This House of Books features artist Robert Johnson’s “The Wild, Wild, Modern West”. Inspiration for his work comes from Peter Max, Roger Dean, and other 60’s pop-artist’s, and a love of nature found in Montana. He is currently sponsored by Rimrock Art & Frame, and all paintings can be ordered through there website as well.
The medium is what he calls, “Pen & Pixel”; a method of rough, pencil sketches of the subject on a large sketch pad. Once the sketch has taken shape, He continually refines it with tracing paper, until he’s satisfied (partially) with the art and then makes black, line drawings. He draws multiple black & white line renditions until the final inking takes place. After scanning the art into the computer, the black lines are re-drawn, and a 60’s pop art color palette is applied. He often prints on Metal, or canvas.
