Fashion While Hacking: Guy Code Art Dept

Added on by Patrick Hosmer.

If you've seen Guy Code on MTV2 you'd know the show is chock-full of delicious instructo-animations. These visuals are created by a small team of highly disciplined artists who spend countless hours honing their craft... kicking a bean-filled sack to one another next to a freight elevator. 

Meet the team. 

Austin is an Illustrator and he also runs the team's Drawn From Memory blog.

Mister: What's your favorite part of working on Guy Code?

Austin: Breakfast.

Mister: Do you have a favorite hack move?

Austin: Tres Leches. That's when three guys go for the sack at the same time and touch toes.
