Richard Bartrop

I was born in British Columbia in 1958 and moved to Alberta, where I got my BFA at the University of Calgary. My work has appeared in the SF magazine ON SPEC, and the comic anthology FURRLOUGH. Currently, I'm wrting and drawing the funny animal cyberpunk comic ZAIBATSU TEARS, published by Limelight Publishing ( My inspirations come mostly from written science-fiction and real world science. My artistic influences are diverse, ranging from Syd Mead to the Northern Renaissance. I like to work with airbrush and acrylics, but lately I have been trying to improve my skills with digital media, both 2D and 3D. Favourite movies 2001, Stargate, BSC(new), Dr. Who, The Prisoner, the Avengers, Firefly
