As a former scientist, Alex approaches art from a slightly different perspective, as a design problem or illustration project becomes a search for the right question, and the final image the answer. A lover of the process, Alex’s work is meticulous and iterative, taking advantage of the digital world by combining hand illustrated elements with photography, watercolors, and vectorized images.
