Participating Artists - Anthony Palumbo
Anthony Palumbo was born in Michigan in 1980 and grew up in Pennsylvania. His father, Donald Palumbo, is an English professor with a passionate and scholarly interest in science fiction literature and Marvel comic books. His mother, Julie Bell, became a professional illustrator after meeting Boris Vallejo in 1990. Boris, Julie, and Donald proved to be powerful influences on Anthony. When he graduated from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1998, Anthony was showing in Philadelphia art galleries and making additional income from portrait commissions. After a decade in the fine art world, Anthony happily surrendered to the forces of genetic predisposition and began working as an SF and fantasy illustrator in 2009. He's done work for Night Shade Books, Wizards of the Coast, and Fantasy Flight Games among others. Today, he shares a studio in Philadelphia with artist Winona Nelson and their mischievous cat Diegotron 9000.
