Brian C. Roll at Wizard World Chicago 2015

Brian C. Roll is described as an artist, writer, creator and fan.  He has been interested in art going back to his early days with crayons.  He has come a long way, eventually serving for 13 years as the Creative Director for NECA/WizKids HeroClix.  His work can also be seen on a lot of toy packaging.
His artwork features vibrant colors and brilliant shadowing.  His work is very realistic and comes to life.
You can see some of his work behind him on his display, but for a better look, go to  You can see dozens of great pieces there.  His subjects range from tv's Smallville to Harry Potter to Kermit the Frog and a lot more.  His superhero collection is amazing (even though he doesn't have favorite).
I also would love to see what he can do with pro wrestlers.  The colors, shapes and ring gear would seem to be perfect for his beautiful style.
I am sure he doesn't need my suggestions, though.  He is doing quite well on his own.  Check out his work and learn for yourself.
