He has been a fixture in comics since 1978 with credits including Marvel, DC, Big Bang, Image, Heavy Metal and more. His film work includes the original Heavy Metal, 'spider-Man 2 & 3″, and more recently Captain America, the Avengers, and The Walking Dead. At the beginning of 2013, Rusty will be working on a new comic-related motion picture.
Back in 1993, Rusty was working for card producer Clubhouse Diamonds and actually created the first 'sketch cards in the trading card hobby, and to his surprise, it soon took off and became a world-wide phenomenon.
In the past few years, Gilligan rejoined the sketch card arena and has provided cards for Upper Deck, Breygent Marketing, Cryptozoic Entertainment, Cult-Stuf, and many others, including producing his own sketch card set for the Mac and Trouble comic book he is releasing this year.
Currently, The Adventures of Mac and Trouble can be seen in comic books, a news strip for publications and newspapers, and soon a online feature.
