Brianís multifaceted appreciation of the arts and his refined creativity
have resulted in several fields of interest. These include drawing, illustration, logo design, portraiture, and (to some degree) photography.
A current, working portfolio is presently best viewable over at Flickr. Links to some of those sets are presented here.
It's everywhere and all around us. Not a single glance around a public place or a private room is likely to be devoid of some graphic designer's work, in some form. And because of this, Brian’s observant eye is fascinated by the manipulation and influence its artists employ. As such, he endeavors too to harness the power.

If there's a single artistic skill Brian has honed more than any other, it is that
of portraiture with mechanical/drafting pencils using various lead
softnesses on 9"◊12" paper. There's a distinct interest
in lighting and contrast, as well as shifting balance between photorealism
and a rough sketch technique, often in the same composition.
The ubiquitous logo doesn’t need much of an introduction.
Its purpose is clear and a well-designed brand icon is a stamp on the
memory. As such, the clever balance is vital between simplicity in
appearance and refined, richly connotative, subtly complex detail.
This dichotomy is fascinating.
For over 10 years, Brian has been desigining websites such as this current
version of worldbri.com with nothing more than Photoshop slices and
HTML tables, the main focus being on the tastefulness of the page and simple
coding, not flashy graphics and advanced programming languages. (Still
looks good, though, right?) View
Also, experience Brianís work in other media:
The music is intelligent, clever, emotive, humorous, introspective,
and witty; independently produced, acoustic and electric guitar-based
and/or piano-based singer/ songwriter alternative/ folk/ rock.
Lyrically, the oft-tackled subjects include love and infatuation, or
philosophy and related ranting; all with extended metaphors, incessant
word-play; and sure to give your intellect a headache. Listen

Brian’s video shooting and editing skills are still in their early, developmental stages; they, in addition to some music
performances and other fun bits, are currently on display at youtube.com/brimaxian.
It’s a venue to be creative, so surely Brian is in attendance to contribute to the internet-wide conversation. Watch
