Iíve studied art and design as an apprentice and as an art school student, majored at the U in Western and Jewish history, and taught in and wrote on masonry technology. I work as a graphic designer, art director and a technical writer...and now I hope to enter the world of illustration. My tastes and techniques straddle the vintage past and an imagined future, where in-depth knowledge and classical training and skill will matter once again.
Getting Hold of Me
I keep to standard work week hours, EST, except when I'm totally off-line on the Jewish Sabbaths (Friday afternoons to late Saturday nights), holy days and festivals...or when at my rural hide-away studio for creative times. Check here for schedule notices and contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
News & Stuff
Probably around the time the film Blade Runner 2049 hits the theatres I'll be launching a bigger portfolio site on a personal server (not in a closet) at www.barzel.ca. Bigger and hopefully better. Here I'll still be featuring selected works, probably theme-based stuff or of my latest work.
