C. BRADFORD GORBY added to Show!
Make sure you stop by and check out his amazing art

Illustrator C. Bradford Gorby started his art career in the third grade, selling watercolors to his neighbors – until his parents made him return the money. Not deterred by this setback, he kept drawing and actually found his parents quite encouraging in his artistic pursuits, introducing
him to the pin-up art of Alberto Vargas .Eventually his enthusiasm for
drawing pretty girls lured him to Central Florida, giving up his day job in computer graphics for Post Production Services in Cincinnati, Ohio. He spent 10 years illustrating FEMFORCE for Bill Black’s AC Comics, as well as slipping in a few other companies when time allowed, Image Comics, Todd McFarlane Productions, DC Comics and continued his work as a sculptor for Miniature Wargaming that he began in 1982 with Ral Partha Ent., Tag Industries, and Alderac Entertainment. He retired from art as a profession for 10 years and got a “real job” which only fueled his artistic drive, “at the end of my shift I would return home and create”. I am simply driven to draw, paint, sculpt, whether I am working professionally or not. It’s what I do. His full time job managing a liquor store lead to a chance meeting of a fan of his comic book work and that turned into a new job at Walt Disney World, where he spent 5 years as a Theme Produc-tion Specialist. He assisted in the creation of the character icons at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, as well as helping ensure that Cinderella and Princess Aurora always looked their loveliest outside of The World of Disney Store at Downtown Disney. Currently he is a self- employed freelance artist at C.Bradford Gorby Studio and working on a graphic novel with writers Michael Cucka and John Salimbene entitled WEBB.
Keep up with the Pop-Culture world of Central Florida!
