My Bio

I started working as a professional artist in 1995 at Bioware, a videogame development studio in Edmonton, working as Director of Concept Art for nine years honing my craft and helping leading the charge. I've been working as a production illustrator for the last twelve years in Vancouver on such series as Defying Gravity, V, Once Upon A Time, Falling Skies, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, Tales from the Loop, SEE and many others. I have been a guest artist at all kinds of comic conventions over the last seven years since my 2013 hometown debut and have enjoyed the hell out of all of it. I'm 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. Booth P006B along the pro wall that surrounds Artist Alley. It's a fantastic show and never a dull moment when you're there. And if you make it, let me know you follow me on Deviantart and we'll work out a special cool kid deal.

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
