ABOUT JULIE BELL
Julie Bell is riding at the top in the field of superstar illustrators of the world today. Her credits include creating advertising illustrations for the elite of the corporate world, such us Nike, Coca-Cola and The Ford Motor Company; painting book covers for the major publishing houses in NYC; or doing album covers for artists such as Meat Loaf. She was the first woman ever to paint Conan for Marvel Comics, which paved the way for many other commissions from Marvel, DC, and Image Comics to illustrate superheroes in fully rendered paintings. Her first published cover for Heavy Metal magazine broke ground for other illustrators with the introduction of her now legendary Metal Flesh. Her hyper-realistic style is known for its sexy, powerful images of warriors and amazons and a sensitive, exquisite use of color and texture.
Born in 1958 in Beaumont, Texas, Julie has known herself through the identity of "Artist" for as long as she can remember-art comes as naturally to her as does breathing. Though early in her life she moved and lived in 12 different locations, she consistently kept her art at the center of things. She attended 6 different colleges and universities to continue her passion for art, always focusing her studies on the human figure and life drawing. Because of her love for the human body she took up weight training and became a nationally ranked competitive bodybuilder. She no longer competes, but maintains her muscle through continued weight training as well as Ashtanga yoga.
Julie and Boris were married in 1994 and are busy living happily ever after.
