John's style does look familiar, but, this is my first learning of him. He is fantastic! I see a moment in time, frozen, in his pieces, in which often, the next moment will either break or make the character. Love that sort of thing! Thank you for such a great read! Su

This art is very sophisticated and beautiful. Often in this genre, I see simplistic work that I find unattractive. I was not familiar with Jon's work and appreciate your bringing it to my notice.
