About JD

John David Deardourff is an artist residing in Washington, DC. In 2012 he received a BFA with an emphasis in printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. JD has exhibited his screen prints in Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and DC. In addition, he has designed graphics for Burton Snowboards and album art for RAMP Records.

John explains his work by saying, “In my collages I remove the positive space information from comic pages until I am left with the vocabulary of comic book art that really interests me: exaggeration, movement, energy, the interplay of sequential imagery, black contour line, and, most importantly, artificial color. Before computers, separators colored comics by hand using a four-color (CMYK) method. I use screen printing to mimic this process.”
