Howdy,
I'm Bryan – an advertising art direction creative with a drawing and painting background based in NYC. Originally from Texas, I've been in NY for over five years trying to make ads that even non ad-people like. Currently, I'm posted up at BBDO creating work for a bunch of different brands and occasionally co-teaching a portfolio class to a group of ad students at the School of Visual Arts.
