Creators

 

Brady Canfield, creator, artist, writer, publisher:

After serving 20 years as an officer and scientist in the United States Air Force, Brady retired and began creating comic books – a lifelong dream. He set up a studio in his Park City home and began developing the stories that had been simmering in his creative brain for years.

Scraps of paper, napkins, and sketchbooks scattered in files, books, and old coat pockets contained the ideas and episode pieces he needed to consolidate the story.

The result was “Wombat Rue.”

During his Air Force career, in addition to managing huge programs and cutting-edge research, Brady competed on the United States skeleton team for 11 years and was the bronze medalist at the 2003 Nagano World Championships. He also won National Championships at the age of 39. Now Brady is a full-time artist. In addition to Wombat Rue, he has accumulated an extensive collection of his life drawing sketches.
