John Debono-Cullen

I am an illustrator with a background in graphic design based in Sydney Australia. I have a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communications). My illustrations are very character based. I love the process of creating a new character and bringing them to life within an illustration. I have my own particular style of illustration and I use a mix of traditional hand-generated techniques along with digital processes to achieve a look that is new but that also has a very vintage commercial illustrative feel to it. I like to fill my creative work with colourful references to popular culture taken from my many hobbies and interests which usually include a healthy combination of comic books, 1980’s cinema, rock and roll music, vintage action figures, 1950’s movie posters and Saturday morning cartoons.

I was a dual finalist in the 2014 Desktop Create Awards in the Illustration category for my work on Pack of Heroes: A Superhero Card Game and The Red River Shore: Wild, Wild Wind Album Cover. I was also a finalist in the 2014 Sydney Design Awards in the Illustration and Typography category again for my work on Pack of Heroes: A Superhero Card Game. In 2015 I received a Highly Commended Award in the Institutional - Series Category from Illustrators Australia for my illustration work on the genre bookmarks for Ashfield Library through Ashfield/Inner West Council.
