About the artistArt curated by
Word from jimiyo:
Boom Shaka Laka! Brian is a future famous illustrator. Get this shirt, get a vacuum sealer, seal it up, bury it in the ground, cash in 20 years later. Or buy it, wear it, make everyone envious! I'm not joking. Brian is Uber Talented.
Tell us about the design:
This design was based off one of my older watercolor works. I always wanted to put it on a shirt but never found the time to do so until now.
Tell us about yourself:
I’m 20 years old and reside in California. I enjoy sunsets, scrabble, playing guitar, and art :)
You have many awesome watercolor illustrations in your portfolio, were those for fun or business?
For fun :D
What is your process like?
Ideas start off in the sketchbook, or even on napkins. From there, I move onto a sheet of watercolor paper and plan as I go. Most of the time when I’m using watercolor, I’m experimenting and learning, so sometimes a finished piece comes out looking awesome!… and sometimes I throw it in a folder so it won’t see the light of day again. I like using ink, pens, and paper most of the time. As for designs, the computer is nice when you want to clean up your work and edit colors, but most of my designs start off with a scanned up ink-on-paper version of the finished design.
Have you always been naturally talented or did it take time and practice?
Sometimes it may seem that I’m naturally talented, but in reality its just a lifetime of practice. I started drawing when I was really young, and years and years of excessive doodling add up. But still, I had to practice a lot during the past 3 or 4 years to get to where I am now. Practice makes perfect.
