John (“Skids”) Skidmore
Born and raised in the Philadelphia’s Manayunk neighbourhood, John (“Skids”) Skidmore has been drawing hot rods with a monstrous flair ever since he received his first Hot Wheels car from his dad in ’68.
He started painting and airbrushing on cars along with murals, signs and other media in grade school and continued to build his skills throughout high school, before moving onto the Philadelphia College of Art, where he majored in illustration.
An artist with more than 40 years’ experience, Skids applies his talents both as a freelancer and as an in-house artist with a Philadelphia-based entrepreneur.
Illustration, design, logos, package design, mock ups, pop, trade show booth design, business cards, ads and more.
