I'm Brian. I'm a cartoonist and 2D animator living in NJ. I'm a
pretty big nerd (both figuratively and literally), though I can't
decide whether that's cool to admit to or not anymore.
What I’m doing with my life
Typical graphic design job by day, drawing by night (though there
is still a desk involved). Planning on making animated short films
(the dream is to make a tv show or something), but mostly my free
time consists of compulsive doodling.
I’m really good at
Being sarcastic, jackass! I kid. I've been told I'm funny(both
ha-ha funny and strange). I love being creative. Besides the
aforementioned cartooning, I also act in the stuff I animate, doing
voices. And beyond that I like to cook, play video games, watch
movies and then have long-winded discussions about each one of
Also self-depreciation. But I think a lot of funny people do that,
Anyway, I've also been told I'm a good listener, can carry a tune
if I want to (which is not often), and I give good Christmas
presents (but that's only a once a year talent, you know?)
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard, the hair, and my laugh. I'm pretty big, too. But mostly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I swear I can read at a
higher level than 4th grade, though.
TV: The Simpsons (first ten years, like the rest of the world),
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 30 Rock, King of The Hill, Parks
and Recreation, American Dad, Beavis and Butthead, Bob's Burgers,
Archer. I've been meaning to get around to some of the other
popular stuff like Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, but I
Movies: I love horror movies and terrible movies in general. It's
not that I'd refuse to see good movies, it's just that I'll find
myself a lot of times watching something with more serpents than
Oscar nominations. Oh and I'm always up for animation...most of the
time. I do have my limits.
Music: I enjoy most, but I really enjoy Bluegrass and folk type
stuff. In particular Hackensaw Boys. I don't mind soundtracks. I
also have an extensive geeky collection of video game music. Just
throwing that out there.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, art, humor, food, and being able to discuss all
those at length.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Future Projects. Stuff I want to draw and see. Getting thin.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sampling local cuisine to find the perfect burger and beer, though
I tend to stay in and watch a movie or play games. But don't get me
wrong, if there's something to do, I like going out as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no problem wearing cargo shorts when it's 30 degrees
You should message me if
Hey, if you've made it this far without being annoyed, go on
If you can find a conversation in any of the media I soak, you're
ok in my book.
...Also if you don't mind going for burgers and beer.
