Jon Haward is a British comics artist. He has illustrated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Judge Dredd, Sinister Dexter and Biker Mice from Mars, among others.

Biography[edit]

Haward was born in Norwich and, while at art college in Lowestoft, he sent out samples of his comics to publishers. Dez Skinn put him in touch with David Lloyd who provided advice on his art and he also met artist David Pugh, who would suggest him as a fill-in artist on Dan Dare where he started in 1990.[1]

He first got his break at 2000 AD in 1993 on a Judge Dredd story written by Garth Ennis.

Haward was also the artist on Classical Comics' adaptations of Shakespeare's Macbeth and The Tempest, moved into the role of art direction for the Hamlet adaptation, providing character designs and rough page outlines for artist David Lorenzo to work with.[2]

Outside of comics he has provided illustrations for a range of projects, including the 2009 British Comedy Awards.[3]
