The Artwork chosen for the cover by Le Cool Magazine - ELEMENTS Classical element – Many philosophies and worldviews have a set of classical elements believed to reflect the simplest essential parts and principles of which anything consists or upon which the constitution and fundamental powers of anything are based.
 Earth - Water - Air - Fire

. - SEKI -  Mutual Life  - Example of seki (mutual life). Neither Black nor White can play on the marked points without reducing their own liberties for those groups to one (self-atari).( Go Game ) Inspired from " Shibumi " - Hel's secret is his determination to reach that rare personal purity and state of perfection known as Shibumi. Originally published in 1979, Shibumi has made the greatest impact among Trevanian fans and remains today his most revered novel.

Your Lucid Dream 3 artwork really caught my attention. It is so creepy – just by looking at it. What is the meaning behind this artwork?

Composite creatures with human and animal elements are common in the mythology of many cultures. The snake has always been one of the most powerful and ambiguous symbols for mankind. That idea inspired me. This half snake creature represents the might, transformation, fertility, quest for immortality, death; divine and sinister sides, murderous and healing aspects, and the highest wisdom and deepest subconscious of the humankind who is the master of the world.

Aside from graphic design, what other related arts do you do?

My other areas of interest are: Photography, digital photography, Typography, short film-video art, etching and illustration. There seems to be no end to what can be done in the name of art. What is it that I can do? How much of it can I do? In which part am I? Does the material suffice in bringing out the imagination? Nature is perfect...I strive to achieve adequate simplicity. I am still searching...

What career would you be in today if you didn't pursue graphic design? Why?

I make a living from graphic design at the moment. There is a business side of the job. Aesthetic concerns are always there. Painting would most likely have been the second route. To be honest, I can't envision how I would make out in the art of painting. Criteria varies. Because in art, people are either lucky or unlucky depending on what part of the world they are in. There are so many talented people in the world. Today, talent is not enough to make a name. If you don't have the help of someone in higher places, personal efforts can only take us so far, not any further than that.
