  • John Dearstyne (b. 1943)


    John Dearstyne is an American illustrator who painted the box art for Kemco’s Kid Klown in Night Mayor World for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993.

    Throughout his career, he specialized in humorous illustration, cartoon art, and editorial art services. After receiving a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, Missouri and an M.F.A. in Photography from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, John taught design, drawing, and photography at Oregon State University. As his interest shifted to freelance commercial illustration, John left Oregon State University and moved to Los Angeles, California, where he set up his own studio doing work for advertising agencies, magazines and the film and entertainment industries. He would later relocate to northwest Oregon where he continued to freelance. He is now likely retired.
