About Justin Russell

My name is Justin David Russell. I'm a freelance fantasy illustrator. Ever since I can remember, I have drawn and painted. When I was in middle school, I discovered my first art book, a sizable tome of Michael Whelan's work. Seeing the process of illustration laid bare (as well as the results of such work) for the first time, I knew this was what I wanted to do personally and professionally for the rest of my life. Ever since, I have been on a bee-line path to achieve my goal. Inspirations like Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson, Whelan, the Hildebrandts, many Golden Age illustrators like N.C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle (as well as too many others to name here), helped pave the way for me. My hope is to provide as much beauty and inspiration as they did, to inspire my audience, and bring my visions to life.
