Thanks to the jurors for the nomination!

Here are the three comics of mine that are part of my nomination:


Boy Genuis is a combination of two pieces.

Until It Runs Clear is also a combination of pieces.

I'm also going to have a new comic debuting at SPX titled Dear Amanda. More on that soon!

Thanks, I hope to see you at SPX!

2014 Anthologies:
Here are some sample images from my comics that will be printed in anthologies in Spring 2014:

My name is Cathy G. Johnson. I'm an artist and educator living in Providence, RI. I grew up in Minnesota and have a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. I studied abroad for a semester at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, England.

I am an artist who creates comics, drawings, prints and books about confrontation and sincerity. I draw inspiration from personal journals as well as philosophy and critical theory. I explore themes of legitimacy, tension, and the calm, chaotic desire for everything to be okay.

My first graphic novel, Jeremiah, debuted in 2013. It can be found here.

I am available for illustration, comic and commission jobs. Please email me to inquire.
