By 1990 I had left the advertising business – mainly because it was killing me. You name it, it was probably problem for me. My background in computer generated art and video graphics landed me a job at a software developer, then a hardware company and finally a big multi-national who did all of the above. Turns out my creative skills translated well into analytical thinking and I found myself working on product design, customer consulting and R&D support. Kind of a nice change from cranking out video graphics but it didn’t really support my art making (or any that was particularly good). Call this my lost decade.
