Artist, Writer, Creator, Fan. 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
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. For over 13 years he served as the
Creative Director for NECA/WizKids HeroClix. His work has been seen on packaging in the toy industry,
Yankees Magazine, Nocking Point Wines and CW Fan Talk, among others. He is in the process of painting
the art for his illustrated novel, The Circle, which was funded through Kickstarter.
