Brian Griffin
United States
I have been a professional artist for about 6 years. I work with leather, metal, resin castings and quite a few other materials.

Most of my work is for sale, and quite a few are what I call "production works". They can be reproduced for sale. I also make custom props for film and theater.

If you have a need for my work, please contact me at

or my etsy store at…

Current Residence: San Jose CA
Favourite genre of music: Vast, But I hate rap.
Favourite photographer: Thomas Weir
Favourite style of art: What is good.
Skin of choice: Cow
Favourite cartoon character: Ren and Stimpy
Personal Quote: If you have done it once, you can do it a thousand times.
I posted the first attempt at the full sized skeleton torso with skull backpack in leather. Not overly pleased with it but I am in un charted waters. I will post more and add to the journal as time permits.

I also want to add that the process I put the leather through did not work as well as past projects. And I might add that the leather is not vacuum formed. If it were that easy, every one and their mother could do it. It takes hours to get the proper shape from the leather.

  • Listening to: My better Angles
  • Reading: Lots of things that interest me
  • Watching: Life unfold
  • Playing: Stay alive
  • Eating: The best foods I can
  • Drinking: Some things I should not

Thanks for the note. Look forward to talking more about projects.

I was wondering if you got my email I sent to your BG&Ass email (the other bounced back with failure to process)

My email was subject line Hello again! Product request.
I can re-send if you have not received it, the internet is like that sometimes, has it's moments. I hope your keeping well. All the very best from the UK :)
No I dont think I got the email. My email address is so you may have sent it to the wrong email address.
Hey Hi Brian, Hope you are well and keeping busy.
It seems the company whose servers that our emails are using have been having a lot of problems with sending customers emails, I can receive fine but sending is hit and miss....mostly miss. So we decided to send the same email content to you from a Gmail address, It has something to do with poodles in the email name so you can spot it and the subject is "eBay product request please".
We hope you receive it. We have sent the email to the address you provided so fingers crossed :)
Take care and we will talk later.
I will check my email later today.

Thank you for your comment! I'm still messing around however in the early stages of mask making with huge (especially plaster mouldmaking) issues! :) Your work is totally professionnel, and really impressive!
You are welcome, and thank you.

I love leather, but for some reason have gone (for now anyway) into the latex!;)
