Brian Murphy is an artist from Missoula, Montana who infuses his artwork with the surrounding landscapes. His pen and ink drawings are roughly sketched on paper with a pencil. He then uses a technique referred to as stippling to create the forms within the images. After graduating from Montana State University, he became directly involved in high-end residential construction, spending hours sketching layouts. This sparked his interest in the pixels used to display computer images and gave way to his technique of using only technical pens to define his images.
