I created a digital art portrait of Noam Chomsky it is called Extended Chomsky. I enjoyed making it the way I would enjoy making portrait art of a family member or very close friend. Chomsky is celebrated as the father of modern linguistics. Beyond his linguist insight, he has mastered philosophy, cognitive science, logistics, and in time became a political commentator and anarcho-syndicalist activist.

If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.

Noam Chomsky

Linguist, MIT

Noam Chomsky is a beacon for those lost to words and in need of meaning or an intuitive definition of what is actually happening at any given moment. He has always raised the questions that lower our heads and heavy our hearts. Creating artwork in honor of one of my all time favorite people on the planet and a constant reminder to seek enlightenment and inspiration, is a wonderful endeavor.
