There has always been a personal interest to see how close a personality can be brought together with a genre, or whatever background may define them.

I like to envisage how an individual can become part of what surrounds them, yet still be propelled forward.

Camouflage has been an gratifying vehicle to drive my idea. I try to break down the image of, for example, musicians into a vector and over lay that with a camouflage background. 

Colour balance is an mandatory concern. I don't want the vector to become lost in the camouflage - but I do want it to be just visible.
