I consider myself primarily an illustrator. I never quite fit in with others, so I grew up isolated and found much of my comfort in movies, comic books, music, and books. My artistic influences include fantasy illustrators from the 'Brandywine' school of Howard Pyle to the best comic book artists of today. I get my inspiration from such widely diverse sources as the absurd, music, classic movies, myth, pin-up, fantasy literature, and my Catholic sensibilities.
For a number of my original pieces, feel free to purchase some more modestly priced ones at my Etsy page. I may be adding more as time goes on. https://www.etsy.com/shop/bryanbartist?ref=hdr_shop_menu
More than willing to do commissions, I am adept at portraiture of people and pets, landscapes, painting buildings and other such standard fare. It is with greater pleasure that I use portraiture or landscape as a jumping off point for creating something more unique for a client according to the client's interests.
I am willing to do nudes of adult females and males. I love the lines. For religious works, the nude should depict either original innocence, souls in torment, or be appropriate to expressing Biblical narratives such as the crucifixion. For non-religious art, it is a case by case basis. It should not depict any direct sexual content and should not be either erotic or pornographic. But as I am 'changing my brand' so to speak and moving away from these kinds of things, any nudes I have done in the past are now in password protected galleries. If you need to see them, send a private message to me and I'll let you have the passwords.
