JON SARKIN is a prolific, even compulsive, artist who creates elaborate drawings and paintings cluttered with words and images. His work has been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, ABC Primetime, This American Life, GQ, ArtNews, and galleries in New York, Los Angeles, and around the world. The inspiring story behind his metamorphosis from chiropractor to artist, a result of deep-brain trauma, is detailed in the upcoming biography Shadows Bright as Glass by Amy Ellis Nutt, to be released in April 2011. Jon lives and works in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
