Artworks and Graphic Design

An often overlooked aspect of my work, a passion and an interest of mine is art and graphic design work. I don’t get to do this kind of work much anymore but i pursue the interest outside of my career. You can’t have anything worthwhile without art and design; it’s critically important to our culture and inspires then shapes our gadget-strewn world. Knowing that art and design manipulate our every waking thought and moment is an awareness IQ test that not everybody can pass.

I’ve put some examples of the kind of work I do below.

Painting is an art form i have little experience of but it is an incredibly expressive medium when you are in it up to your elbows. The trick to painting  makes no sense: you have to paint what is there but at the same time allow your notions of what needs to be recorded change the way that truth is presented.  In other words, it’s a drafting error to draw fingers as if they are round tubes, but its artistic interpretation to do it deliberately.
