Bruce says: “Art is a journey that never ends. I’ve found that people are fascinated by seeing a blank piece of paper turn into a finished cartoon. On my TV series and with my products, I try to do just that…take simple shapes and add some detail. It all adds up to the fact that, art is a terrific way to express yourself and once you see that you too can draw… it also becomes a great way to build self esteem”!
