John Dixon is a Disabled Veteran and Traditional Comic Inker. He was born and raised in a little town called Askin, NC but moved to Wilmington, NC in 2013. He joined the US Army in 1992 and spent four years serving his country. He was severely injured in 1995 just a few months short of re-enlisting. So, he left the service and came home to start his life as a civilian. He worked for almost 16 years as an Engineering Technician and in 2011, he started inking when he saw that his military disabilities were no longer going to allow him to do his job at Cherry Point.
As a child, his father would buy him comic books when they would go shrimping on weekends and that’s where he gained his love of all things comics related. So, when he was trying to decide what hobby that he would like to do, he decided that he would like to ink comic books as well as follow in the footsteps of his grandfather who was a pen and ink artist.
He has inked comic books for many different companies and is always looking for new projects.
He recently received a commission along with comic artist Criss Madd to create an anniversary drawing for Mackenzie Hancsicsak (Little Kate on NBC’s Award Winning TV Show “THIS IS US”), for her Mom and Dad.
His past projects include:
Writer/Artist: Good Medal Award from Military Writer’s Society of America for Children’s Book “Mommy, What Is A POW/MIA?” (2008)
