Titans of Progress

I did this huge piece as a free downloadable wallpaper for, an illustration-centric website. I also will have an interview and a gallery on view there. I'm not sure when all of it will be up, but I'm sure I'll post a link when it does. 

I actually had no plan when I started this piece. First I was going to tile a bunch of these heads with objects around them kind of like they were floating in space. But I unfortunately liked the composition in which I drew them, so I made a ton more work for myself by drawing an intricate scene surrounding all these busts. I know I missed some very deserving jerks in this illustration, but hopefully I'll do a sequel piece.

"The New Boss..."

Here's a piece to be screen-printed for my upcoming show. Enjoy!

"Does Marriage Make The Gays Boring?"

Here's a piece for the Village Voice accompanying an article by Michael Musto called, "Does Marriage Make The Gays Boring?" I like what I've been doing with color lately. Here's the link to the article:

Black Friday

Here's a new one for Time Out Chicago concerning the madness of Black Friday and how stores are now opening at midnight. This was a lot of fun to work on as I got to work a little differently than I have in the past. Enjoy!

Saudi Arabian Feminism

Here's a new illo for The Progressive about fighting for women's rights in Saudi Arabia, which is the only country that forbids women from driving among other oppressive laws. On a positive note, recently King Abdullah finally granted women the right to vote and run in municipal elections starting in 2015.

Business Lunch

So here's something a little weird and dark. Hopefully I'll be posting some more illos like this since I have a sketchbook full of ideas in the same vein. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

Beat Me!

Hey everybody, 

A Spanish/English fanzine called "Beat Me" did a little write up about yours truly. It's distributed in New York and Madrid, but if you're outside those areas you can read the highly collectable zine online at the links below.

Europe sketches

So I just recently took myself on a trip across Europe, and along the way I did a few sketches. The last pic is of me in a bone church outside of Prague. Enjoy!

Cosmonaut Crash Landing

I'm currently reading a book about the early years of the Soviet space program and somehow thought this would make a fun drawing. Enjoy!

Behance alphabet B!

I was invited by Mark Miller of Dark Igloo to participate in creating an alphabet for Behance. Each artist got to pick a letter and being that my initials are BBB, my choice was obvious. I decided to style my letter around the ancient diety Ba'al, who is more commonly known today as a demon and polyonymously as The Lord of the Flies, Beelzebub, and even Satan himself. 

My sister, Jordan, also did one (J of course. Are the Bruners a bit narcissistic?). As she put it, "It's a Josephine Baker look-a-like stepping on a Jack Russel Terrier dressed as Thomas Jefferson, duh..." 

I can't wait to see the completed alphabet. It should be great!

The Molly Maguires

I got to do a piece for The Progressive's 2012 calendar which is themed around forgotten American history. My little bit of  forgotten history involves the Molly Maguires who were coal mining Irish immigrants living in 19th century Pennsylvania.  They unionized, and due to poor working conditions, low pay, and long hours they decided to strike. Of course their corporate bosses/enemies didn't like this, and to make a long story short, 20 of the union leaders were wrongly convicted of murder and later executed. For more info, here's the always reliable wiki page:

Mind Over Matters: Chapter Four

Hey y'all, here's a link and some samples of the fourth chapter of the Mind Over Matters comic for Pfizer which I think may be the best one yet. Also as some friends know already I based some of the new characters on their likenesses. Enjoy!

Chapters Five and Six will be on their way soon enough.

Show Biz!

I've been working on a pretty exciting project for the last month or so. I'm going to be creating the art for the movie, "Neighbors," which is about a middle aged graphic novelist who has hit a creative wall and how that affects his relationships with the people around him. It's sort of a romantic comedy. So what I'm doing is making all the art that supposedly belongs to Sam, the graphic Novelist. Here's the link to the movie's website.

And here's the key art poster:

More art to come!

Header removed

So I had an image of few dictators as my blog header. Since of recent events and that one of them happened to be Gadhafi, I chose to remove it. Take care and be safe, our Libyan friends!

New Web Site!!!

After much delay, I finally have a new website that I built on my very own (Well, with some help from a few others). Since my blog is now imbedded into the site, you're probably looking at it right now. Enjoy!

Etsy Store

Hey all,

I was just letting you know that I just opened up an Etsy Store. Right now I just uploaded some prints, but hopefully soon I'll be adding a lot more products like bags and shirts and stuff.

Take care!

I just finished this guy for a new literary publication called Gigantic Magazine. The theme of the the issue was "indoors," so I took a literal take on this and drew my old room/studio based on a few photos I had. I may have some other existing illustrations in the upcoming issue, so look out for it at a book store near you!

Afghan Women

Here's a new one for The Progressive that accompanies a piece about the plight of women in Afghanistan and how their lives are either controlled by the Taliban or the current lawless behavior of men in their communities. It was only supposed to be in Black and white, but I went ahead and did a color version just for fun. Also I included the sketches which is something I usually don't do, but I liked the ideas for this job. Maybe more to come.

Also in other news, I moved back to Brooklyn! Happy New Year everyone!
