“Design is creative planning and communication that goes way beyond the base concept of ‘art’ and heads into the stratosphere of layering and redefining our physical/emotional/spiritual reality. I see the stuff around me as existing ‘illustration’ for the ‘designs’ I create to define my existence.
Sure I have used ‘found’ images, clip art, hand-lettered type, typeset typography, paintings, photographs, old tin cans, garbage found on a sidewalk, blah, blah, blah – what’s the difference, anyway? It’s all part of our world. The idea you are only allowed to be considered ‘quality’ because you draw with your hands versus compile with your hands, is pretty limited.”
