PAINTING / ILLUSTRATION / DESIGN
I’m an artist. The success of my creative strategy- in all disciplines- is the application of fundamentals, experience, and technique. Then it’s just a matter of choosing the right tools for the most impactful solution.
My career has required adaptability, which is reflected in my broad and versatile portfolio. You can choose what style you like, or mix styles, or we can work together to create something entirely new.
Concept/execution, product/package development, branding/ID, pre-press, color management, launches and campaigns. I’m great with lots of software, but I’m a downright monster with the Adobe Big 3.
Digital and traditional. Books, children’s books, comics, concept art, political cartoons, magazines, album art, storyboarding, product design, surface pattern, greeting cards, and more.
Concept to market, or anything in between. From loose mockups to typeface design to Museum-level color correction, you decide where to go and I’ll help get you there.
You bet. Email via the contact page or DM through Instagram. If an original has sold or it’s a digital piece, archival prints are either available or can be custom ordered.
Not currently. When I do, you’d contact me with your idea, a deadline, and any other details you deem pertinent. Commissions begin at $500 and escalate based on scale and complexity.
$100/hr. I’m amenable to negotiate by project (conditionally) or ongoing workstream, or by adjustable rate vis-a-vis print rights, residuals, barter, or common good value (i.e. non-profit).
I’m big picture and also meticulous, a multi-tasker, a fixer. I’m pragmatic, clever, prolific, and good-natured. I’m shy until I’m not. I like everyone, I respect hard work, and I like to help people reach their goals.
It’s harder, especially for exhibiting work, education, studio use, collaborations, etc. I’ve used this found time to build a studio in our barn, experiment with new work, and work on an illustrated novel.
On Instagram: @briandubina. It’s essentially a mix of portfolios, a sketchbook, and a place to offer tips to emerging artists. It’s a fast and fun vehicle, plus a great way for me to engage other creative folks.
That’s my best pal, Jack. He’s a Great Pyrenees mix, with me constantly, and the sweetest, most handsome dog ever. Who wouldn’t paint him all the time?
