ABOUT STEVEN BLOOMFIELD
Steven 'Tex' Bloomfield is a well-known cartoonist specialising in automotive, cartoons and caricatures. His work is humorous and relevant and his style is versatile. Years of experience living in regional Australia has allowed Steven to develop a unique insight into life in the bush. When he combines this with his strong sense of humour, some very funny cartoons are the result. Steve often did sketches while telling stories at the dining table and at bedtime. At a family function his stories were also enjoyed by grandaughter who was 2 at the time (thanks to the restaurants who provide colouring pencils and paper table cloths!). Steven has had a lifelong love of cars, trucks and other things automotive. This led him to gain regular employment with Truckin' Life magazine for nearly 20 years. Steve's monthly contributions provided a humorous insight into the Australian transport industry and included several years of continuing the adventures of Diesel Dog, a character originally created by Gary Clark. The Trucktoons section of Truckin' Life magazine was hugely popular and four dedicated 'Bloomfield Trucktoons' books were compiled. Steven went on to develop Reg Legend, a car-loving, knockabout character whose exploits were depicted in Australian Ute magazine for five years.
Steven currently contributes to the Police Association NSW magazine (monthly) and Kenworth Down Under (biannually).
Steven developed a following which led him to supply sketches to the Australian Defence Force, Austroads, Shell, the Canberra Institute of technology, NSW Police and more. His realistic sketches have been popular as gifts and momentos and he has enjoyed drawing personalised Christmas cards for several years. Recently, Steven completed a number of drawings that were included in a mainstream medical textbook, highlighting the versatility of his abilities. One of Steven's biggest fans is his ten-year-old son, Will (himself a talented cartoonist), who loves challenging his Father with requests for specific drawings.
