Presentation at Oberlin College, December 1

Me and MJ Robinson are collaborating on an informal presentation / conversation / cartooning workshop taking place at Oberlin College the Monday after Thanksgiving. Our goal with the workshop is to help students figure out their answer to the strange often dubious question artists get, “Where Do Ideas Come From?”

It will be at Oberlin College on Dec. 1st 7 - 9pm. Wilder Hall, 135 W. Lorain Street, Oberlin, OH. Free and open to the public, thanks to the Oberlin Comics Collective.


Ignatz Award WINNER for Promising New Talent 2014

I was recently awarded the Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent. Thank you, to everyone, with my complete heart. What “promising new talent” tells me is that people are rooting for me. I’m being lifted up. And it feels really really good. I won’t let you down. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


DEAR AMANDA, New Comic, Out Now


Belén is saving up to move to Amsterdam and become a writer, but thankfully this summer won’t be lonely. She starts a bittersweet fling with her coworker Ginette, who is (coincidentally) a great source of inspiration for Belén’s writing. I wonder what Ginette thinks of that.

48 pages, $5, 8.5 in x 5.5 in.

Available for purchase online.

My name is Cathy G. Johnson. I'm an artist, printmaker, cartoonist and educator in Providence, Rhode Island. I was recently awarded the 2014 Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent. My first graphic novel, Jeremiah, debuted in 2013. It can be found here.

I make comics, drawings, prints and books about confrontation and sincerity. I draw inspiration from my life and my community, as well as philosophy and critical theory.
