About the Author
Brad Neal is cofounder of Thomas-Bradley Ltd, a design firm focused on photorealistic technical illustration.
Brad began his illustration career as a draftsman in the engineering department at a metal fabrication firm in central Illinois, but his artistic interest motivated him to meld the technical with the creative. Partnering with his brother, artist Tom Neal, the siblings founded Thomas-Bradley Ltd in the summer of 1987—a central Illinois–based art and design firm specializing in photorealistic technical illustration. The brothers quickly gained international recognition for their success in the early adoption of computer-generated imagery (CGI), while maintaining the distinct look of handcrafted artistry.
Brad is also currently the manager of Global Visual Services with the world leader in agricultural equipment, Deere & Co.
