Alan Bernard is a self educated Google junkie that runs his humble business from home. He does stuff like web and graphic design and is also currently in the midst of setting up his own apparel company.
It all began when he decided that he wanted to stop working for someone else because although the pay was good, he was not able to satisfy his other needs, like proper sleep and self enrichment. Well, he still does not sleep much, even lesser at times, but he is much more happier these days, and walks around with a permanent grin on his face, which can be awkward sometimes.
Alan loves stuff like street art and illustrations, and that’s why the site looks like what it looks like. Mosts of the artist he interviews and writes about are people he looks up to, modest celebrities of their own profession. They would never admit to that, of course, because well, they are modest. He runs this site because he appreciates their work and would like to share it with the world. Alan hopes and wishes that these articles and interviews would work as a source of inspiration for others as well as himself and works as a guide to design and creative nirvana.
The only way he benefits from this is that every time he posts an interview, review or an article, it satisfies his passion and works as a motivational tool. Well, some of these artists also send him some cool merchandise from time to time, so that’s a big fat huge incentive too!
When he is not online, he’s probably playing football, watching football, at his screen printing area, eating his mom’s tasty dinner, or catching up on that thing people call sleep.

More About Alan Bernard
This site is designed, coded and updated by me, Alan Bernard.
I live with my girlfriend Shirley, my hyperactive dog named John Doe and a fat hungry cat named Dexter [named after the tv series serial killer] in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I currently work from home as a Web and Graphic Designer. I strive to achieve web standards, code validations, and aesthetic nirvana.
Starting out, I was strictly a designer with no educational background, but have steadily progressed thanks to initiative, perseverance and a little luck.
