About Me

I’m an author, illustrator, puppeteer, animator, designer, and musician. I create stories about nature, both wild nature and human nature.  I’m available for illustration, writing, design, theater, animation and puppetry projects. Let’s talk! 

To contact me, send an email to john (at) fablevision.com. 

As a founding member of FableVision Studios in Boston, I’ve spent the last twenty-five years creating award-winning animation and educational media for children of all ages. Along the way I’ve also written and illustrated four picture books, created animated films, and drawn lots of webcomics. I’ve also built and performed puppet shows, designed scenery for theater, experimented with different mediums like cut paper and crankies, taken a lot of nature photos, and started a blog about art and nature. Many of my online stories and comics are available to read here

I’m also available for school and library visits, either in person or online (read more about my school visits here.)

Here are some interviews and guest blog posts I’ve done:
