Eisner Award nominated illustrator ,Tim Bradstreet, was born February 16, 1967 in Cheverly, Maryland. Primarily a self-taught illustrator, he has been working professionally since graduating from high school in 1985. Forgoing institutional art instruction, Tim joined Fantasmagraphics in 1986, where he worked for two years with fellow illustrator Steve Venters. Under the guidance of Venters, Tim began illustrating role-playing games, honing his skills while pursuing his lifelong ambition to draw comics. In 1990 he hit the ground running with industry legend Tim Truman on Dragon Chiang, and never looked back.

Reinventing the Publishing Model One Artist at a Time
Amusedom is the brain child of legendary fantasy and comic book artist, Pepe Moreno. In 1990, Pepe led the way for comic book artists to move into the digital domain with the release of of his ground breaking graphic novel, Batman Digital Justice. As an early adopter of digital media, myself, and a fellow member of the Mac revolution, I met Pepe just as this book was being released, (I have two autographed copies in hardback). We have been professional acquaintances, ever since.
Pepe is a fabulous artist, but even more, he is a visionary -- a visionary who wants every artist to have a profitable publishing avenue, free from the artificial barriers imposed by a handful of big publishers.
Enter Amusedom: Pepe created Amusedom to be a democratic online publishing model, that returns the lion-share of the revenues back to the creators of the work being sold. What a concept! He refers to it as, " the emancipation of artists and the arts". Pure Pepe! ;-)
Amusedom has attracted some amazing talent: Syd Mead, Michael Kaluta, Paco Roca, Tim Bradstreet, Javier Trujillo, Richard Starkings, Cris Ortega, Dave Johnson, Michael Golden, Bill Sienkiewicz, Rosanna Walls, Alvaro Pons, Bruce Jones, Michael Netzer, Thomas Jane, J.
