When Glenn Jones is not running his t-shirt and art print business with his wife Julia or working on multiple projects he’s hanging with his kids and thinking up new ideas for Kiwiana themed tees and prints. Glenn made time in his busy schedule to sit down and answer some questions for us.
What do you do?
I’m a graphic designer and illustrator, I worked in studios for 15 years before doing my own thing 10 years ago. These days I’m working on my t-shirt brand Glennz Tees and Glenn Jones Art but most of my time I’m chasing my 3 young kids.
What did you have for breakfast?
What’s currently on your walls at home?
I’ve got a Penny Stotter, Michael Smither and Tony Ogle prints and the rest is my stuff that I try to change a bit.
If you weren’t making art/doing what you do what would you be doing?
Trying to invent things.
– Running, running, running
– Buying toy cars and trucks for my son (and me)
Career highlight so far?
Having one of my t-shirts appear regularly on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ TV show. The exposure has been huge and a business learning curve for a whole lot of reasons.
Dream project or collab or both?
I’d like to design some toys/gadgets with a company like ZURU.
Plans for the future?
More of the same, I get a lot of enjoyment out of doing my own thing.
Build your dream concert. 3 acts you want to see live.
Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, Marvin Gaye.
