Background

 

I have been a student of art my entire life. I first picked up a pencil around the age of 4 and began to develop a passion for art and design.

 

I’ve worked in a variety of professional design and consulting positions, including creative services at a top professional publisher for more than 14 years and currently UX designer at a large corporation. I am the founder of John Michael Graphics.

Philosophy

 

Sometimes I'm right but I can be wrong. My own beliefs are in my favorite song. The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then, makes no difference what group I'm in. I am everyday people, yeah, yeah.

 

There is a blue one who can't accept the green one for living with a fat one, trying to be a skinny one. Different strokes for different folks. And so on and so on. Scooby dooby doo-bee. We got to live together!

 

I am no better and neither are you. We are the same whatever we do. There is a yellow one that won't accept the black one, that won't accept the red one, that won't accept the white one. Different strokes for different folks. And so on and so on. I am everyday people, yeah, yeah. Wake up everybody.
