Brian Vogel Bio.
Brian was raised around the dirt tracks of southeast Texas in the late 1960's. He has had the opportunity to be around motorcycles and auto racing since the young age of 6 months old.
He originally started his career in studio art; he converted over into the digital art and graphic design fields in 1999. He specialized in oil and acrylic painting and those skills have helped him excel in Pantone Screen printing separations due to the extensive dry color blending techniques.
