John Sloboda is a Graphic Artist working and living out of Cleveland, OH. With a BFA in Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art, John is a life-long fan of just about all things sci-fi and horror related. He is also heavily influenced by music, being a musician himself – writing and playing live throughout the mid-West for more than a decade. His work often reflects many of these passions, whether through depictions of iconic characters or just his fast and loose use of line and color.

John is the Director of Exhibits & Creative at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and former Director of Exhibits + Design at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He is also a regular sketch-card artist for Topps (Star Wars, Stranger Things, the Walking Dead), The Upper Deck Co. (Marvel, Alien, Clerks, X-Files), Cryptozoic (DC Comics, Ghostbusters, the Hobbit), Fright Rags (Chucky, House of 1000 Corpses, Halloween), and Breygent Marketing (Grimm, Bates Motel). Additional work includes illustration for AMC television (the Walking Dead), New Beverly Cinema, Corporate Punishment Records, and the 501st Legion.
