Steve Campbell’s blog and website

Home to wonderful wildlife artwork, silly comic strips, exciting fantasy fiction, original poetry, and interesting commentary on life.

Thanks for stopping by. ♥


This website has Art, Photography, Fiction, Poetry, and Commentary. Honest. True story.

I’m a semi-retired wildlife and landscape artist, cartoonist, poet, and independent author of fantasy fiction.

I’m a wildlife and landscape artist by profession, though my CV includes photographer, illustrator and art teacher.

Drawing cartoons is another passion. I never pursued syndication, but a local newspaper published my comics. My favorites are in the Art Blog section.

Finally, I’m a self-published author. I write small-town suburban country fantasy fiction, which features a strange town I call Ridgewood. It began many years ago as Ravenwood (an honor to Edgar Allan Poe). My stories are in the Writing Blog section. Many of them have a reoccurring character named Vree Erikson (sometimes spelled Erickson). My stories span nearly a lifetime of writing.

Thank you for choosing to follow me on this journey. I look forward to hearing from you.

The Blogs

Welcome to the section of my website where things get personal—my online diary/journal of art, writing, and life. The content of my blogs typically includes photos and occasional scans from documents. I haven’t included any videos or animated GIFs, but I may try my hand at putting up some videos of my art in the future.

Steven L Campbell is my true identity, not an anonymous persona, so I’m reluctant to get too personal in the Life part of my blog. A person needs their privacy. Nuff said.

I want to simply share my interests and hobbies with the world … if the world will have me.

Below are links to my blogs for everyone who doesn’t want to use the menu.

The Blogs

Art Blog – A plethora of my drawings, paintings … even some comic strips.

Imagine. Create. Become.


Writing Blog – Selected writing by yours truly. I self-published my fiction and poetry years ago when I was in high school. I did the same in college, and I continued it when I started my first website in 1994. My author names have been Steve Campbell, Steven Campbell, Steven L Campbell, and Campbell Stevens.

Writing is my passion. These are my stories.


Life Blog – Here you can find selected insights, observations, and opinions about life in general—the personal, but not-too-personal, stuff.

What goes into the mind comes out in life.



I’m busy thinking about my next project and what to feature at my blog this week. But no matter how busy I am, I always make time for my readers and followers.

Do you have questions about art or writing? Did you see or read something at my blog that has you wanting to share your thoughts with me? Maybe we met somewhere during my lifelong travels and you would like to say hello. Or perhaps you want to be part of my mailing list when I offer freebies.

Comment here, or leave me comments at my About page; I love hearing from my readers and fans.
