New Jersey-based artist John DeAmicis’ illustrations capture feelings and moments that occur in everyday life, often incorporating quotations, thoughts and other unusual interpretations.
Armed with nothing but a pen, pencil and wit, John describes himself as a “keen observer of life.” He likes to tease out some of life’s more idiosyncratic elements and get people to connect with them. You’ll get to see the world through his eyes, framed by clever satire. His illustrations appeal to a wide range of people, including animal lovers and golfers.
John’s work has been compared to Charles Bragg and Daumier, and has been displayed in galleries all over the world. He’s a wonderful examples the kind of caliber of artist you’re likely to find at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals.
A member of the National Cartoonists Society, some of the more notable owners of John’s work include Sir Elton John, Shirley Maclaine, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Luciano Pavarotti and Henry Kissinger. Stop by one of our festivals and add your name to that illustrious list!
