“His art appeared on book and magazine covers, in ads, on movie posters such as King Kong, Star Wars and the Towering Inferno, and on U.S. postage stamps, most memorably, the Santa Claus Christmas Stamp in 1983 and again in 1991. He painted beautiful women of all ages, cars…classic and innovative, disaster scenes, landscapes, seascapes, sporting events, festivals, airplanes, monorails …whatever he was asked to do. With his ability to see things from a different perspective, John’s illustrations depicted the full spectrum of life-past , present, and future. This quiet, contemplative genius will not soon be forgotten.” – on John Berkey
