JOHN GALLAGHER

John Gallagher

Born curious and raised on a steady diet of comic books and Saturday afternoon double features sealed John's fate at an early age and the world was spared another lawyer. Star Wars flipped the switch and come hell or high water he was going to do that for a living. Many years and countless drawings later, John started at Bioware in 1995. Time flew by and millions of games sold later it was time for new challenges. He relocated to Vancouver in 2008 to work in film and television.

Currently illustrating THE FLASH and SUPERGIRL for CW, John keeps busy doing feature, series and look development for diverse projects like "DEFIANCE, ONCE UPON A TIME, FALLING SKIES and CONTINUUM". John has also worked on the upcoming "POWER RANGERS" feature. During rare downtime, this proud father sips from Russell's Teapot and contemplates Shrodinger's Equation, all while visiting with a delightful legion of imaginary friends. His his latest work can be seen on The Umbrella Academy, Titans and new Marvel Studios properties.
