He was born and raised in a 1970s Leicester (middle of England, middle of nowhere). Early ambitions to become either an entomologist (insects), paleontologist (fossils), space ship model maker or astronomer never quite happened.
So he studied graphic design in Leicester and Manchester (BA Hons, that sort of thing).
During the 1990s and 2000s he worked in the Manchester music industry, performing graphic design and web design. He won a few web awards — for Portishead & Twisted Nerve Records.
He lives in Manchester, or rather Stockport. He likes biscuits.
He also kindly offered a free A2 print of your choosing to four lucky readers.
Paste a link in the comment thread to a photo of “your desk now” and I’ll randomly draw four winners on Friday (updating this post and sending you a ‘winner’ email). I might also publish your photos with a link to your website in an upcoming blog post.
Update: Friday 29 July
Happy to announce Karinya, Luis Nunes, William Btight, and Samantha as the lucky four. You’ve each been sent an email with instructions for collecting your free print.
Lovely prints, Gary.
