John McClellan: Illustrator, Designer, Writer. I first became interested in art at age 10, drawing portraits and comics. When I became 21 I enrolled in “The American Academy of Art” in Chicago, where I studied figure drawing and fine art.
I later transferred to Columbia College and was introduced to advertising design. While attending Columbia, I freelanced for various advertising agencies doing storyboards and magazine page design.
After years in advertising, I became the creative director for Soft Sheen Hair care products. There, I was responsible for all areas of design and illustration. It was also where I created my first professional comic book series. Jonathan Fox “The Armory Connection” and “The Silent Killer”. In 2015 after 5 years of hard work, I released the latest version, Jonathan Fox in “The Monster of Egypt”. A 84 page full color graphic novel, available online at indyplanet.com
