Description Edit | History

Randy Gallegos (born October 31, 1974) is an American artist who was commissioned to create artwork for the Middle-earth Collectible Card Game.

From website:

I love art. I love imagination. I love creating what has never been, or re-presenting what has, and I love the mental challenge that illustration presents.

Since 1994, when I began illustrating professionally at the age of 19, I've produced hundreds of illustrations, primarily within the fantasy gaming realm. Though beginning my career working in Acrylic paint, since 1998 I have worked almost exclusively in Oils, with plenty of digital preliminary work in the preparatory phase. Though I've done some digital work for use as final illustrations, I find that I am never satisfied with the process of working in that medium--it does not have the same soul, the visceral and tangible intimacy of real media. As well, I love original artwork--seeing the artifact where an artist has put himself, where his hands actually went, where his ability could take him without digital shortcuts. I am, quite simply, a painter.

I grew up in San Jose, CA, and have lived there, as well as in Italy, England, Spain, North Carolina, and now New York City. I enjoy jogging, having completed my first marathon in 2008, as well as all manner of reading. I speak Spanish fairly well, and am (very) slowly learning Japanese.

I've been blessed with an incredibly supportive wife, opportunity, and some measure of success. The pursuit of greatness in art is a solitary, slow, all-consuming task, with few encouragements available on the average day. Because of this I am so very grateful to the many people who have liked my work enough to support it, either through commissioning me for their projects, or collecting prints and original artwork.
