Jon Sarkin became an artist in 1989. His wildly prolific artistic output was created by a condition called "sudden stroke." Jon's distinctive artwork, which draws influence from pop culture, literature, and music, has garnered the attention of art experts and non-experts around the world. Here's the gist of what actually happened to make Jon the artist he is today. Following his stroke, Jon became obsessed with drawing. So he drew, all the time. He painted, made collage, wrote poetry, scribbled over and rubbed dirt into things. Some people noticed and kinda liked it. And Jon drew some more, all the time.
