John is the artist for Bad Viking. He does all the graphics. Essentially his job is to make Bad Viking games look nice. He only got involved in flash games after his brother Rob began showing him up at the family dinner table. He quickly honed some dormant creative skills and jumped in head first. Now he wonders what took him so long to get involved.
