Bruce Patrick Jones
accomplished commercial artist and successful art director,
Bruce Patrick Jones has always created paper dolls for the sheer
fun of it. As a child in a small Jamaican town, young Bruce
displayed an innate talent for drawing. One of his early inspirations
was Bill Woggon’s Katy Keene comics and he soon was creating
his own versions of glamorous characters with gorgeous wardrobes.
natural talent landed Bruce a job as an artist in an advertising
agency right out of high school. After a few years, he left
to attend the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Canada and
upon graduation, he returned to the advertising world.
A dedicated traveler, Bruce often adds to his personal collection
of paper dolls and movie memorabilia as he explores the flea
markets in Rome, Barcelona, Helsinki, Paris, Buenos Aires and
Rio. His chief interest is collecting paper dolls from magazines
While continuing to have a flourishing career in commercial
art, Bruce also gained a fan base of paper doll collectors when
he created souvenirs for many of the regional and national organizations,
conventions and clubs. His powerful style of skillful ink lines
and flowing watercolor washes is instantly recognizable and
his knowledge of anatomy, the result of continuing life drawing
classes, is always apparent.
Over the years Bruce has created scores of paper dolls for magazines
and convention souvenirs, and now his work has a wider distribution
with two books for Dover Publishing: Action Stars Paper Dolls
and Bettie Page Paper Dolls, as well as his books for Paper Studio Press.
