J.J. Lendl is an artist, illustrator, and designer originally from Pittsburgh. His unique artwork injects vintage sensibilities into contemporary pop-culture subjects, pulling from numerous artistic styles and creative influences.

J.J. works with such clients as 20th Century Fox, CBS, IDW Comics, and Acme Archives. He's perhaps best known for creating The X-Files Poster Project, an officially-licensed series of over 200 theatrical-style posters, each dedicated to an episode of the cult sci-fi television series. His work has been featured by numerous media outlets and exhibited in museums and art houses.

Along with his work in the arts, J.J. also serves as a youth mentor, primarily in public library settings. Prior to becoming a full-time artist, J.J. served as a teen specialist and creative technology mentor at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. These days when he's not working at his art desk, you can find him working with teens in Youth Services at the Cleveland Public Library.

J.J. currently lives in Lakewood, Ohio (just outside of Cleveland) with his wife Skyler and their cat, Tilly.
