M.C. Escher was...
M.C. Escher was a bit of an enigma. He was an artist whose works had a technical precision, a visionary with quantitative methods. M.C. Escher embodied art + math.
My name is Morgan Randall. I'm a guy who loves to learn. I like solving hard problems, which led me to study math at UC Berkeley. At UC Berkeley, I enjoyed the labyrinth of theorems that is Complex Analysis and the philosophical curiosity of Set Theory.
I'm also a big fan of showing rather than telling. I've been drawing for about fifteen years, and I like expressing complex ideas in visual forms. You can get so much across with only pictures. I usually draw with pencil and pen, but have come to love Copic markers. I purchased a Wacom drawing tablet recently, and can't get enough of digital art now, either.
I'm doing research all the time. I love doing work across disciplines and infusing my art skills into projects. Even during my daily work while I was a data scientist.
And yes, I do draw with both hands at the same time. You might have seen me drawing at Venice Beach, or maybe we met on a train, or maybe I drew you while volunteering at a local hospital. If I drew you, you can read a lengthier bio about me here.

Gravitation, by M.C. Escher
Drawing with Two Hands:
Bist du noch in Deutschland?
Leider nicht. Aber meinem Zeit da in Deutschland war richtig schön. Zwei und Halb Jahren war ich in einem kleinen Dorf in Bayern wegen dem Arbeit. Aber zurzeit, finde ich mich irgendwo noch weiter: in Malaysia!
After working in Germany as a data scientist for two years, I've come to Malaysia for work in IT. My journeys on the weekend into the city give me enough time to draw a few more of the people I share this world with. Since I've been keeping count, I've drawn over 12,000 people since 2013.
You can learn even more about me here (FAQs).
You can follow me on Instagram (to see my adventures in drawing thousands of people).
Or follow my other Instagram (to see the things I draw when I'm not drawing smiles).
You can buy me a coffee.
Or you can send me an email.
Or, you can just keep browsing my website :)
