Next up for my artists to watch at NYCC it’s Dave Johnson.
Dave started out as part of Gaijin Studios in Atlanta alongside Jason Pearson,Brian Stelfreeze,Adam Hughes & Karl Story.his break out work which is where I remember him from initially was on Superpatriot over at Image Comics.But the work that really stuck with me was his long run on DC Comics vertigo line 100 Bullet’s,his covers for that series are pure masterpiece’s employing great design elements from the past but adding new spins to technique and execution,my favorite run of covers by any artist PERIOD!
He also worked on various animation projects doing character and vehicle design (Justice League,Ben 10,G.I.Joe Resolute)
Currently he does covers for various publishers and along with Dan Panosian & Jeff Johnson hold a event in Los Angeles called the Drink and Draw Social,simply put they get hammered and doodle to their hearts content,my kinda party.
