Alex Likes to Draw at its core, is for anyone who enjoys illustrations, doodles, sketches, bizarre monster designs, spacemen, zombies, pin up girls, and everything else that goes in between. For the past several years, I’ve spent a lot of my time doodling, drawing, sketching and digging deeper into what makes me tick as an artist. I’ve been influenced by my childhood which has been filled with cartoons, robots, aliens, and monsters of all shapes and sizes.
I’m a graphic designer living in Albany, NY. I’ve been in the Graphic/Web design industry for 20+ years. Although I was professionally trained as a graphic designer, art has been and always will be a very important part of my life. I get an extremely high level of satisfaction from taking on a project from concept to completion. There is something to be said about my background before becoming a professional Graphic/Web Designer. I love fine art, photography, painting and drawing. In Graphic/Web Design there is something to be said about perfection and cleanliness, in fine art there is something to be said about the mistakes or the not so perfect drawing and painting. Seeing the brush strokes on a canvas or the pencil lines and the erasing on a sketch. This website is dedicated to all my fine art work, from Photography to the random sketch on a dinner napkin.
To sum it all up, I enjoy creating and unless I am being creative I am not happy.
Thanks for taking some time to get to know a little bit about me. If you’d like to get in-touch, I’d love to hear from you.
Media: Alex works in both digital and traditional formats - beginning with a scanned drawing and manipulating it in photoshop, illustrator or painter programs as well as the occasional 3d program. Alex is also fluent in traditional media, and is always experimenting with new and old techniques.
I am always interested in opportunities to speak about my work or the greater context in which it exists. This includes in-person or video talks with students, particularly those focused on new media. Commissions to create new work are also welcome.
I have limited availability for freelance commercial work in technical direction, art direction and creative direction.
In case you want to find out about my rates and availability for new work or you got an interest in one of my already existing pieces just send an email with a short description or ask for a list of available works.
