TCAF, Toronto Comic Arts Festival, Toronto, ON, Canada, May 9 - 10, 2015

Presentation at Oberlin College

Me and MJ Robinson collaborated on an informal presentation / conversation / cartooning workshop which took place at Oberlin College. Our goal was to help students figure out their answer to the strange often dubious question artists get, “Where Do Ideas Come From?”

You can listen to the audio and view the slides here, thanks to Alex Hoffman of Sequential State.

You can also read Alex's personal account of the presentation here.

My name is Cathy G. Johnson. I'm an artist, printmaker, cartoonist and educator in Providence, Rhode Island. I was awarded the 2014 Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent. My first graphic novel, Jeremiah, debuted in 2013. It can be found here.

I make comics, drawings, prints and books about confrontation and sincerity. I draw inspiration from my life and my community, as well as philosophy and critical theory.
