Who were your early photographic influences? How did they inspire you?
My biggest inspiration is Storm Thorgerson, the creator of a lot of album covers. When I was starting out, Ted Craig, like I mentioned before. I really like Douglas Hale, who's a digital collage artist. Also, I'm inspired by Salvador Dali, although he wasn't photography. I love the way that these guys represent metaphors and concept visually. Their work catches your eye, and as you continue to look, you notice the details, and what they're communicating.
What is the project or job that have you had the most fun and the least fun working on? Why?
The most fun was the album art I made for The Adaptive because he was so great to work with and it was more like a collaboration rather than a client-designer relationship. My least favorite was someone who contacted me when I was first starting out, before I knew what I was doing or how to communicate well. I did a lot of work for him, and he wanted a lot of revisions, and in the end he didn't pay me and he didn't use my work. Since then I've learned quite a bit, and I can communicate with clients better.
Do you have any digital arts philosophy of your own? If so, can you tell us what it is and why?
There are I few ideas that I work by: I try not to fall back on old ideas if I've hit a creative dry spell. Another one is that there's a difference between being inspired by someone and copying their work. Also, when I do work for someone, I give it everything because they've chosen me specifically and paid me to represent them.
Lastly, what is digital arts really about? How did it change your life?
It's about bring what's in my head into reality. It's a coping mechanism, a creative outlet, and a way of expressing myself. I feel that it gives me purpose, besides just getting paid. It's changed my perspective of the world. I've grown an appreciation for everything in nature, and I now see the artistic potential and beauty in everything I see.
