Brian C. Roll was born and raised in New Jersey. He holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, with a concentration in Computer Animation.
An interest in art developed as soon as he figured out that crayons served a better purpose being put to paper than put in his mouth. Inspired by cartoons and movies early on, he was never without his trusty drawing pad and had his first installation art exhibit when he placed his Star Wars action figures in the family Nativity display.
Years later, art and the creative process are still his biggest passion. He currently serves as the Creative Director for NECA/WizKids HeroClix.
