I'm a self-taught visual artist and designer. I joined deviantart.com based on the suggestion of a friend who thought it would be a good idea, and I must say I have truly benefited from the experience because I have now been exposed to so many brilliant artists and communicators. These various ideas and techniques have really given me fuel to expand my thoughts and leverage of visual creativity. Thanks to everyone who has shared!

I love to capture the human form graphically in as many diverse styles as I believe I am capable, so I plan to have much more fun with DA.

Interests
If nothing else, art must be interesting. My mother used to tell me "it's hard to be distracted if you're not already focused," and what I took from that was that every distraction is not bad. Art often functions as  a diversion that causes someone to take a moment to look at or be made aware of something beyond themselves. Creating art, or a healthy distraction, is the domain of the artist, and exposing that art to the masses requires the courage to handle a response or lack of response. It took me some time to appreciate criticism for what it truly is - a response to a distraction. When you distract someone, be ready for a retort...lol.

We as artists are very used to having so much autonomy as creators, and in many ways we hide a piece of our souls in the art that we create. It makes us the gods or rulers of our little worlds of influence. We make the rules, set the boundaries and regulate the evolution of our work with practice and experimentation. But ultimately, the beauty of sharing with a collective and the risk involved in sharing one's work is the conversations that come as a result of making a statement. They may often be affirming and that is comforting, but sometimes a healthy dislike can truly serve the progression of new artistic thoughts.

Be open, because art is a dance of sorts in that one creates, one observes and the result may stimulate more or perhaps even less art. When creating art, I keep in mind the "form-follows-function" concept; however, when I view art the function of the art becomes reliant on the form being observed. Happy creating and lets get distracted!!!

Hi Bryan, saw your work at another deviantart page (it caught my eye). Have to say, really cool how you work. Reminds of a new fresh and clean style of abstract art or Art Deco. So easy on the eyes to view your work. To AWSOME (man, that's all I am trying to say-smile)!. Will keep an eye on ya. Best.

You are so talented and inspirational. I taught myself how to draw and continued to teach myself in art in general. I'm the same way in trying to be diverse in my "style". I don't want to be bogged down by one specific style and I think I'm growing in that. But seeing all that you've accomplished in your career, and in being self taught. AND in being from MD (like me! =D) is beyond encouraging! Thank you so much for making the step to share your work! It's inspirational for little buds like me! I learned so much by browsing your gallery. So please keep creating! I'm looking forward to your new pieces!

Much love from a fellow Marylander! =D
