John F. Simon, Jr. is a visual artist and the author of “Drawing Your Own Path: 33 Practices at the Crossroads of Art and Meditation”. Sitting down every day to draw is the heart of Simon’s creative practice. His technique combines mindfulness and improvisation – becoming aware of and giving space to the creative source. New drawings can be seen daily at www.iclock.com.

As one of the pioneers in the development of Software Art, Simon’s seminal work Every Icon was included in the 2000 Whitney Biennial. In 2011, Simon collaborated with Icelandic singer Björk to write an app for her album, Biophilia, now part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Simon’s artworks can also be found in the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Simon currently lives and works in Sugar Loaf, New York.
