Joe Dauz started code development in the late 70s with Xenix to the mid-90's working on Macromedia Director Projects and had some success as a fine artist. In 95 got a chance to Run a web site for my brothers drum company and gave up "Gallery Art" for "Internet Art".
Art for the web is a tricky business, not only are there design constraints In the media itself, you need to know the client and their end users.
