Brian crash landed in Ireland 26 years ago. Reared on whiskey and punk rock weirdos, he never had a chance to become anything but an artist.
I love horror, and all the gothy creepy things of the world. But I like using really bright colours to stop things feeling too heavy or serious, like, it’s satan but she’s drinking a mai tai.
“Well right now it’s my iPad, just for convenience. But I want to get back to traditional paint and brush stuff. Digital work is great but there’s so much help with that, if you can create a cool image with just your hands that’s so much more admirable to me.”
Well, as Ghandi once said: just do it. Like, literally just do it. Do it every day and all the time. You gotta put the hours in and hone your craft. There’s no shortcuts to being talented and it’s amazing how much you improve when you commit to working really really hard. Whatever it is that you do, I really believe in that cheesy saying that’s something like, “make something every day even if it sucks”.
What is your favourite piece of art?
“Uh, me obviously.”
