ConGlomeration is proud to announce that Steven Belledin will be our Artist Guest of Honor for 2010.
Steven Belledin was raised in Pennsylvania and started his career completing high school art assignments for his older sisters in exchange for enough money to buy more Swedish fish than he probably should have eaten. After high school he fled small town life to hide among the drones of New York City and become an oil painter. Four years later, he stumbled out of the gates of Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute into the harsh light of the “real world” and immediately dove head-first into the brick wall of illustration. Though it took him a couple years to recover, he finally began plying his trade in 2000 and continues to plod ahead, tickled that he gets paid to do something he loves. Steven currently resides in Queens, New York, peering out at the world through a window he finally owns. One wife, no pets.
His clients include Harper Collins, Wizards of the Coast, Upperdeck, Sabertooth Games, Alderac Entertainment Group, Fantasy Flight Games, Hidden City Games, and Hidden Kingdom Games, among others.
Exhibitions include Spectrum 13, 14, and 15, Spectrum: the Exhibit at the Museum of American Illustration, the Society of Illustrators 49th Annual and Traveling Exhibitions, the Society of Illustrators 50th Annual Exhibition, the Society of Illustrators 17th and 18th Members Open, and the Prevailing Human Spirit show. Awards include the Gencon Art Show’s 2008 Best In Show. You can view Belledin’s online portfolio here.
