About the artist
Second in Our Black Rock Collective Series is Bramish. A true gentleman with sharp wit and a handsome face. If you don't read his blog then you should because it's is rib ticklingly good. Also look at that shirt, it screams "I am awesome, abide by me". Bramish I salute you!
First of all how did you enter the circle of awesome known as the Black Rock Collective?
I actually don't remember. I think Dave (Staffell) was already a member and gave me the heads up about it a couple of years ago, and then I got an email inviting me in. I think. It's all a bit hazy.
Tell us a little bit about your ‘BRC series’ design.
I love the Hulk. I love geometrical shapes. I was joking around with a Hulk drawing I'd done a while back and produced this. It had been left gathering dust on my hard drive but I've always liked its simplicity (and of course its hilariousness) so I tweaked it a bit, and here it is.
Which BRC project has been the most interesting to you as an artist?
The card deck. Whilst working on our collab collages has been fun in the past, I appreciated the opportunity to produce a specific individual piece, as part of a group project. I enjoyed the challenge of coming up with a final design from something as open to interpretation as a number and suit.
Who is your favorite member of the BRC?
Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka.
Which members of the BRC have you met?
Myself, Staffell, Tonteau and Adrienne all lived in London at the same time so I've met those guys a few times, as well as Amanda and Jan Willem when they were over for visits. I also met Phil and Jublin when I was in California a couple of years ago.
Give us one piece of inside gossip on the BRC.
Leon is a woman. But what a woman.
Do the BRC have a secret handshake, if so what is it?
Yes. It's pretty complex and amazing.
What’s next for the BRC?
We're going to develop some kind of secret handshake.
Which member of the BRC would you most like to collab with?
I love Andy's (wullaguru) illustration style and character design and when I eventually find the time and some half-decent ideas I'd love to write a story for him to illustrate. Same goes for Chris (Raid71). I've always wanted to produce some illustrated kids' books but my skills aren't up to the pictures part. Those guys are going to make me us rich.
