NEW BRITAIN â€“ The Art League of New Britain will be hosting â€śClose Up with Jon Sideriadis,â€ť an award-winning illustrator, author and art professor on Monday.
Sideriadis will be discussing the writing and painting process of his recently published mythology book, Astromythos, via Zoom at 7 p.m.
The free online event will explore astromythos, which is a Greek word the artist has purposefully invented. Astromythos combines the words â€śastronomyâ€ť and â€śmythology,â€ť two subjects for which Sideriadis is passionate about. The word ultimately translates to â€śthe star mythology,â€ť and it also serves as the title for his fictional world.
Sideriadis is the Illustration Program Coordinator at the University of New Haven. His work has been published in films, novels, comics, albums and in the gaming industry. He has worked in Hollywood as a creature-effects artist and sculptor.
