Biography
Suydam came from a family of artists, who helped him develop his talents when he was recognized early on as a prodigy. By the time he was fourteen he had won awards for his drawings. At age eighteen he was working in the field of illustrated writing. Suydam is also skilled in music, and worked as the tour music director for The Comets after Bill Haley's death. Following the Comets' tour he did a stint with The Platters. He was then hired by film producer Bill Delia to serve as music director and composer for Thomas Berger's The Feud, where he had a chance to work with Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Billy Joel, and the Rolling Stones.

As he moved back into writing and illustrating, he attempted to bring to the world of comics a fusion of sequential art with classical painting. He was in favor of bringing comics to a more mature audience by giving them a more artistic feel and literary value.

Artistic work
Suydam contributed work to many publications, including Heavy Metal, House of Secrets, House of Mystery, Batman, Conan, Tarzan, Epic Illustrated and National Lampoon. His own projects include Arthur Suydam: The Art of the Barbarian, Skin Deep, The Alien Encounters Poster Book, Visions: The Art of Arthur Suydam, Mudwogs and The Adventures of Cholly and Flytrap.

He was Artist Guest of Honor at Dragon Con and received lifetime achievement awards from the University of Maryland and the San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain. He has been inducted into the Society of Illustrators in New York and in 2005 was honored with the Spectrum Gold Medal for artistic excellence.

Arthur Suydam is a comic creator whose work is most recently featured on covers for Marvel Zombies, Ghost Rider, Hellstorm and Wolverine Origins for Marvel, as well as the much-anticipated crossover of Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness for Dynamite. His own projects include Mudwogs, Mudwogs II, Bedtime Stories for the Incarcerated, Libby in the Lost World and Cholly & Flytrap, recently serialized through Image Comics and soon to be released as an animated feature through Paranoid Delusions. Suydam's artwork and writing have been featured in publications including Heavy Metal, Penthouse Comix, House of Secrets, Epic Illustrated and National Lampoon, as well as international sci-fi and comic anthologies. He has contributed to such titles as Batman, Conan, Tarzan, Predator, Aliens and Death Dealer, to name only a few. Recently awarded with the 2005 Spectrum Gold Award for Institutional Art, Suydam is also a member of the Society of Illustrators in New York City.


Musical work
Also an accomplished singer-songwriter, Suydam's love of American roots music has lead him to perform with Bill Haley's Comets and The Platters, as well as composing and recording the soundtrack to the critically-acclaimed independent film, The Feud. Suydam's own band, the Gotham Playboys, has recorded and is currently on tour with Bruce Springsteen. Arthur Suydam lives and works in Manhattan's East Village.
