The Gladewater Mirror 1979


Bradley began drawing at age 10 while in the 4th grade at Gladewater, Texas and the next year discovered dinosaurs. He studied and drew them all until his teacher became frustrated with his not paying attention in class.

She decided if he would not apply himself more she would just put him in the hallway to draw until his mother found out and stopped it.

Bradly just liked to draw, not color and once he got into art class he was in Hog Heaven.

One year they let him draw the "Gladewater Bears" poster (his way) to be run through round during football games that year and in the year book.

He bacame fast friends with the art instructor, Brad Lee and spent a lot of time with him. He worked hard through high school to perfect his skills and improve his weak areas. He read a lot and talked to other artists.



THE ART TEACHER BECOME ONE OF HIS BEST FRIENDS THAT HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH HIM FROM THEN ON, HE WORKED HARD THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL TO PERFECT HIS SKILLS AND IMPROVE HIS WEAK AREAS, HE READ A LOT BOOKS, TALKED TO A LOT OTHER ARTIST, DONATED HIS FIRST BOOK TO A CO.
