Johnny is a huge fan of movie, television, and rock-and-roll narratives, which are subjects he returns to again and again in his artwork. Carefully drawn from the perspective of seeing his subject matter onscreen, Johnny pays close attention to gesture, movement and use of negative space. Crowding the edges of the composition, the action in Johnny’s version of these stories seems to continue beyond the scene. The strength of Johnny’s ties to family, friends, and celebrity heroes can be seen and felt in his sensitive portrayals of the people and animals in his world.
