John Gourley is an Alaskan who grew up “off the grid” whose best friends were dogs and his sketch pad. His companions of wildlife, northern lights, silence and whatever sci-fi videotapes he could get his hands on inspired his early art and remain a consistent theme today, as his best friend Mike D said “I didn’t know you did art." John currently lives in Portland with his girlfriend and baby daughter and stacks upon stacks of unfinished art. When he is not doing that he is on tour with his band Portugal. The Man.
