J. P. Weiss (b. 1964)

Truly a renaissance man, John P. Weiss paints landscapes in oils, draws whimsical cartoons, and writes poignant articles and short stories about life. 

John studied landscape painting extensively with American painter Scott L. Christensen. Using a limited palette and strong abstract designs in his representational work, John captures quiet scenes of land and nature.

A former editorial cartoonist for several newspapers, John draws old school, detailed cartoons to illustrate his blog posts and articles. His cartoons appear in several editions of Charles Brooks's Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year

A prolific writer with over 28K followers on, John is the author of An Artful Life- Inspirational Stories and Essays for the Artist in Everyone.

John writes about the creative arts, personal development and life lessons. His work appears on the following sites:

A former police chief and 26-year law enforcement veteran, John retired early to pursue a creative life.
