This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his illustrations of comic books and horror stories, Bernie Wrightson started his career as an illustrator for The Baltimore Sun.  The next year, having visited with comic book illustrator Frank Frazetta, he decided to write his own stories, which he then showed to Dick Giordano of DC Comics.   Giordano gave him a freelance assignment, and Wrightson began spelling his name 'Berni' to distinguish himself from the Olympic diver, Bernie Wrightson.  He later reverted back to his actual spelling.

In the 1960s and 1970s, he worked for both DC and Marvel Comics, and in 1974, left DC for Warren Publishing.  He did a series of black and white horror comics and also did adaptations of stories by Edgar Allen Poe.

In 1975, Wrightson formed 'The Studio', a loft in Manhattan with fellow illustrators Jeff Jones, Michael Kaluta and Barry Windson-Smith.  They determined to break free of the "constraits of comic book commercialism."  Wrightson also did other commercial work including calendars, posters and coloring books.   For seven years, he did 50 pen and ink drawings for an edition of Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein, and he also did the poster for Stephen Kings horror film, Creepshow.

In addition Wrightson has done album covers for bands including for Meat Loaf, and production character design for the 2005 Serenity.
