A Phoenix, Arizona based artist – this New Jersey native has made a name for himself in the industry by signing on with Zenescope Comics in 2009 where he became the company’s first signed solo artist. He would go on to do work for titles such as Grimm Fairy Tales , The “Wonderland” series and Myths & Legends. Inspired by early Jim Lee work and stories featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Debalfo utilized these imaginative industry staples while he acquired a skill set and good girl art style acquired from the Joe Kubert School of Art where he graduated in 2003. Though originally a cover artist, Debalfo’s skill and reputation have matured over the past few years which has arguably led to his being picked up at Aspen Productions where he has being doing full art by issue for Soulfire.
A convention regular around the American Southwest, Debalfo continues to raise his personal stock by expanding his professional portfolio with not only cover art, but collaboration with other industry figures and solo work for private commission and charitable auction. His wife and sometime muse, Mary, also attends conventions with him and manages their front offices which can be contacted via their maintained websites/social media.
