Justin Hillgrove grew up in Snohomish, Washington and has been enjoying artistic expression since he was old enough to color on the walls. Mostly self taught, he has since enjoyed many years of freelance illustration and design, working on everything from collectible card games to bobble heads. Justin's "Imps and Monsters" series is his creative outlet. The creatures depicted and the satyrical situations they find themselves in are reflections of moments which Justin finds amusing, many of which are inspired by his children.
After receiving his BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University in NY, Mike traveled to Seattle to begin his art career. He worked for several years on the west coast, showing in galleries like Lunar Boy Gallery, Gallery 110, Gallery 070 and the Hive Gallery. Mike now lives in the foothills of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, where he continues to show his illustrative paintings across the country.
