My Bio
I started working as a professional artist in 1996 at Bioware, a videogame development studio in Edmonton, working as Director of Concept Art for eight years honing my craft. I've been working as a production illustrator for the last six years in Vancouver on such series as Defying Gravity, V, Once Upon A Time, Falling Skies and now The Flash, debuting in October 2014 and have been a guest artist at several comic conventions and enjoyed the hell out of all of it. Always looking to meet other artists with great passion for the work and collaborations, share stories, swap tips and talk shop, new projects and networking with the great talent here on Deviantart

Deviantart Friends! I'll be attending Fan Expo Canada next week in Toronto as a guest artist! Love for you to drop by and talk shop and share stories.

Art Store Live!

Art Store Live!

Well, my friends, after a month and a half of heavy lifting, learning curves and adopting best practices, my art store is open for business! I put the finishing touches on it this afternoon. I was hoping for it to be on my birthday this past Thursday but I'd rather it be bombproof than rushed. When I first purchased the e-com package from my pals at artstorefronts.com I was curious, open-minded and excited. I still am, but even more so! Fascinating process, all of it. There are stages of roll out on a creature like this and the first milestone is achieved! So I offer you all the first tour of http://www.johngallagherart.com. Enjoy
