I am very excited to showcase today’s ferociously talented artist- John Hendrix, of St. Louis. More specifically, his sketchbooks. However- his client work is nothing to bat an eye at!! John’s client list would make any designer blush (Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Equire.. to name a few).
Every Sunday, John attended church and would sketch during the sermon “though I don’t bring my watercolors with me- that waits till I get home.” A series entitled Drawing in Church Volumes 1-5 are on display and can be viewed on John’s website, here. He depicts ornamental imagery with beautiful typography and epic scenes. This would make a great exhibit.
To see all of John’s spectacular work, check out his portfolio and blog. Also, check out his beautifully illustrated books, John Brown: His Fight for Freedom which can be purchased here and Nurse, Soldier, Spy: The Story of Sarah Edmonds, a Civil War Hero which can be purchased here.
