Alex makes drawings which attempt to capture the essence of an idea through body language and an expressive line. He is as happy working conceptully as making 'lifestyle' images and revels in drawing everyday objects out of their original context. Part traditional drawing, part digital collage, his work has been used over the years in everything from Newspapers & Magazines to Packaging & Murals.
