My name is Brian Vander, and I've been drawing superheroes since I was old enough to walk. Case in point is when I 'decorated' my bedroom wall with a 3 foot tall Picasso like Batman and Robin at age 3. I'm glad my parents had a good sense of humor!

I've been drawing as a hobby ever since, and over the past 10 years I have tried to take the next step but it seems life throws roadblock after roadblock to slow you down.

That is where Dev Art comes in. Very much like having a table in artist alley at a Con and feeling the excitement and energy from the people, this website provides that. Seeing so many great artists portfolio's and reading their journey has given me the motivation to try and make this real. I am currently finalizing the story behind a Graphic Novel that I am trying to bring to vision.

So have a look at my gallery, which I am trying to update on a regular basis, and let me know what you think. The Good, the Bad (I have plenty of room to improve) and the Ugly. Don't hold back. Honest criticism is the BEST kind.

From time to time I will post Open Commission Journal Entries in which I will be taking 5 commissions at a time.

One last thing. If there are any artists out there who would like to INK or COLOR any of my work, please do so!! Only thing I ask is that you credit me with the line art and send me a link to the finished art so that I can have a look!

Thanks again for taking the time to check out my work.

Take care
Brian

Hello, we met briefly at Comic Con, and I just wanted to let you know that I wrote a small spotlight on you in my journal. I really wish you all the best in your efforts to make your original graphic novel. :)

That is very kind of you.  Thank you once again for the support.  It was a pleasure to meet you at the Con.  The Indy Con had a lot of great people and it was a joy to be a part of it.  Keep in touch!  Brian

Likewise.  It was a very successful con. Was able to meet a whole new audience, get my work out in front of them and let people know about the upcoming "World of Grey".  Thanks again for all the support

Nice!  Better late than never.  You heading to C2E2 at all?  I'll have a table there.  Stop by and say hi if you do.
