Writing for me is hard enough, I can’t even imagine putting words together to form an image. John specializes in drawing and watercolor and has a huge concentration on creating images with text, which is what caught my attention because these famous people (and animals) he draws are so distinct you can recognize them at first glance, yet they’re made out of fuckin’ words. John takes something so simple, like words, and morphs them into an iconic person anyone can distinguish.
A student at Oklahoma State Univeristy studying art (duh) is only 23 years old and has developed an intriguing style that I haven’t seen before, especially with combining watercolor with the ink… that gives the clean, delineated piece another dimension.
