Steven Belledin was raised in Pennsylvania and started his career completing high school art assignments for his older sisters. 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. After a couple years recovering, he finally began plying his trade in 2000 and continues to plod ahead, tickled that he gets paid to do something he loves. His work has frequently been included in the pages of Spectrum and has occasionally been found on the walls of the Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators and galleries throughout the United States.
His clients include Harper Collins, Estee Lauder Companies, Wizards of the Coast, Upperdeck, Sabertooth Games, Alderac Entertainment Group, Fantasy Flight Games, Hidden City Games, Hidden Kingdom Games, among others.
Steven currently resides in Seattle, Washington, with his wife and needy dog.
