Narrative Art for the Curious
Meet the Artist
Julian Keller-King of Fox Spirit Design is an artist and illustrator
living in the wild northern woods of Montana, whose detailed mythical drawings explore the layers of relationship between human experiences, natural patterns, and the stories we live by. Julian’s work finds the common threads running from the earliest cave paintings, through the elaborately illuminated manuscripts of the middle ages, and up into today’s expansive array of comics, graphic novels, illustrated texts, and animation. Words and pictures have been essential tools for sharing our experiences and ideas
for as long as we have been human, and the stories we tell help shape
who we are and who we become.
