My name is Brian but mostly go by “Indy”. I’m from the va beach area and have be painting and drawing basically my whole life. I got really heavy into graffiti and pop art style stuff when I was a teenager, a lot of that having to do with the fact that I am colorblind. Working in super bright colors and with a lot of hard edges and contrast felt more natural to me. Due to moving from my parents house and into my own apartment I had to stray away from rattle can stuff and started using Posca paint pens a few years back. I’ve played hockey almost my entire life as well and just recently graduated, ending my college career. In an effort to stay close to the greatest game in the world I bought my first airbrush(sadly a harbor freight brush) and started noodling around painting goalie masks about a year ago. Because they’re pretty pricey I’ve been painting mostly used masks or street hockey masks just to get a little proof of concept “portfolio” together. I’m hoping to eventually use my connections in our local junior and college hockey communities to start doing some commissioned masks. It has definitely been a ton of trial and error learning the do’s and the don’t ever do that again’s haha but has been way worth it just seeing my work progress.
