 Darren Berry is one half of the genius behind Lifestyles of the Poor and Unknown (, as well as creative conglomerate Southend's Young Creatives, which is aimed at promoting young creative talent (designers, artist, photographers etc) and introducing them to contacts, allowing them to collab or get work placements. And he's also a complete Einstein when it comes to making buff visuals (check his work here So yeah he's pretty much a hero right? Anywayzies here's what he had to say when we asked him a few questions.

What do you do?
Im a Graphic designer of sorts, I dabble in club promotion, run a network called Southends Young Creatives, and paint graffiti when your not looking...

If you weren’t doing this what else would you be doing?
Definitely a rapper...

Is beauty in the eye of the beholder?
You would have to ask my girlfriend that, she's stayed with me for eight years and I'm totally punching above my weight..

Who do you think gets 'it' wrong?
I dunno who I dislike at the moment, I guess everyones doing thier thing and if they've got a passion for it good on them... I'm sorry that's lame.

Who/what inspires you? 
Ed Roth - My dad builds Hot Rods, and I got brought up around Hot Rod art, Ed Roths illustrations inspired me to start drawing and they still have the same effect today..
Nicolas Malinowsky - His collages are rad. 
Stephen Powers - He's been doing the 'love letters' project in Philadelphia recently (you may have seen it in creative review) if you havent seen it, check it out.
Horphe - Pure graffiti madness, check him out.
Jack Siegel- Ran the skullset blog, I like his photos.
Apart from that my friends are a constant source of insperation..

Does sex sell?
I guess it depends what your sellling, but being a man, yeah probably....

Dream fuck-buddy?

Favorite song to make-out to?
Anything by simply red.

Hottest blog?
Of course yours girls!! Totally mine! And my girlfriend's if she ever updated it...

Celebrity Spanking: Hot or not?
It's the new black.

Would you ever make a sex tape?
I made one, it was a flop...

Anything else?
Yeah, if you jumped on a bullet train would you stay in the same spot? That question has plagued me for years.
