Don't be in a Hurry....
About the artist
Title of design:
Don't be in a Hurry…
Tell us about this design:
It's born from a reflection on modern society and the frantic rhythms of today's life, so it expresses the opposite message, "Don't be in a hurry…". I have united elements such as time (the cuckoo clock) and slowness (the snail) in a surrealistic way in monotone darks, representing all with an old style, and adding, at the end, some "pop colors" to create a bit of contrast.
Tell us about yourself:

What do you do for a living?
Employed in the transport sector.
How did you get your start in art?
I have similar experiences as everyone else as a child, around age 16 I got into graffiti culture but I stopped before I got my diploma. Some years later, out of curiosity, I first experimented with computer graphics and animation programs. I haven't attended formal art schools or taken drawing or graphic design courses. In the past, for various reasons I've become estranged from drawing, but it always returns in my life. Maybe it's destiny… I don't know!
What's your art process like, from initial sketch to finished product?
After I get an idea, I open Photoshop and throw down the first sketch with shapes and colors, and then I open more layers and go directly to create the end product. Often, some parts of the original idea changes to allow a greater aesthetic impact. The time of the production depends on the level of detail and the complexity of the combination of the different graphic elements.
