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 in my daily work as 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.

Warum bist du in Deutschland?
Seit immer, Kultur fasziniert mich. Deshalb ist es natürlich, dass ich Tausende Kilometer nach Deutschland gefahren habe: ein ganz neues Kultur für mir, und ein ganz neues Abenteur!
Now I work in Germany in data analytics and software engineering. My morning commute gives me just enough time to draw a few more people every day. Since I've been keeping count, I've drawn over 8,000 people in five years.
