Dave Johnson’s Website

Busily worshipping at the website of Dave Johnson. HERE is where I want to head. On the one hand it all looks effortless, on the other there’s an absoloute control over every thing that’s on the page. Every line is just set done exactly where it’s needed, no pissing about with scratchy line work. While I don’t neccessarily want to become a clone of his, I can see in his artwork things which I would like to see in mine. We’ll see how it turns out.

Even today you can see John McCrea lines in my work (especially close ups of people faces) which is odd, cus I never set out to look anything like John’s artwork – but I did used to go round his house and faff around pretending to draw while he was busy breaking into comics. So I’d obviously picked something up.

Anyway, in from work a couple of hours ago and have done very little but surf the web, so I’m gonna shut the computer down and sit down and do some bloody drawing – even if it kills me.
