MILLERSBURG – Since 2011, Millersburg native artist Dana Bellis has been illustrating for PA Game News Magazine. From the beginning, Dana chose to use family members as models for most of the illustration work for the publication.
The October 2012 PA Game News issue, his first cover, featured his uncle Larry Bellis, cousin David Bellis and David’s son, Colt as the subjects in the painting entitled “Through the Generations.” It was painted to represent three generations of PA Game News readers and, as Dana notes, “it actually did!”
In 2014, Dana painted his first “throwback” cover titled, “Days Gone By,” requested by the magazine to recreate a hunting scene from 1964. Now, the artist has produced his sixth Game News cover, entitled “Deer Camp Memories” to be published in the December 2016 issue.
For this latest piece, Dana was approached by the magazine’s Senior Associate Editor and asked to create a 1966 deer camp theme similar to his popular December 2014 cover. He was told by the editor, the editorial staff and readers really enjoyed that cover and the magazine was hoping for something with a similar nostalgic feel.
