Hi, How Are You

The year 2006 saw Johnston’s artwork included in the Whitney Biennial of Contemporary Art, as well as gallery shows in London and New York. In his drawings and paintings, Johnston explores themes of the Everyman,! unrequited love, the prevalence of evil in the world, redemption, Christianity, comics and myth. His cast of recurring characters includes Joe the Boxer/Everyman, a many-eyed demon, cat-people, Captain America, the Devil, a frog named Jeremiah the Innocent, and his muse “Laurie.”

And if you have no idea who I'm talking about, check out the best documentary of last year.
