory? Being able to share the Super Bowl 52 win with my dad! Definitely not being bottomless in a master shake costume in 2008 when the Phillies won…and running into my dad haha
- Favorite music to draw to? Currently I’d have to say NAILS. But NOFX is a go to because the catalog is so vast.
- Favorite Philly food group? Meat. Cheese. Bread. Beer. Kielbasa.
- If you were a pierogi- what kind of pierogi would you be? A bacon wrapped jalapeño popper (please don’t steal my idea czrews!)
- What position would you play if we were running the Brotherly Shove? Right guard, or left guard. Anywhere honestly. Throw me in so I can poke some eyes or bite an ankle, even sneak a beer at the bottom of the pile. Either way 6 points are coming and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.
- What are some of your favorite projects you had this year (besides this one) I would have to say the Imprint Food Truck, The current Green Rock Pierogi Week art, a Beer Zombies label we won an award for, and the Sweet Lucy’s BBQ menu boards!
