"When not saving the galaxy from extraterrestrial threats John Bellotti Jr is a budding illustrator located in the most uninteresting town in the United States of America: New York City. John graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York where he majored in illustration. "I always felt in my younger days that traditional painting was the way to go" says John- but once he started experimenting with Adobe Illustrator it became a controversial love affair between John and his Mac. Against the wishes of his mother he continued using Illustrator as his go to program for finishing his artwork. Bellotti hopes to one day make a living doing artwork from his home while sitting in his boxer shorts and ordering pizza from Ignazios but in the meantime he makes his living painting movie and TV sets for Hollywood as a member of United Scenic artists local 829."
