You have to check out Brom’s BIO on his website:

“Brom is currently kept in a dank cellar somewhere in the drizzly Northwest. There he subsists on poison spiders, centipedes, and bad kung-fu flicks. When not eating bugs, he is ever writing, painting, and trying to reach a happy sing-a-long with the many demons dancing about in his head.”

He is truly a unique artist, and we cannot help but stare and get lost in amazement at the artwork that he is producing. Here’s a few of our favourite pieces, enjoy browsing through them and be amazed. The Contrast, the detail and “darkness” (as we like to call it), and “sadness” gets captured in every piece:
