Hello! And welcome --
My name is John Sumrow, and I sling ink & paint.

As an artist, it is a humorous story that I want most in my work. I am inspired by shared nostalgia, pithy dialogue, and life’s experience in all of its grandeur and agony. Through ink on the page and paint on a canvas, I strive to convey a sense of lighthearted magic, however fleeting .

Putting out new content to my followers and fans is something that I love to do! Patreon is a way for my patrons and fans to help show their support and help me to keep bringing you new happy monsters, heroes, dragons, and humor on a regular basis!

I'll be showing a lot more behind the scenes photos from my studio, giving insight to projects that's not available anywhere else. Welcome aboard and THANK YOU!

What is Patreon and how does it work?
Patreon is a platform designed to help support the creators and creations you love. It's sort of like a subscription service to your favorite creators. In return for your patronage, you can pick from a selection of rewards such behind the scenes of art making, exclusive monthly postcards, or even custom original art!
If you like my work and you would like to support it; first of all, you are amazing! Choose how much you would like to pledge per month (every single dollar makes a difference!) and take a look at the rewards you would like on the right. If you have more questions you can find answers to most of your questions here in the  FAQ

Please note that you can edit or cancel your pledge anytime!



Your support
Your support allows me to focus on creating awesome art projects, video projects and much more that will hopefully bring you a lot of joy, inspiration, and motivation. If you are an aspiring artist I can also help answer your questions about illustration, how to stay motivated, how to find inspiration and much more.
Your pledges will help me fund art supplies, equipment, and most importantly, free up my time from other jobs so I can focus on creating awesome projects to share with you. I greatly appreciate you supporting my artwork, so I can keep creating fantastical things!


 
My Current Plan:
✦ To create original monthly content towards a published art collection or coloring book.
✦ To create a graphic novel based on original characters from my imagination.
✦ To create a series of paintings based on my favorite songs: "Album Covers that Should Exist"
✦ To share my artistic journey with you and inspire and motivate you along the way!
