Growing up in Queens, John Schoenherr began drawing in order to communicate in his multi-lingual neighborhood. He studied at the Art Students League while in high school, learning etching and lithography from Will Barnet. During summers and weekends in the Adirondack Mountains, he took up rock climbing and spelunking. The young artist also continually visited the museums and zoos of New York City. After graduating from Pratt Institute of Art in 1956, Schoenherr began working as a free-lance illustrator and continued with commercial work for over twenty years. During the 1960s and 70s, he illustrated dozens of paperback books for Pyramid and Ace and many children's publications. However, he is most known for his science fiction magazine covers and drawings.
