I’m a graphic designer sci-fi nerd. I’ve been designing since I was in high school. If something artistic was needed, everyone came to me. I made the playbill for our shows, the programs for our proms—people trusted me with wedding invitations, business cards—you name it. That has always been my thing. That, and science—figuring out how something works, and then showing someone else how cool it is.
Art is a kind of science. Getting the right mix of inks or pastels, or aligning the elements on a page just-so, can feel like alchemy. I love that last pop of color or line that goes into place, when I know I have something special. I love science and learning, and I love design. I never get tired of it. Time passes while I do it, and I don’t even notice. That’s how I know it’s what I’m supposed to be doing.
