Live an artful life.
I'm John P. Weiss, a fine artist, cartoonist, and writer. I paint in oils with a limited palette, blending realism with abstraction. I studied painting extensively with American artist Scott L. Christensen. 
I craft whimsical, fine lined cartoons and write elegant stories and essays about life lessons and the creative arts. I'm the author of "An Artful Life: Inspirational Stories and Essays for the Artist in Everyone." Over 44k follow my weekly articles online.

I was once an editorial cartoonist, and my work appears in several editions of Charles Brooks's "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year." 
I prefer the simplicity and elegance of black and white photography, and often use my images to illustrate stories and articles.
My work appears in The Guardian, Medium.com, NBC News, Becoming Minimalist, Mr. Feelgood, Elephant Journal, Good Men Project, Your Creative Push Podcast, Thrive Global, The Ladders, and elsewhere.
A former police chief and 26-year law enforcement veteran, I retired early to become a full-time artist and writer. I live in Nevada with my wife, son, studio dogs, and loyal cat.
