Steve Gallaci, full Steven A. Gallacci (born 1955) is a furry artist, cartoonist and Milfur who lives in Seattle, Washington, USA, with his two dogs. His wife of twenty-two years, long time science fiction and media fan Beverley Clark, died on September 16, 2007.


Gallacci spent 6 years in the United States Air Force as a graphics specialist, including a tour of duty in Germany. After leaving the military, Gallacci started Albedo under the Thoughts & Images imprint.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Steve Gallaci created and published Albedo Anthropomorphics, a black and white alternative comic with anthropomorphic funny animal characters, which has been considered a major contribution in the origins of furry fandom.

Gallacci was a guest of honor at ConFurence 2, held in 1991, and a VIP at RBW 2007; he also was a GoH at Eurofurence 14 in 2008, and Anthrocon 2019.

Convention attendance[edit]


First published in 1983, the last 2 issues of Albedo were produced in 2005 (under the Shanda Fantasy Arts imprint). Among some of the storylines that have appeared in Albedo are Gallacci's own Erma Felna: EDF, a military sci-fi epic featuring some elements of political intrigue, and Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo, which first appeared in the infamously rare Albedo #2.

Gallacci also worked on Fusion, a comic from Eclipse Comics, as well as the Albedo RPG, written by Craig Hilton and Paul Kidd, and based on the Erma Felna storyline from Albedo. He also created Birthright, an indirect sequel to Erma Felna, serialized in the Fantagraphics Books title Critters. Also under his Thoughts & Images imprint, the first three issues of Donna Barr's The Desert Peach and a single issue of his own fantasy adventure, Zell, Sworddancer with art assistance from Steve Adams, was also published.

Other cartoon material includes doing art for episodes of Elin Winkler's Tales of the Fehnnik, published by Radio Comix, and short bits for Ken Fletcher's fanzine Spontoon Island.

He has also done science-fiction art and illustration since the late 1970s, as well as straight technical/commercial illustration.

Irregularly, he produces silver bullets for his "Argent Small arms" line of odd bits. More recently, he has been creating masters for after-market scale model aircraft detail/correction/conversion sets.
