Marc Johns

Victoria, BC, Canada

Marc Johns creates whimsical drawings filled with dry wit and humour. Whether it’s a man with branches growing out of his head that need pruning, or a pipe that’s trying to quit smoking, his characters are simply, sparsely drawn, yet speak volumes with just a few strokes of the pen. Marc Johns’ drawings have been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Athens, and elsewhere. A book of his artwork, Serious Drawings, was published by teNeues. His drawings have appeared in many other books, as well as publications such as Wired, Newsweek, and the New York Times Sunday Magazine. His work is blogged about by someone, somewhere, every day, and many of his fans have tattoos of his drawings. He lives with his wife, two sons, and his drawer full of pens in Victoria, BC, Canada.
