Since the early nineties, Brian Pulido's words and creations have been infecting the wild world of comics and beyond, creating a legacy of edgy characters and stories with a dark, rock and roll sensibility that has influenced pop culture and made underground images mainstream.
Pulido graduated New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Motion Picture and Television Department and went to work in the motion picture business as his short film, Nightfall, funded in part by the Louis B. Meyer foundation, played in ten film festivals and won several awards.
Starting out as a production assistant on movies like Batteries not Included and Bright Lights, Big City, he moved onto Def Jam records where he was first Assistant Director (AD) on the Company's Tougher Than Leather starring Run-DMC and the Beastie boys.
Pulido went on to AD videos for a who�s who of the time: Kiss, Queensryche, Blues travelor, Roy Orbison, Heavy D & the Boys, Lenny Kravitz, Joan Jett, C & C Music Factory and Hall & Oates and others. Pulido's commercial clients included Coca Cola, Sprite and Avon.
In the nineties, Pulido co-founded Chaos! Comics with artist Steven Hughes and Francisca Pulido. As the President of Chaos! Comics, Pulido was the leading independent comic publisher of the 1990's, achieving over thirty million dollars in sales in eight languages.
His real joy came from dreaming up stories and creating wild, never-before-seen characters. Chaos! was one of the main instigators of the "Bad girl" craze in comics. To outshine the big companies, Chaos! introduced comics with leather, velvet and chromium covers and set off a chain reaction of collectors hungry for the madness.
Chaos! employed some of the finest independent artists ever to draw comics including, but not limited to - the magnificently talented Steven Hughes, a master storyteller who breathed life in the undead Evil Ernie and Lady Death , Jason Jensen, perhaps the finest colorist in Indy comics ever and the mysterious Justiniano, whose unparalleled artwork captivated a generation.
Later artists like Al Rio and Ivan Reis, David Brewer and Jerry Beck continued the tradition of ground-breaking illustration. At its best, Chaos! was like a rock and roll band that made comics. Readers knew it and jumped on board.
As creative director of Chaos! Comics, Pulido won twelve international printing awards and oversaw hundreds of licensed items including posters, prints, sculptures, action figures, apparel, trading cards and drinkware Chaos! became a lifestyle for its fans who got tattoos of the characters.
Not content with any single form of creativity , Pulido has designed a major haunted attraction for Rawhide Western town, created Tour T-Shirts for the bands Megadeth, Insane Clown Posse and Static X and created close to fifty character Avatars for Tiger Electronics.
Chaos!, along with Clayburn Moore's Moore Creations was among the first to market with astounding collectible action figures for the collector�s market.
Pulido received the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund's Defender of Liberty award for his fundraising efforts in support of first amendment issues. This would not have been possible without the support of all the Chaos! Comics employees, artists and fans.
On the motion picture front, Pulido created, produced and wrote the story for ADV Film's animated feature, Lady Death. Recently he wrote, produced and directed the award winning short horror film, There's Something out There www.theressomethingoutthere.com, which has played at twenty five film festivals and has eight wins.
Pulido has created, written or co-written over 260 comic books including: Lady Death, Evil Ernie, Purgatori, Chastity, Smiley, the Psychotic button, Bad kitty, Jade, Lady Demon, Bedlam and The Undead among many other titles.
