Graphic design is the paradise of individuality, eccentricity, heresy, abnormality, hobbies and humors.
Everything vanishes around me, and works are born as if out of the void. Ripe, graphic fruits fall off. My hand has become the obedient instrument of a remote will.
A graphic representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.

I can think of films that I'm producing right now that are extremely hard-hitting, graphic films, that nobody necessarily wants to see, graphic in terms of violence, of adult content and racial and historical subject matter.
Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
When I put together a graphic novel, I don't think about literary prose. I think about storytelling.
I like the idea of making big budget films with a heart. I like graphic novels more than comic books.
