about John Pound Art

John Pound began by doing underground comix, art prints, comic book covers, and fantasy book covers.

Soon after he decided to focus on humor art, Topps invited him to paint for Wacky Packages stickers, which led to his designing and painting hundreds of the popular Garbage Pail Kids stickers, enjoyed by kids around the world.

He painted covers for Howard the Duck, Mars Attacks®, and Rhino CDs. His commissioned artworks also include magazine illustrations for MAD, BLAB!, and Business Week, skateboard designs for Shortys, and street fashion t-shirts for Stussy.

His art was featured in JUXTAPOZ magazine issue #1 and the street art anthology MORNING WOOD.

His personal art projects include the RAN DUM series (randomly- generated comic pages, art prints, animations, and books, created entirely by writing computer code), and the WOO-WOO series (rough cartoon scenes of magic and loss, often featuring the Eyewiz character). His WOO-WOO series panorama paintings have appeared in BLAB and BLAB WORLD.

He is working on code art book and animation projects.
