About the author:
Marc Johns grew up in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada, in the small town of North Hatley, where he had plenty of time to draw. He received his Bachelors of Arts with Honours in Fine Arts from Bishop's University. He draws almost daily, and has been for as long as he can remember.
In October of 2006, Johns began sharing his artwork online, posting new work on a regular basis. His humorous, witty, and thought-provoking drawings were quickly embraced, and earned him a fast-growing community of fans around the world. The rapidly expanding exposure has led to appearances in books and gallery exhibitions, features in magazines, commissions for the likes of National Geographic, Newsweek, Wired, and Tommy Hilfiger, and a generous amount of attention on blogs. Johns continues to share his prolific output online.
He lives in Victoria, Canada with his wife, two boys, and a drawer full of pens.
I made these drawings for you
Welcome to the world of Marc Johns, where you will find ice cream cones shaped like lightning bolts, hardcore mittens, objects reading books, giant yeti gloves, a rectangular bird who knew only one word ('rutabaga', in case you were wondering), philosophically inquisitive gym socks, a drunken four-door sedan, a polka dot elephant serving pie, and many more things (over 110 in this book) that will amuse, entertain, intrigue, and maybe perplex you.
These are not exactly cartoons. The laughs are not spoon fed. Marc's drawings are witty, insightful, thought-provoking, and more often than not will leave you with a smile on your face, even long after putting the book down.
Marc has been putting his work online since 2006, where it has spread like the flu at a pre-school and ended up being shared on Twitter, Tumblr, and countless blogs. If you've come across his quirky drawings during your internet travels and smirked or chuckled, you'll enjoy this book. Besides, drawings look better on paper than on a screen.
