Brian Ajhar’s In Character

Brian Ajhar’s career as an artist has spanned three decades. His extensive and diverse client list includes numerous magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, corporate clients and book publishers. His illustrated children’s books have been published worldwide in a multitude of languages and have appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List. Brian’s work is widely recognized for its distinctive and humorous point of view. His whimsical paintings incorporate traditional mediums such as watercolors, acrylics, pencils and inks that have been integrated with digital technology. Brian’s work has been featured in many articles and books written about the field of illustration. The Illustrator in America 1860-2000 by Walt Reed profiled Brian as a major influence in the 1990s.

This 7 x 7 book is a special edition we designed for Brian to be showcased during the 2011 CTN Animation Expo. We also created a companion epub file for him so that he can show clients the book on his iPAD throughout the convention. Last year, we created Brian’s first book, Mugs & Beards. His book has also been featured as a Blurb Staff Pick. We wish Brian continued success and the best of luck at the CTN Animation Expo this year.
