I do illustrations for this publication in the States, when asked to illustrate a Q&A article with Steven Heller and Tim Hoover covering design/entrepreneurship I looked at the idea of abstract thinking morphing into concrete action, so the image has the idea bubble becoming a physical entity. I had also just taken up welding with MIG and oxyacetylene  so it was on my brain… lots of hot dangerous fun welding metal.

I was excited to do an illustration connected to Steven Heller, he is a bit of graphic design guru with the publication of many well researched and presented titles on the subject. In fact his work is likely referenced more than anyone else on the design form.
