May 2012 Marc Johnson-Pencook
For this art show I have put together a cross section of my black and white artwork from the past five years along with some older pieces that represent my personal landmark work.My drawings can be organised into "series" and "sequential" art.A lot of my single composition belong to a running series;(skeletons,bugs,musician portraits).The book illustrations fulfill my challenge of creating sequential art.
I have always loved comic art and film making as storytelling devices. Illustrating a book creates a decision making process of pacing the pictures in a strategic way so that they work in conjunction with the words and decorate the readers' mind with images. So for this month of May I share my imagination with you.
