I'm an Australian Graphic Designer, currently working in web development and ignoring my illustration.
I have far too many hobbies jammed every which way into my life, but I try to make the most room for my art, furniture upholstery and refinishing, cooking, print making and reading. Gardening, embroidery, writing, and all the others, they get to compete for my nonexistent free-time.
I spend a lot of time here on Elftown trying to keep some of the more artistic community endevours up and running, but my favourites would have to be The Town Herald
, the mainstreet Featured Art
and redesigning et
. I've been working on the Herald for god knows how long (2006 maybe?) and though it seems to die with every issue, it has some sort of crazy life cycle of its own that keeps it running.
I especially love putting together the interactive PDF each issue, which to me is what the e-zine is all about. But hey, I'm a graphic designer *shrug* Of course I think a pretty layout is at the heart of things! :P
We welcome all contributions so if you're interested, head over to Herald Guest Submissions
About myself, and my art? Well, I don't get that much artwork done these days, but when I do it tends to be pretty girls with pretty hair. I guess my own vanity just shines on through :P Some of my private design work can be seen at http://www.jkcollective.com.au
and some (usually older) artwork at http://eep.deviantart.com
I use a mac pro, and a macbook pro 17", with a Wacom Cintiq or Graphire for all my digital artwork :)
