Richard George Davis is also known as StudioDavis and nighthawk101 on the internet. He’s a not so typical long moused haired and green eyed monster that lives under your bed and only comes out at night to feed on your bad dreams and nightmares… That was a lie, his eyes are blue and according to others he has gorgeous long curly hair, good cheekbones and an agreeable posture. He’s an enthusiast of Apple Macs, art, design, graphics, humour, music, history, alternate lifestyles, liberal views, science, technology, the cosmos and the wonders of life. He enjoys whiling away his free hours with reading, listening to podcasts and music while occasionally watching documentaries and science fiction television series when not creating personal artworks. Richard’s influenced by some of the more prolific yet controversial writers, social commentators and scientists of our time such as Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Stephen Fry, Derren Brown, Douglas Adams, Brain Cox, Penn Jillette and Salvador Dali.
