Camron Johnson is an artist/author based out of Central Illinois. His debut graphic novel, BONECHECK (Volume 1) released in June 2018 through Broken Icon Comics. With Volume 2 currently in-progress and slated for a Q1 2020 release, traveling to comic cons and working in his studio have kept him all sorts of preoccupied.

With a strong passion for pen and ink, fantastical nonsense, and all that other good stuff- he encourages those who check out his work to brace their visual brain balls for maximum impact; straight to the cranial memory cavern.

He is also known for his globally recognized cover art and design on the renowned horror novel series, Rabbit in Red (Chianakas).

Other noteworthy works include:

Thy Neighbor: Engage (Creator Owned)

Detective Sol: Blood In The Redwoods (Rayburn)

Nightmares Under the Moonlight(Chianakas)

Children’s Books:  Light the Night (Williams)

I’ve Lost My Special Power! (Whalen)

A Family Story (Roulds)

“Drawing and Illustration has been my passion since a very young age. Sketching and doodling in coloring books quickly escalated to filling up notebooks with stories and designs.  Growing up in Washington, Illinois- I started working seriously in high school and took as many art classes as I could. After graduation, I went to Illinois Central College and received my Associates Degree in Arts and Sciences.  I took a quarter to study Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia before transferring to Illinois State University in Bloomington Normal to pursue the rest of my Bachelors Degree in Studio Art - Drawing (2015).  Since graduating, I’ve traveled the nation to comic cons and events, while working on books in my home studio. I’m excited to see what opportunities await as I continue doing what I love.”
