Interactive Color Series
Art based on optically mixing colors. In this series, I use very thin colored lines interspersed with a different set of very thin colored lines that are optically mixed to form new colors, shapes, and patterns. Artwork (all digital) is 14" x 14", signed and numbered.
Patterns, designs, and compositions are derived from “WonderWord” puzzles, and color is used to accentuate, highlight, or link the graphic forms and patterns within each composition. Artwork (all digital) is 15 ½" x 15 ½", signed and numbered.
100 days of Sudoku + Paint by Numbers animation Series
Combine 100 days of Sudoku solutions with Paint by Numbers into an animation.
• Completed 100 sudoku puzzles
• Created the digital files of the sudoku solutions (nine sections stacked three rows of three containing nine squares each)
• In order to color the individual numbered squares as in the Paint by Numbers concept I needed to decide what color was #1, what color was #2, etc.. I wanted some logic to the order of colors and to do this I looked to the visible light spectrum where the visible light wavelengths range from 380nm to 780nm. I divided this range by nine to get each colors wavelength with number one being 380, and number nine being 780. I then needed to convert each wavelength into its corresponding RGB (red, green, blue) color value, and to do this I used an online Wavelength to Color calculator found at
Seeing is believing. I use digital tools to create my conceptual abstract compositions, patterns, and op art to show what I see. I inject color when needed to give a point of focus, accentuate a pattern, or to optically mix color creating new colors and shapes within my compositions, so you can see what I see.
In my Interactive Color series, I use very thin colored lines interspersed with a different set of very thin colored lines that are optically mixed to create new colors, shapes, and patterns. In my WonderWord series patterns, designs, and compositions are derived from “WonderWord” puzzles, and color is used to accentuate, highlight, or link the graphic forms and patterns within each composition.
I am a multi-disciplined award winning graphic designer. I began my career as an art director at Regis McKenna Advertising in Palo Alto CA, creating print collateral for such companies as Apple Computer, HP, National Semiconductor, Intel, Visicorp, TRW, and many others. I have also successfully managed my own graphic design firm (BeggsDesign) in Palo Alto CA for 20+ years. Additionally I have served as design manager and co-creative director at Tandem Computers, marcomm manager and creative director for the system division at Adobe Systems. For 5+ years I also taught a course at San Jose State University – senior level graphic design. Over the years I have won hundreds of awards for corporate and brand identities, packaging, annual reports, and print collateral, as well as having my work published in design books and magazines.
