Greetings! Welcome to The Bradshacalypse
(derived from “Apocalypse”, meaning “to reveal”, not “the end of the world”). I am Tim Bradshaw, and I like to make things. The things I tend to make are comics, the occasional animation of some kind, illustrations, some music here and there, and fan art of various comics, cartoons, and video games. There’s nothing more exciting to me than to increase the syntropy of a blank canvas… That means I like to turn nothing (a blank canvas) into something (a drawing, painting, etc.). Y'know, trash to treasure, lead to gold, rabbit out of a hat - what was once known as “Magic”, but I digress.
My main hub on the Internet at the moment is my Tumblr blog
, so if you want to really know what I'm up to, I'd suggest you follow me there.
You can also find me on YouTube
where I upload stuff I can't here, namely videos like animation and music and such.
