★ Spot Light on Bryan Katzel

I have never highlighted an artist on my blog after only seeing just one piece of their work, but when I came across a site entitled I was astounded by the clever ingenuity of Bryan Katzel. The site header has a door with paint dripping down a few steps which looks cool, but was a little too simple for my taste. But as I scrolled down the page I noticed that the paint drips scroll with you as you travel through a cool little world of video-game-type illustrations. IT'S JUST SO COOL!!! I must have scrolled this site up and down 50 times to take in all the fine detail and ways the drips seem to morph before they flow into a pool of paint at the bottom of the page. The site doesn't use trendy animations and sounds or all the other bells and whistles that so many times deems a site to be amazing, it just uses a little elbow grease and some good old fashion creativity!

Bryan's whole marketing scheme called "we bleed design" is potent and seamless. You have to check out his business card in the print section and peep his merch at the bottom. Bryan, we can all see that design is in your bloodline and we tip our hats to you! Keep up the good work.
