Born in rural northern Pennsylvania to a cemetary caretaker and a coal-miner's daughter, John Malloy began drawing at very young age. He later earned a background in old master's style painting and has since been self-taught in fine art, illustration, comics, and design.
His illustrations have been featured in a variety of publications, including The Big Book of Contemporary Illustration and the 'Illusive 3' Book of Contemporary Illustration.
In sequential art [comix] he has designed and illustrated musician-interviews for the award-winning Lemon Magazine, and is presently at work on a semi-autobiographical graphic novel titled, "Queasy," which appears in Image Comics PopGun Anthology #4.
He currently lives with Amy, his heroine, and Lucita, his steed [a chihuahua].
He is available for freelance and commission.
