Cathy G. Johnson

My name is Cathy G. Johnson. I'm an artist in Providence, Rhode Island, where I make comics, drawings, prints and books about confrontation and sincerity. I draw inspiration from my life and my community.

 

My first graphic novel, Jeremiah, debuted in 2013, and was published by One Percent Press in 2015. My second book Gorgeous was published by Koyama Press in 2016. My upcoming book No Dogs Allowed is coming from First Second 2018.

In addition to my artwork, I am also an educator and organizer. I teach various art classes and workshops throughout New England and North America, with a focus on comic books. On June 3, 2017 I earned my masters degree in Teaching & Learning in Art & Design from the Rhode Island School of Design.

I document my educational work at ComicArtEd.com

I am a founder and organizer of the Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo, which was awarded a project grant from the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts in 2015.
