One of the premier talents in the pinball industry, perhaps John's first foray into illustrating pinball machines was with Old Chicago (1976). However, he perhaps best remembered as the oustanding pinball illustrator of the 1990s, having worked on some of the most iconic and/or best selling machines of all time during that era, including the incredibly successful Addams Family and Twilight Zone machines, and the revered classic, Medieval Madness.
Other notable machines graced with his artwork include Bride of Pinbot, White Water, Funhouse, Road Show, Cactus Canyon and too many others to list. The Internet Pinball Database has an excellent list of his credits for interested parties to review.
John is still on top of his game illustrating new games for the Jersey Jack Pinball company, continuing his long collaboration with Pat Lawlor, the equally distinguished pinball machine designer behind Addams Family, Twilight Zone, and many more.
Beyond pinball, John also illustrated some of the arcade artwork for the Cruisin' series of games. The N64 versions of Cruisin' Exotica and Cruisin' World adapt his arcade artwork onto the box covers.
John spent most of his years in the Chicago area, and now lives and works in Tennessee as an avid hiker, dog lover, and plein air painter.
