Put simply, Brian Stupski draws hot rods. Whether it's cars, trucks, or souped-up airships, if it can be modified, chances are he can and will draw it. By trade, Brian is an automotive artist, designer, and illustrator, and works out of his studio, Problem Child Kustoms in Gilbert, Arizona.
Brian was born into automotive obsession, with two car-crazy parents who exposed him to the custom scene at a very young age. "My earliest memories are of cars… the benefits of such memories are priceless," he writes. By age 16, he had begun his first project, a '69 Chevelle, and from then on, he was hooked. When the time came for college, he studied Fine Art, heading back again in his twenties for training in digital art and animation. Professionally, he had humble beginnings in the industry, sweeping dealership floors, detailing cars, and working in collision shops. This hands-on experience, combined with his art training, has helped him design projects that are both stylish and functional.
As the saying goes, if you find your true calling, you'll never have to work a day in your life, and Brian knows automotive art is his niche. He writes, "I'm fortunate to wake up each day and feed my kids by doing something I enjoy." Now, Brian is able to pass the "car guy" torch he inherited from his parents to his own sons.
