I guess you can’t escape your own destiny, if doors keep opening up and they are all heading in the same direction, don’t deny your own future by not moving forward… -John D..”

Starting around age 5 John began redrawing everything his eyes touched, vehicles, people, plants, cartoons, there was no limit to his curiosity.

By age 17 he started turning his talent into real products. When he was in his twenties he was selling all types of art. About 1997¬†he got into making decals and tshirts, selling them online and at outdoor events. His first website…backcountrydesigns.com

He Sparked a Decal and Tshirt Revolution

“It was absolutely amazing to live thru” says John. “Everywhere I went people were chasing me down at the gas station, at the McDonald’s, basically anytime I was out in public.” They wanted his decal designs that he had displayed prominently on his back window. John began to travel the south selling his decals “Bayed Up” , “Deer Skull” , “Redfish Tail” just to name a few. He was on a roll and was living a dream. He turned his skill into painting murals and canvases, selling prints and originals as fast as he could muster them.

Tragedy Strikes

It seemed that John could do no wrong at this point. He was doing what he loved and things were going way better than expected. He went to an event one weekend and his booth was so busy it took him 20 minutes just to make his way out of his own booth for a lunch break and another 20 to get back in. “I never seen anything like it in my life!”, he exclaims.

Then one night while he was out with some friends the unthinkable happened. John was involved in a serious head trauma. He started having seizures immediately and was rushed to the Hospital. The doctors told him and his family he might not make it. His brain was swelling and creating pressure inside the cranial cavity. At the last possible moment before the Doctor was about to have to perform a risky drilling operation into John’s Skull the swelling ceased. The nurse gave John some medicine the night before and it started to work. However he wasn’t out of the woods yet.




It took John almost a year of speech therapy to get back to near normal speaking capacity. Which was great since the doctors initially told him that he might never speak again or be incapacitated. One thing that was revealed to him thru his recovery -his art ability had increased exponentially. He was able to draw, create, and paint at a whole new level.
