A word from Marc Johns

Posted by Sarah Sessions on 17/10/2007

1374428772_6bd99a9b88_m.jpg
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. He’s been drawing since he was tiny. He’s not tiny anymore, but he’s not exactly big either. Marc is not sure why he’s talking about himself in the third person.

I generally aim to say as much as possible with as few elements as possible. My work often leans toward humour. Finding the humour in things often leads to finding the truth. I like to create absurd situations, by combining things together that don’t belong, or imagine what inanimate objects would say if they could speak. For instance, the pen I am using to write this draft would probably say: “I’m tired. Can we stop for a bit?” Or perhaps it would say: “I can’t believe you’re making me write this. This is rubbish. Signing cheques would be more inspiring than this.” These are the things I think about. I think about alot of things. I think about thinking. Don’t try it though, it’s not worth it.

I use watercolours in ways you shouldn’t. I make my own sketchbooks. If I smoked, I’d roll my own. I’d rather draw than rent a movie. Don’t try to start a conversation with me about recent films. I haven’t seen any. I play the guitar. If I was a hobo, I’d learn to play the ukulele, because you could fit one in your duffle bag. My artwork and the materials I use are quite compact. You could fit my studio in a large suitcase. I hope you like my drawings, or at least some of them.

I’m also on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/marcjohns

… and here’s my own site, in serious need of a makeover: http://www.marcjohns.com

I get asked frequently about whether or not my art is for sale. It is! If there’s something you’re interested in, don’t be shy, just send me a message and I’ll let you know if it’s available and for how much. I also do prints of many of my drawings.

Marc Johns- Skateboarding Sandpipers

Posted by Sarah Sessions on 17/10/2007

Marc johns-Sandpipers

Oh yes! This delightful image is a true reminder that art is there to be enjoyed,  to bring humour from the abstract design from our creative minds.

I enjoy looking through Marc Johns work as he has a very individual style that brings together 

a soft illustration  with a delightful quirky ensemble of words and images.

Boom box

Now this is another example Marc Johns in action. His simplistic style 

makes you believe

 that a child has drawn the image,

 though for me they remind me of the illustration by Quentin Blake in the 

Roal Dahl  books. 

You also have to admit that he is right about it.

This random design slowly unfolds as you look at it. Just take the time and try to 

un-wind it; see what you come up with. You never know it may just interest you!

I came up with travel. It simply reminds of how chaotic an excursion in to 

another world can be.

Isn’t this just life?
