Steven J. Bejma was born and raised in Michigan by a father who fostered a passion for all things creepy and scary. At an early age, Steve realized that he had a talent for drawing while trying to copy the images he saw in the “Creepy” and “Eerie” comics his dad and Aunt Mary Jane would smuggle to him, much to the chagrin of his Mother. Steve’s work is heavily influenced by the covers of those same comics he would read as a kid. Such artists as Ken Kelly, Basil Gogos, and Frank Frazetta. It was their influence that drove him to begin his career in art.
