22 May 2018: The Evolved Publishing Team welcomes its newest artist and illustrator.
I am particularly fascinated by the relationship between art and human perception. Studying art is like engaging in an interrogation with nature, constantly trying to figure out if our assumptions about the world are in any way accurate. Even if such an aspiration may never be fulfilled, there is an excitement in embarking on the venture of unravelling the opacity of the universe.
I believe writers and artists share this desire intimately. I enjoy working with authors on their book covers since it gives me an opportunity to understand the myriad ways in which the authors express the world they have imagined, or interpret the world around them. I love art and I love words, and I find it satisfying to develop a book cover that resonates with the writer. In addition to art, literature is one of my passions, and I am an aspiring writer myself.
I initially chose to study Computer Science, but the lure of creative pursuits proved too strong to resist. I experimented with animation as a means of expressing the stories I wanted to tell, but ultimately I found illustration to have the strongest appeal for me, and I decided to explore it in a self-taught manner. For the past few years I have been working as a self-employed illustrator based in the UK, designing book covers as well as environments for comics.
Please feel free to reach out to me through any of the links in the contact section. I’m always up for any discussions about books, art or philosophy.
