Brandon McGill has made a name for himself by tackling the unconventional. From the bright and bold, to the dark and mysterious; he is drawn to creating interesting extremes. Primarily known for his body painting work, he recently directed a music video called Notes from Wonderland which features a gender-swapped Alice. This debuted online to positive reviews, and will be shown at Phoenix Comicon in June.
His next major project involves promoting Trans* awareness and visibility. This was inspired by painting a trans man at Folsom in San Francisco. He was moved when he saw how proud the gentleman was wearing the art on his bare chest. When he heard about the struggles affecting his friends, it further cemented his commitment to do more for this group. Although Brandon acknowledges progress has been made with Trans* rights, this community is still disproportionately affected by hate crimes and legislation.
Both his art and writing, have been featured in the Advocate, Echo Magazine, Java Magazine, Arizona Republic, and a number of fabulous blogs. He is closely involved in the art community, but in his downtime, can be found knee deep in a pile of video games. He lives in Arizona, alone with his paintbrushes and whimsical imagination.
