I have a prejudice against form over content and a despair of people who lack the will to see beyond surface appearances.
I admire those that confront their fears through constant challenge and risky ventures. Having the courage and stamina to choose to make their own lives difficult. I like people in general though, all sorts, I couldn’t draw cartoons if I didn’t. Too often we look at a person and see our memories of them or our first impression based on our prejudices instead of seeing the reality of who is standing before us at that very moment.
All my work in drawing, graphic design, illustration, the web, multimedia, and interpretation has always included an attempt to try and prod people a bit more awake at some level or another. All of us, me too, and too often, are slumbering through life peering at the world through our reflection rather than trying to see clearly and engage the real thing.
Those that can should have children. It wakes you up and helps you see what we’re missing through their eyes – afresh.
The problem is – how to keep keeping awake?
