About this title


More than 100 of Johnson's best-loved drawings including: "Build Your Own Rainbow" - "Country Quilters" - "A Day in the Wilderness" - "Tailgating" - "The Last Straw" - "19th Hole" - "I Love a Parade" - "Opening Day"

From the Inside Flap:

Bruce Johnson's humorous and intricate line drawings, including the popular "Tailgating," "Gentle Giants," and "Build Your Own Rainbow," are familiar to many Pennsylvanians, but his reputation as a fine artist extends well beyond the state. Now, for the first time, more than one hundred of Johnson's best-known images are gathered in one place and reproduced in handsome large-format detail.

Sometimes satirical, sometimes wistful, always amusing and involving, Johnson's drawings, which he calls his "statements," have been reproduced as prized limited-edition prints as well as on posters, T-shirts, puzzles, and mugs.

Many of the pieces have outdoor themes--"Sunday Sailors," "Life's a Beach," "Opening Day"--illustrating how people enjoy, make use of, and sometimes abuse the natural world. Others celebrate the imagination: "Floating Fantasies," "Go Fly a Kite," "The Great Humpty Dumpty Disaster." Still others are based on puns: "Brush Fire," "Sub Contractors," "Training Bra." Johnson has also created memorable images for corporate clients including Hersheypark, Reese's, and the Pennsylvania Farm Show.

The captivating art book includes a glimpse into Bruce Johnson's studio. The artist describes in his own words how he works and where he gets his ideas, and presents sketches and behind-the-scenes anecdotes that illustrate his creative process.
