John Barlow is an illustrator and designer creating rich illustrations with a focus on storytelling. A Minnesota resident, John was raised on fairy tales, fiction, and forests. He’s strongly inspired by Golden Age Illustrators like N.C. Wyeth and Arthur Rackham, as well as many contemporary illustrators.

Each illustration is an exercise in atmosphere and texture, creating a world you can easily get lost in. John tells stories with a variety of clients in the tabletop gaming industry as well as fantasy publishing. When he’s not drawing, he enjoys cooking, biking, sleeping, and taking unnecessarily complicated reference photos.
