Eikes approach to his work is driven by two opposing facets of his personality. With foundations in graphic design, he favors clear graphical imagery based on a solid vision and direction. But there is also his adventurous side which draws him to vibrant situations where he has to trust his instincts and depend on raw emotion. This combination is both unique and compelling and allows him to articulate his perfectionism while demonstrating his highly original approach to capturing that poetic moment and revealing its magic.
