Hey there. My name is John. I draw a lot of pictures in large part because I want to spend my years doing creative things that talk about things that are important. Visual arts should direct people to think about decent and worthwhile things. I write about that and try to make things that reflect that value.
The point of this website is to organize my art and writing into a reasonably organized gallery for people to enjoy and think about. I am available for contract work on a basically perpetual basis, and I might also have some stuff you can buy if you would like to support my work. If you wanna learn a little about how I do my work, check out my Process Page.
