my independent artist, alter ego
And then there's the stuff I WASN'T asked to do as part of my day job. The down-time stuff, the "side hustle", the "wouldn't it be cool if..." type of design. Under my artist name djkopet, many of the crazy ideas floating around in my head come to life. Communicating and connecting with people through art has always been the draw for me personally, and this just offers another outlet for that. There's no feeling like putting an idea down on paper, then having people want to display that idea across their chest or hang it on their wall.
