About John Hines

John Hines has always had an interest in art. As a youth (12-18), my medium of choice was photography. When I was in college at Emory University, I studied mathematics, computer science and philosophy. I also took summer classes in photography, sculpture, pottery, and film editing. I moved to New Jersey to work at AT&T Bell Laboratories and received my Masters in Computer Science at Columbia University in New York City, NY; so I spent my professional life working on computer software, but I continued photography while living in the New England Area. When I moved to California, I worked at Netscape Communications; so, life was too busy for me to work on my art. Bouncing from start-up to start-up, I found I needed a creative outlet from work. What is Mr. Carrot? I worked on some concept art called Mr. Carrot (see As part of making the animation, the video, and editing it all, I started to get much more into Adobe Photoshop, Premier, Soundbooth for editing my weird little videos. Recently with Adobe Creative Cloud, I've evolved to use the CS6 product line (I highly recommend it). There is only so much work you can do with an existential carrot, so I also made some of my own concept art videos - see ). To help generate images for my videos, I wrote software to generate the sequence of images. So, yes; Mr. Carrot was the start of it all - but I've evolved, and so has he. Alien Invasion Yo ? I started working on some digital graffiti - see - which I call 'Alien Invasion, Yo'. Still experimenting with this. Computer Generated Art : I'm also trying to mix various mathematical concepts (see like the pythagorean theorem, fibonacci numbers, recursion, Pi, i and e, etc. to create art that is 'math visualized'. Some art I do on my iPad or Adobe CS6 - I like to mix the two My iPad art - see - for a number of pinterest boards done by hand using iPad2 and a variety of software packages you can use to draw with. Nothing is more satisfying than creating art with your fingers. Many of my freehand doodles are on FAA.

Expect to see a mix of photography, iPad art, and digitally created images down the road. Some times I stop for a while, since nothing comes out. Some times a lot comes out, and some of it is crap. Fortunately you don't see all of it. Hope you enjoy some of my pieces.

Sincerely, John Hines.
