|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. His work has been seen on packaging in the toy industry, Yankees
Magazine 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.
