"From my point of view John Alcorn is an 'art directors' illustrator'. And that's a compliment of the highest order. He thinks like an art director and makes art directors look good. In the past he was a successful graphic designer and art director at CBS. He also worked at the well known Pus Pin Studio for years before coming at CBS. Both these experiences are reflected in his work. Perhaps in some measure because of his early background, John Alrcorn's illustrations have a power and consciousness of design not easily found in many illustrators' work; When Alcorn works within a prescribed page space the art director has the luxury of being quite certain that Alcorn will consciously make necessary 'design' allowances for the other graphic element on the page and in so doing leave room for the other design elements to take on their intended emphasis..."
