PAINTING / ILLUSTRATION / DESIGN
I‘m a creative problem solver. I believe tools shouldn’t categorize an artist or set limitations on a solution, and in working to master as many tools as possible. I also metal sculpt, build furniture, and make candy!
I enjoy many styles so my portfolio is a really collection of portfolios. You can choose what style you like, or mix styles, or we can work together to create something entirely new.
Product development, branding/ID, layout, pre-press, color correction, ad 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.
Usually, yes. If I can’t, I can likely refer you to another artist. 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 meticulous, a multi-tasker, a fixer. I’m pragmatic, clever, prolific, a deep well (and my wife thinks I’m funny). 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 my quarantine time to build a studio in our barn, and take more risks with new works to find untapped revenue sources.
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?
