Mikhail Belomlinsky started drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil, and hasn't stopped since. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, he received a M.F.A. in illustration from the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Art, one of the most respected art schools in Europe. Soon after graduation, Belomlinsky was given an opportunity to illustrate J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, and his journey began. He has worked in the illustration market ever since and has been commissioned to illustrate books, posters, greeting cards, caricatures, cartoons, and digital illustration in addition to a variety of other art-related jobs. 

In 1989, Belomlinsky moved to New York City and has worked as a creative director for Novoe Russkoe Slovo, the largest Russian daily newspaper in the United States. He has published over 100 books worldwide and his work has been featured in numerous galleries and exhibitions.
