Learn more about Bruce and the show below
Bruce was never that artist who as a kid drew cartoons and other stick figure related images on the walls of his home. Nope, he was the kind of kid that drew spacemen on his sheets. In ink.
Since then, he has spent his early years absorbing and being influenced by 50’s and 60’s sci-fi/fantasy movies, Hammer Films, Godzilla and ape flicks, comic books and Looney Tunes. And his imagination formed into the finely tuned clunker that it is now. Bruce now spends his creative pursuits in combing the depths in search of that elusive wreck or some hidden treasure of one kind or another.
As a freelance illustrator and sculptor, Bruce has worked with many licensed properties, such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Deadworld, and others for such clients as Lucasfilm, Topps, Caliber Press, Hogsnot, Deadbeat Dads Greeting Cards, The Rehab Tribune, Debaucheri Magazine and Caprice Brands, among others. And he helped to construct a weathervane based on his design for the Belle Isle Aquarium in Detroit, MI.
His cartoons have been seen in various publications nationwide, as well as overseas. Currently, Bruce does cartoons for the Belle Isle Aquarium and for the web comic stoopidstuf.com.
