Brine speaks: "What can I say about myself? Well, I have been drawing the figure from life since I was 15 (almost 30 years ago).  I really enjoy the process of drawing from life, it's energetic and emotional, specially with a good model that I connect with. I started out wanting to be a comic strip artist, I dreamed of drawing Dick Tracy when i grew up. I copied that style when I was real young, I still can draw a mean Dick Tracy and most of his Rogue's Gallery. I discovered comic books and Jack Kirby, he was the greatest influence on my comics style. Once I started drawing from life my style evolved. I spent hours in the library looking at all types of art. Like many artists, I would mimic the various styles I liked. Some of my more obvious influences have been Michaelangelo, Rodin, Van Gough, Picasso, Egon Schiele and David Hockney. I am a great fan of the human form and have been fortunate enough to have people like what I do and want to have it on their walls. I try to draw from life at least once a week, usually more... I do have a 40 hour a week job to barely pay the bills and feed this passion."
