Cathy G Johnson has been nominated for this year’s Ignatz Award in “Promising New Talent” for damn good reason. Visit her and vote next month at SPX 2014. Here’s her seriously good (and unfortunately timely) comic from As You Were #3. Visit this Tumblr next week for our interview with Cathy and more arts!
As You Were is a punk-comix anthology series featuring new stories by our favorite independent artists from punk communities around the world. The theme for issue #3 is “Big, Big Changes”, available for [purchase here from Silver Sprocket].
As You Were is a great read and I recommend it!
Here is the final print, which i have decided to title “Find Your Mouse” for all of those seemingly impossible tasks out there like finding one mouse in an ocean of fields and forests
So after hours and hours of planning and carving I inked and hand burnished the 23” x 40” block. I then used the proof to hand paint silkscreen stencils to print the two blended pulls, and the signature red tail. All in all everything was hand done on this beauty.
