My name is Cathy G. Johnson. I grew up in Minnesota and currently live in Providence, Rhode Island. I have a BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture and a Concentration in Book Arts 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 and artistsí books that work with sentimental thought, humor and sincerity. I draw inspiration from personal journals as well as philosophy and critical theory. I explore themes of legitimacy, youth, fear, 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.
