Doug Johnson as the founding editor of Cave Moon Press, started helping poets with book design, illustration and artwork ten years ago. He has been drawing since he was a teenager and was fortunate enough to encounter Alfredo Arreguin an internationally renowned painter who encouraged him to keep drawing.
He has two series you have here on Fine Art of America. His more developed pieces are part of the Sombra de Arreguin series (Shadow of Arreguin) as he continues to study the style of his master, like artisans did in generations past.
His other series is called 'Cracked Pots' in which a single line drawing comes from a terracotta pot to combine human and organic forms. Originally started as a gift to his younger sister as a tribute to her health struggles, Johnson dedicates all the drawings to things people are crazy about, knowing that what we are crazy about gives us hope for another day.
Doug is new to Fine Art America and working to build his galleries, so come back and visit. Send him an e-mail at cavemoonpress.com if you have more detailed questions.
Doug Johnson joined Fine Art America on March 29th, 2016.
