Arcturus is a annual literary publication that is put out by the Writing Dept. at the college, each year the Graphic Design Dept. gets to compete for the cover design.
This years theme is 'water' so I went with a surreal take on the subject. The concept is by no means new, a local artist from the '80s created paintings with color on the outside and a b/w interior. I definitely like the contrast, though I'm sure they are looking for something with more sophistication.
I've promised my wife that I would come up with something new for the back cover - the dog floating in deep water gave her anxiety...........
Beyond family, I'd say that art, sports and the quest to cook a great meal are the big priorities in my life.
I am 56 years old, and live in the Seattle area with my wife of 29 years. I have a beautiful daughter who shines as an EMT in Pierce County and I live in the suburbs, but truth be told, would rather be a city or country boy.
I love a good game of hoops and nothing makes me happier than the opportunity to draw and paint.....Time stops.
I like my brew dark, that goes for coffee and beer.
