Born in 1954, Gale Heimbach started his career under the tutelage of artist/ publisher Jim Steranko on the staff of Mediascene and Prevue Magazines. He also honed his art of graphic storytelling with Steranko and eventually received story and illustration assignments from Marvel and DC Comics.
Disillusioned by the business practices of the large comics companies, Gale moved into painting and illustration full-time and received a number of large assignments painting Star Trek, Star Wars and 2001: A Space Odyssey, among others, as cover artist for Cinefantastique in the mid '80s and '90s.
Not to be pigeonholed by any one genre, Gale also created numerous automobile cutaways and marketing product designs as well as collectors plates and promos for The Franklin Mint.
Finally, influenced by the art of Britain's Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (and especially the work of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John William Waterhouse), Gale graduated into the fine arts field in 1994 with his New Romantics canvases based apon greek mythology, biblical subjects and the myths of King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table, each following the writ and craftsmanship of the PRB.
Gale works and lives in Douglassville, Pennsylvania.
