Hey there, my name is Brian and I’d like to welcome you to my blog of illustrations, drawings, cartoons and doodles, also known as, the Air Conditioned Cage. I’ve been drawing since I was a kid but with the exception of some sketching assignments and a semester of 7th grade art class I’ve never had any formal art education.
As should be immediately clear, most of my work has been largely inspired by the Simpsons and their general style of drawing and humor. In fact the very first book I bought relating to art was called ‘Cartooning with the Simpsons’. So naturally, many of my drawings are Simpsons characters or Simpson-esque characters I’ve made up at some point in time.
Oddly I’ve always had a very strong memory in terms of where I was or who I was with when I’ve made a drawing, and I plan on adding some shout outs to the people who helped inspire me or just plain old dealt with me as I jumped up and down for attention with a sharp pencil in my hand. So please cut me some slack as I try to credit everyone for their endless efforts and support.
Please feel free to use this blog as an opportunity to express your thoughts on my work and feel free to offer any advice, critiques, criticisms, suggestions, requests, paid work opportunities (hey you never know), and don’t forget about flattery that you can spare for a young and customarily lost artist.
Thanks for stopping in,
About the Cage
Air Conditioned Cage is powered by WordPress and the Android operating system. Using an HTC Evo 4G cell phone. I take the pictures of my sketches and edit them using the free Photoshop Express App for Android. For managing my content I use the free version of Astro for Android and if I need to FTP directly to my server I use a free FTP App called AndFTP.
If you’re viewing the site through a standard Mac/PC browser, I’m using a theme named ‘Bones’. However, if you’re viewing the site on a mobile device, such as an Android Phone, Android Tablet, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch what you are seeing is WPTouch a free WordPress plugin that automatically detects if you are using a mobile device or not and adjusts the display accordingly.
