Bradley W. Schenck has been an artist for longer than he’d like to think about and has worked at jobs that don’t even exist any more: but he’s still much too young to remember that optimistic futurism of the 1920s and 30s which has had such an influence on his art over the past fifteen years.
He illustrated some of the very earliest role playing games and supplements, and did small press work during the 1980s, like the Leslie Fish/Rudyard Kipling filk songbook, “Cold Iron”; he’s painted covers for LPs, cassettes and CDs; he’s built musical instruments; and he eventually spent many years as an artist, art director and game designer in the computer games racket, which he survived only because of something he calls “Mister Baseball Bat”.
From the mid-1990s his art has concentrated on the kind of futures people expected during the 1920s and 1930s – those days when we were really good at imagining the future – and although he enjoys science fiction, he doesn’t really believe that’s what he’s doing. These days he works on web and print projects like “Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual” and sells posters, T-Shirts and other shiny things at his Retropolis web site.

Simon Beer was born near Bern, Switzerland, in 1974. His fascination with fantasy and horror movies, books and comics, goes back to childhood. He occupied his free time with pen and paper. With no formal education in art and few jobs in Switzerland in the art field, his dreams of art fame faded. With the proliferation of the internet and the growth of popular 3D art programs, his interest was rekindled and he looked for ways to improve his skills with the different software packages. He was educated in web-design but found the work to be tiresome and mundane. It did allow him to get creative with graphic arts and has polished a skillset that really shines through in his work. Simon’s musical tastes span classic rock, heavy metal, prog and punk. You can find Simon’s online gallery at Renderosity. His user name is tiff666.
