Born in Los Angeles, California, Chris Dellorco did not always have dreams of being an artist; he graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a degree in Developmental Economics. However, it was not long before Dellorco felt the pull of a more creative field and switched his career to illustrative work.
Entirely self-taught, Dellorco’s career has spanned all aspects of illustration; he has done notable work in film, children’s products, and books. Dellorco is perhaps best known for his work with Disney, for whom he has produced many posters and home video packaging covers, including the cover for “The Lion King” and “Lilo and Stitch.” Dellorco has also illustrated many award-winning movie posters, including “Conan the Barbarian,” “Revenge of the Nerds,” and “Coming to America.” Dellorco has shown his artwork for many years in the Society of Illustrators Annual West Coast Exhibit and the Image Arts Gallery Row in downtown Los Angeles.
