Civiello's published illustrations have focussed on clients in the editorial and book markets, including Penguin Random House. When Dom graduated from high school, he initially wanted to join the army, but couldn’t due to medical reasons. Dom always had an interest in drawing, but never considered it as a career path. Dom attended and earned a B.F.A. from the Massachuttes College of Art and Design. There he began exploring different fields of illustration and incorporating design and multimedia processes into his work. Upon receiving his undergraduate degree, he attended the Illustration Academy workshop in Kansas City, Missouri. Dom's illustration style is about combining traditional techniques that are very messy and experiential with digital techniques that are more rigid and precise. Because of this, the work can have a natural variety of textures, while still keeping the overall image focused on the narrative or idea. Civiello’s processes flow seamlessly with his sense of design to create images that speak volumes with the least amount of details. Currently, he is pursuing a M.F.A. from the Hartford University Low Residency Illustration program.
