My Bio

Glendon Mellow, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Honours. [Last updated: 22 November 2021] My art has been featured in numerous science blogs, magazines, books and book covers, and exhibits illustrating the intersection of art + science. I also give talks about my own work, the importance of social media to art promotion, and the growing field of #SciArt.

You can view my LinkedIn profile to learn more about my experiences in science communication, social media management, talks & presentations, and professional illustration. I am currently available for freelance work and speaking engagements. The Flying Trilobite

My personal art blog has been running since 2007. Art in progress, personal news, and the occasional set of photos from bike trips. Lately I'm focused on a Field Guide to Flying Trilobites.

Symbiartic

Our science-art blog appeared on the Scientific American magazine blog network for 5.5 years, and has relaunched as a standalone site. Check for news, interviews, and art analysis written by my co-bloggers and myself: artists Kalliopi Monoyios & Katie McKissick.

SciArt Community & Weekly Twitter Chats I am the founder of the SciArt Community, part of the @HiCommunities Twitter pilot. I also co-host a weekly SciArt Chat with Julia Krolik, typically found on TwitterSpaces each Wednesday at 9pm EST.

I live in Toronto, Canada with my wife Michelle and our 2 boys and our dog Luna. My favourite colour is Naples Yellow.

You can find me on Twitter and Instagram as @FlyingTrilobite. Contact me: glendon.mellow@gmail.com

Had a lot of fun with this over the holidays! If you need to upgrade your illustration tech, enjoy my video review for the Kamvas Pro 16 tablet by HUION. I painted my recent scarab-trilobite painting completely with the Kamvas Pro 16 in ArtRage Vitae. Read the full review for contest deets (open to Canadians only, sorry). Full review on my blog.

Back on DA

Hey all. I've been away from DeviantArt literally for years. The NFT situation has changed that for many of us, and DA's generous detection feature to help combat art theft lured me back. I'm under no illusions that my absurd trilobites and sketchy sketches are highly sought after, or prime-pickings to be ripped off - I occupy a niche, and that's cool. But I also wanted to become a Core member to put my money behind an effort that at its core, respects artists. I've written about issues surrounding artist credit, copyright, sharing, and combatting theft for over 10 years, much of it for Symbiartic.com when we were part of Scientific American Magazine's blog network. The current situation with NFTs is terrible for artists, I truly believe that. Whether or not NFTs become a technology that I find useful in the future (or so ubiquitous we're essentially forced to use them) I don't know. I look around now and see a system perfectly built for scams and theft. It's decentralized so
