Offical Website

I've been fiddling around with the coding and design of my site for awhile now, and I think I've finally reached the point where I am happy with the look and feel of the site. I'm really happy with how I integrated a drawing with the navigation links. Here's a link to my site: http://artofbrianluong.com/. You can also find a link to my site on the right side of this blog.

Mintees Tee of the Day - Into the Thicket, Part 2

I was happily surprised when I logged onto Mintees after coming home from a great show. I made a black variant of my Into the Thicket Part 2 illustration, but I don't remember posting it here.

Here's a link to the design on Mintees: http://mintees.com/tees/341773-into-the-thicket-part-2

Dead Fuzz Big Skull Collab: The Eye

Here's my contribution to the collab project over at Dead Fuzz. Not sure why I colored the gem pink, I guess all the other colors I tried out just didn't work as well. I really like how the beads turned out!

Remember, remember...

Here's some V for Vendetta for today, on the 5th of November. I'm surprised with where this illustration went; It was intended to be a simple black and white illustration, but then I upped the color count to 4 (I was in the mindset of creating a silkscreened illustration) and filled the mask with color, annnd then I painted in the background and ended up using a bunch of low-opacity color overlays and gradients...

This piece reminded me a lot of a project I did about a year ago for my composition class where I used the same process of using low-opacity color layers and whatnot (here's the older piece I'm referring to: endangered-cranes). Even though I deviated so much from my original idea, I'm happy with how this piece turned out. It made me realize that I've been restricting myself too much by thinking in terms of silk screen applications and that I haven't been exploring as much as I should with new techniques outside the box.
