The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Kelsey Brookes!

Kelsey is an amazing illustrator. Now that that is out of the way…I’ve always admired artists who maintain a very ‘innocent’ quality to their work, a youthful feel…As if some prodigal 6 year old did it rather than a clever adult…That’s not to say Kelsey’s work is immature - not one bit. But many of the illustrations just have this ‘loose’ feel to them that I absolutely love. Others, like the surf paintings (check out those snakes in surf paintings #6!!!) are just incredible. The compositions, the colors, the vintage, worn feel to it all. Sometimes artists need to take a step back, stop working, and just admire what others are doing, and Kelsey’s is a great portfolio to do that with. Dang!
