Growing up as an 80's latch-key kid and living on a steady diet of cable TV, Japanese manga, evil movie monsters, pixel chomping Atari foes and sugary snacks turned out to be fertile ground for an insightful imagination. For 15 years, John has honed his interdisciplinary techniques in illustrative story telling and design thinking to captivate the consumer for all his clients. Although he likes to tell people he's telepathic, it's best to contact John by phone or email.
