Welcome to the world of Frank Bruce !
ようこそ ! Bienvenue! خوش آمدی ! Bienvenidos! أهلا بك ! 反义词 !
This website is a gateway to my various illustrated short stories, works, and other such things. Most of the focus of my work is on the macabre and various genres of sci-fi.
This section has three "long" stories about werewolves. I hope to use these classic horror images to examine us. You know - things like cultural conditioning, apostasy, society's expectations, and the rocky road of relationships. However there's also a wide array of standalone drawings often detailed-out by a micro story. Check 'em out!
Ghouls, Ghasts & Vampires:
Yep, the name says it all. These drawings of the undead are accompanied by micro stories meant to enhance them, and also to give me an extra outlet for creativity.
Sci-Fi & Fantasy:
This recently added page features super-short fiction attached to an illustration, and is proving to be an exciting way for me to explore writing and wordplay. Again, these drawings are complimented by micro stories to give them a little more depth.
Salon de Refusés:
I really do draw stuff other than werewolves and zombies. Don't take my word for it - check out this section. But I must warn you, some of the drawings are of persons scarier than any werewolf.
I draw almost exclusively on Bee Paper products, most often with Sakura Micron ink pens and Copic markers. Frequently I add in some Cross and Parker ballpoint pen art, or Molotow acrylic markers. No, I am not endorsed by any of the above mentioned companies, but I adore their stuff so much that I figured a shout out to them would be appropriate.
The digital paintings and drawings are done on an iPad Pro using an art app called 'Procreate'. I'm not wild about the name but their product is amazing.

By the way, when not heavily researching werewolves I also enjoy, as you might have guessed, studying the growth of cities. If you are interested in this complete 180-turn from illustration and monsters, please peruse my Flickr site.
