Enigmatic Patterns tells the story of how Alan Turing changed the world.
At the age of 41, Alan Turing died of cyanide poisoning, found in his bed holding a poisoned apple. The world lost one of its greatest minds, but his legacy lives on in every computer we use, the theories behind the personal electronics we take for granted first envisioned by a shy, imaginative man with a wry sense of humor who used to practice his scientific lectures in front of his teddy bear.
When Alan Turing first began dreaming of machines, a computer was a person sitting at a desk with a pencil. In attempting to capture the aesthetics of that time, I’ve gone back to traditional methods, using pencils, dip pens and brushes with India and sumi ink on watercolor paper. After a year of research and writing, Enigmatic Patterns has moved on to the design and illustration stage, with a planned publication date of December 2015.
