John DiBiase is a freehand portrait artist from the United States, and has been drawing for most of his life. Inspired at a young age by the concept artwork for the 1993 blockbuster movie, Jurassic Park (by artist Mark “Crash” McCreery), John has had an insatiable love for drawing ever since.
Without previous training, but relentless practice, DiBiase decided to take art classes throughout high school and as an Advertising/Design major at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, PA (where he graduated with an Associates Degree in his major).
After college, John had shelved most of his artistic pursuits to focus on other things, including starting a family. But in early 2011, his passion for art was rekindled and he made the decision to draw every single day – even if only for a few minutes – to try to further develop his craft. The following year, he opened his first online shop to sell prints of his artwork, as well as some of the original drawings.
In the summer of 2017, John began contributing sketch card work for Topps, and has contributed original drawings to multiple series, including many Star Wars sets, their Major League Baseball Canvas Collection, and Netflix’s Stranger Things.
Through social media, DiBiase’s work has garnered the attention of well-known celebrities like Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot, LOST‘s Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly, Guardian of the Galaxy‘s Zoe Saldana, Quantum of Solace/Oblivion‘s Olga Kurylenko, Thor‘s Jaime Alexander, and The Office‘s Melora Hardin, among others! John has also had the pleasure of sharing his artwork with celebrities at conventions and events, including Jeff Goldblum, Zachary Levi, Dan Aykroyd, Christopher Lloyd, Billy Dee Williams, Ernie Hudson, Richard Dean Anderson, Amy Acker, Karen Gillan, Frank Welker, Peter Cullen, Ellie Kemper, Wayne Knight and many more.
Currently, John and his wife Amy reside in Bethlehem, PA with their son Will, and is still feverishly making new freehand drawings when he isn’t busy working on the ever-growing Jesusfreakhideout.com, which he started in 1996.
