I am a self-taught designer with more than 15 years of experience in the graphic arts. I use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Lightroom to realize my visions. My source material is varied, including generated graphics, Creative Commons and public domain imagery, and my own photography.
From 1999 to 2007 I worked in the information technology industry as a front-end developer and user interface designer. It was purely corporate work, bland and uninteresting to my artistic soul, and I haven’t kept any of it. Eventually I quit and went to university—but I did not give up on design. I set myself free and refused all paying work, preferring to devote myself to my own creative projects. In this time I completed more than 50 album covers, most of which were produced for my record labels. The vast majority of these projects feature a “maximal” approach to design.
Here are a few examples (and check out my design portfolio for more):
