BILL MORRISON BIOGRAPHY
Bill Morrison began his career in 1981 after attending the Center for Creative Studies College of Art & Design in Detroit, Michigan. He went on to land a job as a technical illustrator. Reviewing Bill's mechanical renderings, his supervisor would often remark, "You know Morrison, I hear there's big money in cartooning." The seed was planted, and Morrison spent the next several years creating illustrations that advertised a wide range of products, from chocolate syrup to motion pictures.
In 1987, he began a series of paintings promotions many of Disney's animated films. Included in that body of work are posters for "Cinderella", "Bambi," "Lady and the Tramp," and" The Little Mermaid."
Morrison was recruited to draw the Simpson's in 1990, and has contributed to an enormous enclave of books, calendars, magazines, T- shirts and all things Simpson. Since 1994, Bill has served as editor and as a principal writer and artist at Bongo Comics, helping to creatively oversee Simpson's Comics, Radioactive Man, Bartman, and Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror.
Bill's creation, Roswell, Little Green Man, is the first non - Simpson's title to be published by Bongo Comics. Roswell was featured in a special, four-part back-up preview in Simpson Comics #19 through #22, before premiering in its very own ongoing series.
Bill is also an art director for the hit animated TV series Futurama on Fox Television.
