Richard Arnold Fuscia Jr.
United States
Art and music have always been woven into the talents of my relatives. I'm a child of the seventies so I was fortunate not to have the luxuries kids have today. I drew to keep myself occupied. Drawing is all I knew. Drawing my favorite TV shows. My first exposure to comic book characters were the Spiderman cartoons and the Batman show.

Later I was fortunate to inherit my cousins comic book collection. There were a lot of war comics. Sgt. Fury, Sgt. Rock, Weird War Tales, etc.. It exposed me to great artists like Joe Kubert, John Severin, and Russ Heath. But the collection also had the entire Kirby 4th world. It blew me away. It was nothing like I had ever seen before. This was my first exposure to the king before I saw his Marvel stuff. And for a time I tried to emulate him. It's wasn't until the early eighties that I started buying comics with my own money. I was more into the artists than stories. Master of Kung with Mike Zeck drawing, Daredevil with Frank Miller, Conan with John Buscema, Sienkiewicz on Moon Knight, and anything that John Byrne and George Pérez touched.

For a while I dropped out of comics and lost touch with what was going on. It wasn't until I was in college a classmate started talking about this guy named Todd McFarlane. It raised my interest and I went out and bought Spiderman #2 and I was like this is cool. I've never seen a marvel artist draw like this. It inspired me for sure because I loved the detail. I started drawing my own comics using stories from Clive Barker's Books of Blood and I've dabbled in the self publishing arena.

Then the iMac came out and it literally changed my life. I was able to learn enough skills to land a graphic artist job for prepress printing and I'm proud to say I've been doing it ever since.
