Jerry Vanderstelt has been drawing since a young boy at the age of eight. His interest in sci-fi and fantasy was sparked when first reading C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia books as a child, and later after discovering J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. The beautiful storytelling in these books continue to inspire his love for the genre today.
Vanderstelt has let his love of sci-fi and fantasy guide his artistic career, and has collaborated with prominent toy and filmmakers including Hasbro toys, Topps Trading Cards, Lucasfilm Ltd., Warner Bros., and New Line Cinema.
