John Dotegowski is a freelance illustrator who has lived in the western New York area most of his life. Like most of his kind he has been drawing and painting since he was a wee child. He started out normal enough but at some point became fascinated with the fantasy, science fiction and horror genres. This would prompt helpful critiques from his mother when he would show her his paintings like " It's nice..for what it is. But couldn't you maybe paint something like flowers.."
He's a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and works mostly in digital but has been starting to pick up a paintbrush and put oils to canvas once again. He's done mostly game related art for companies ranging from trading card games to rulebook covers as well as novel covers and illustrations plus numerous private commissions.
His full portfolio can be seen on his website.
