"Layers and dense imagery are some things that inspire me recently," says Simon Cosmas, aka Simon Rieber. "I chose the title ALT from the keyboard as I feel the digital world can be an escape from the real world. I love seeing how cartoon characters overlay each other, creating completely new scenery. Each layer can live individually, but if you put them all together you get this fulfilling sense of completeness."
