A show that I am participating in is currently on display at Never Ender. If you are in Reno stop in a take a peak. Never Ender also has lots of cool clothing for the gals and the guys.
I invited Lisa Congdon to be in the show with me. Check out her work, it's rad.

Squares Ville, originally uploaded by Brian Raszka.

Another in my continuing series of illustrations.
Squaresville. Where everything is angular.
One for the portfolio. This is a new style and I am excited about where it will go as I add images. As I said it is a new style but has many elements that I have been using for years: ink drawing, textures both hand and mechanically created, use of hand-created type all put together and colored digitally.
I enjoy working in the digital realm because I can rearrange, resize, recolor at will. I don't use Photoshop's fancy tricks because I want to keep to as close to a hand-done look as possible. Having said that, you have to know Photoshop pretty well to keep to a hand-done look.
