Raoul Vitale | Fantasy painter

Raoul Vitale

With his words. ”I was raised by Pygmy wolves deep in the rainforests of Ohio…but I’ll save that story for another time. The short version is, I’m a self-taught freelance artist working professionally since the early nineties. My major influences have been 19th century art, Golden Age Illustration, the Bros. Hildebrandt and even the fantasy films of my youth.

For way too many years I worked as a stained glass designer but illustration was all I really wanted to do. So far I’ve had the good fortune to paint a large number of private commissions, some children’s book art, gaming art for Wizards of the Coast, sculpt concept sketches for various companies, advertising, and even some monument design.”
