Art Guest of Honor
Official Web Site: http://www.bromart.com
born on March 9th, 1965, in Albany Georgia. He is the son of
an Army aviator and spent his entire school age years on the
move, living in such places as Japan, Alabama, and Hawaii. He
graduated from high school in Frankfurt, Germany. From his earliest
memory he has been obsessed with the creation of the weird,
the monstrous and the beautiful.
He began his professional career at the age of twenty as a full-time
commercial illustration in Atlanta, Georgia. He immediately
attracted such clients as Coke, IBM, and CNN. At the age of
twenty four he came on board full time as a staff artist with
TSR (the premier role-playing game company). He contributed
his distinctive look to all the major TSR game and book lines
and completely designed the look and feel for the best selling
Dark Sun world.
In 1993 Brom returned to freelance market and has been working
obsessively within every facet of the SF/Fantasy/Horror field.
Specializing in the darker side of the genre. Through his artwork
for book covers (Michael Moorcock, Anne McCaffrey, Terry Brooks,
Burroughs), games (TSR, FASA, White Wolf), cards
( WOTC, FPG, Heresy), comics (DC, Chaos, Darkhorse), movie concepting
( Stan Winston, Tim Burton, Chuck Russel, including the poster
for Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow) and computer games (Broderbund,
Blizzard, Activision, ID, Raven, SEGA), Brom has brought his
distinctive, dramatic and often disturbing visions to life.
His recently released art book, "Darkwerks", contains
a powerful and haunting selection of these visions.
