DIGITAL ART

For years (decades, actually!) I worked in the creative departments of advertising and marketing agencies. But I wasn't an art director or designer. I was a copywriter. And because I was a writer, my office-supplied Macs didn't have fancy-schmancy art/design programs. I was a writer, so I was given Microsoft Word.

However, because I'm a curious and creative fellow, I began experimenting with Word, and I soon discovered the wonderful graphic possibilities of using this seemingly benign word-processing program for artistic/visual purposes. Here are some of the results of my creative tinkering.

These large-scale pattern-based wall hangings are inspired by Persian rugs and Islamic tiles.
