I am Brendan Mauer, a graduate of VCUarts with Bachelor's in Communication Arts. I'm proficient with pencils and pens in any style or technique but my true passions lay in character design, graphic novel or comic work, or book illustrations. I appreciate creative forms of narrative. I've been frequently influenced by animation over the years so I've picked up a bit in that field as well. I always try to deliver unfamiliarity. If something's not a little strange, it's already a little less awesome.
