Tim Bradstreet

Appearing: Fri l Sat l Sun

Illustrator/Designer Tim Bradstreet got busy right after high school realizing his dreams. Role Playing Games (RPG’s) were his first stop. From 1986 to 1990, Tim went from the very bottom of the industry to the very top, culminating in his first forays into photo-realism with illustrations for FASA’s ​Shadowrun​, and White Wolf Games’, ​Vampire The Masquerade​. The latter project vaulted him directly into the comics industry. Projects for Timothy Truman, Clive Barker, and Andrew Vachss, paved the way for Tim to establish himself as a cover artist. With Vertigo/DC’s,Hellblazer,​ and Marvel Comics’ ​The Punisher​, Tim began two long cover runs and created a celebrated body of work in the field, all of which helped to propel him into the film industry. In 2000, Tim designed the ​Blood Pack​, and various other vampires for film director Guillermo del Toro’s third feature, ​Blade II​. In 2004, Tim created 6 movie posters for Lion’s Gate Films’ production of ​The Punisher​, starring Thomas Jane. Bradstreet and Jane creatively collided while doing promotion for the film, and shortly after formed the boutique publishing entity, RAW Studios, along with Steve Niles. Together they created the comic series, ​Bad Planet​. In 2006, Tim was hired to create the record sleeve artwork for ​Iron Maiden’s​ 14 studio album, ​A Matter of Life and Death​ (another dream come true). 2007 saw Tim and Tom moving on to Jane’s directorial debut, the indie horror film ​Dark Country​, in which Jane also starred. Bradstreet served as Production Designer, and concept artist, as well as handling the film’s marketing imagery. For the last decade, Tim has primarily focused on his career as a go-to cover artist, contributing striking runs on titles like ​Star Trek,​ ​Hellraiser​, ​Jennifer Blood​, ​The Shadow​, Pestilence,​ andhiscurrentseries,​JohnCarpenter’sTalesofScienceFiction​.Inadditionto his cover work, Bradstreet continues to create marketing artwork for various genre film and television properties. Most notably, ​The Walking Dead​, ​The Expanse​, and ​Creepshow​. Look for Tim’s new artbook collection, and the release of his passion project in 2020. Tim lives in San Diego, California with his wife Missy and their awesome offspring, Lydia (and usually a guest or two).
