Julie Bell, April 2005
October 7, 1958 |
Julie Bell has painted the covers for approximately 100 fantasy/science fiction books and magazines since 1990. In the early 1990s, she illustrated painted covers for video games as well as best-selling trading cards for the superheroes of Marvel and DC. A cover art image from the Sega Game Gear video game Ax Battler: A Legend of Golden Axe would depict the semi-barbaric world that the game took place in; thus being entitled Savage Land by Bell herself. She designed the award-winning Dragons of Destiny sculpture series, Mistress of the Dragon's Realm dagger series, as well as the Temptation Rides sculpture series produced by The Franklin Mint.
Julie and her husband, Boris Vallejo, have done many paintings for advertising campaigns such as Nike, Inc., Coca-Cola, and Toyota. She has painted the covers for two albums by musician, Meat Loaf: Bat Out Of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose and Hang Cool Teddy Bear.
