Hello art lovers and fans. My name is Brandon “Bardo” Holly. I’m a 39 year old freelance illustrator and cartoonist originally from Baltimore, MD. Now I reside in Pittsburgh, PA with my wife and 4 children. I’m a self taught natural artist (thanks to my dad) with a BA degree from La Roche College in Graphic Design.

I enjoy classic cartoons ranging from old Disney shorts, Looney Tunes to Phineas and Ferb, and TMNT. My favorite artists are J. Scott Campbell, Frank Cho, Pat Lee, and the legend of comic covers… Micheal Turner. Primarily, I draw pin up art using my brand of art called Bardo’s World. I incorporate my style on things ranging from superheroes/villians to sports teams and people of all walks of life. Check me out on Facebook at Bardo’s World.

***Brandon will also have a limited edition print made just for the show with the New Dimension Comics logo on it. It will also be a limited print run of 15. No more will ever be produced. So be sure to check it out. The original and print will be debuted at the show. ***

Jude Gallagher, 20, is a local, up and coming Pittsburgh artist. Self taught beginning at a very young age has allowed him to master his craft by trial and error. His style consists of a combination of tradition, clean pencil work with a touch of graphic design. Bringing the two worlds together gives Jude’s work a blend of unique techniques. Being an artist on display has always been a dream of his, and now it is finally a reality. With aspirations of becoming an experienced, well-rounded artist, Jude is thrilled to have his work on display for the guests at the Pittsburgh Comic & Collectibles Show to enjoy.
