Bruce Outridge started drawing at age ten and had to learn it on his own, since art classes at school didn’t include drawing instruction. In fact, he used to get detentions in school for what he now charges hundreds of dollars an hour in his art business!
At 16, Bruce's passion for drawing somehow turned to driving and he spent 25 years driving transport trucks across North America, which taught him more about dealing with people than school ever did. He still works closely with the trucking industry, speaking about business and careers on his podcast, The Lead Pedal Podcast for Truck Drivers.
At age 40, Bruce went back to school and learned creative writing, marketing, and business. He started his art business in 2003 part-time. In 2006, he stopped driving trucks to devote himself to the business full-time. Bruce has created comic books, built an art business, expanded into a consulting business, and now a speaking business.
Bruce helps people be more creative – with content marketing and art entertainment for events – through his podcasts, books, articles, a television show, and as a motivational speaker.
