My contribution to Gallery 1988’s Tribute to Bill Murray. Which is set to open November 4th in LA (7020 Melrose Ave to be specific). The piece is going to be screen printed with 3 colors on thick textured paper. The concept is about showing Bill’s characters throughout the last 30 or so years and how both he and his characters have evolved over the years.
In other news, I’ve recently left my full-time gig at Go Media (on good terms of course), to pursue freelancing. So if anyone needs my expertise for any reason, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I was fiddling with the idea of how a movie poster from another planet would look like, and i guess by merging bits from different cultures and and invented scriptform i ended up making this poster, which im thinking on making a series and i will have a good bunch of them printed very soon.
I was commissioned by an agency to work on this Digital matte painting for TCM, the retro movie channel from the Turner network.
The client wanted 3 of the most seen landscapes on TCM movies merging, as in Western, Mysterious Island/Jungle, and Volcano forest. They were very flexible around how i should show this scene, so i decided on making a panoramic view of the scene working it out with both photography and 3d, merged with matte and manipulation work.
My name is Gustavo Brigante and as my Bio says, im a self-taught graphic designer and illustrator from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
From now on im gonna be publishing my favourites bits of work, explorations and processes in this space.
The KDU looks like an amazing project and i see a lot of great work so its a pleasure to share mine here,
i hope this will lead to new and exciting ways to keep exploring and learning further in my work, and also to meet new friends.
TV Party! – Camila Huerta by Gustavo Brigante
This work was a collaboration with chilean model Camila Huerta for her portfolio. Worked out this piece with total freedom of subject as long as the piece was centered on the main portrait so i had lots of fun working on this. At the time of making this i was also learning Cinema 4d (still am) so i experimented a little with it for this composition and all the rest was worked around with Photoshop.
It’s been a while since I updated my page. Probably cause I didn’t have much to share. I finished this illustration for Designers Against Child Slavery – An art collective dedicated to raising awareness about sex trafficking. Exhibit is on Saturday, October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 PM – check out more about the exhibit and organization here : www.dacsunited.com
Recently the pool, or bowl, at the skatepark in Saratoga Springs, NY was filled with dirt and rendered un-skateable. The city claimed they were forced to cut park employees and the pool was deemed too hazardous to be part of the new “skate at your own risk” policy. Since then, local skaters and the people of the town have been trying to get the city to remove the dirt from the pool, even offering to dig it out themselves. It’s one of the oldest pools on the East Coast, and as a skater from New York I know how rare and special it is to have access to one (there are only a handful more in the Northeast even now). With the exponential increase of popularity and interest in skateboarding over the past few years, removing the bowl is like removing a soccer or baseball field from a public park. Please visit Save the Skatepark for more information, or better yet, sign the petition to have the dirt removed. Here are some photos I took of the bowl at the park while at school in Saratoga:
This weekend Method Furniture will be premiering the METHOD x DENHAM “JOURNEYMAN” (a Steamer Trunk for a Jeanmaker) at the 100% Design Exhibition in Earls Court in London September 22-25.
How we got there? Way back before we had a real website (all of two-and-a-half years ago) we blogspotted about our Made in England denim and leather bags. In that early posting we rhapsodized about the ingenuity of early luggage design with descriptions of Louis Vuitton’s pioneering innovations. Flash forward to the present day and we’re now proud that our own modest approach to modern utility design caught the attention of the fledgling luxury furniture maker, Method Design in Scotland.
The respect between the design team at Denham and the team at Method was mutual from the onset. We rant on and on about “worshipping tradition while destroying convention” while Callum Robinson and Marisa Giannasi had been busy crafting their own design concept based on exactly the same creative ethos. Honestly we didn’t contribute that much to the project beyond cheering Callum and Marisa on from the sidelines as they undertook some 300+ hours of pure craft creation to realize our combined vision. The result speaks for itself.
Stop by and see it along with their other sublime work if you’re in the neighborhood. If not, have a look for the movie and more details on the trunk at our website.
Piece was created for DACS United.

Aiming to have the biggest and coolest skull archive in the web.
