Brooklyn born native, Led A. Bradshaw is a talented comic book artist/writer, graphic artist, and draftsman.  A child prodigy in the arts,  Led was already captivating children and adults alike with his exceptional artistic abilities right from the time he was three years old.

When he was 12 years old, his mother enrolled him at the prestigious Pratt Institute where he attended Saturday classes to help him hone and develop his talent.  Though he went on to study Fine Art at the College of Staten Island, it wasn’t until the birth of his son Jacob in 2010, that he decided it was time to answer his higher calling.

He pursued a career in the arts in order to be a good role model to his son as one who went after his dreams. Under the guidance of his friend and mentor, Shun Takino, He learned Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator; skills he picked up with amazing ease.

Months later, He was hired as a technical writer which required that he use both his graphic design and writing skills.  He also got the attention of recording artists, a wrestling organization, and a non-profit organization, doing various work for them ranging from CD album covers, to posters, to mini-comic books.

Wanting to inspire his son, a highly functioning autistic child, to learn, create and be his own hero, Bradshaw created the children’s comic book series, "The New Adventures of Jake Jetpulse". A story based on characters coming from the imagination of his son. 

Desiring to leave his own unique footprint on the world, his half jokingly says his goal is to  “help the world unleash their inner heroes”. With the eclectic capabilities and determination he’s exhibited thus far, he’s not only likely to achieve his mark, but go well beyond it.
