Sun Brother is an artwork alias I've been using since High School. In a way, it's me commending where I've come from, and giving homage to how far i'll go. I've got an affinity for lots of bright and brash colors, and love to use them whenever possible. American traditional tattoo style is one I quite enjoy, along with neo traditional, but my true love lies with anime pieces. Anything space related also tickles my fancy.
