Artist Mitchell Davidson Bentley spent the last 20 years moving physically from place to place and artistically from
traditional oils to cyber compositions. Trained in the traditional medium of oil by his mother, and inspired by his
grandfather’s love of science fiction, Bentley began his career as a full-time science fiction artist in 1989 from his home
base in Tulsa. While actively involved in the science fiction art world, Bentley also moved from Tulsa to Austin to Central
Pennsylvania where his search for knowledge earned him bachelor’s
and master’s degrees from Penn State University.
Over the same period of time, Bentley shifted from the more traditional oil painting to airbrushed acrylics, and since 2004
has been working exclusively in electronic media.

As the Creative Consultant of Atomic Fly Studios, Bentley produces cover art, marketing materials and Web sites while he
continues to produce quality 2D artwork marketed through the AFS Web site and at science fiction conventions across the
United States.

Bentley has lectured at universities, worked in film, edited publications and served as Artist Guest of Honor at more than a
dozen science fiction conventions. He has also earned 35 awards, is a lifetime member of the Association of Science
Fiction and Fantasy Artists and is currently serving as President.

He currently resides in Harrisburg, PA with his partner Cathie McCormick and their spoiled cats, Mr. Spike, Zöe and
