RICK JOHNSON- ARTIST
Rick Johnson (aka The World's Smallest Giant) is a writer/artist living in Tuscaloosa Alabama. Having grown up on a steady diet of comic books and horror movies, he naturally thought he could earn a living in one of those fields. Much to his surprise, life often throws curve balls. So Rick took a “real” job and became a productive citizen. But he never outgrew his love of all things macabre. A few years ago, Rick began self-publishing his own brand of horror and science fiction under the banner Phat Daddy Studios Presents. With stories like Bune’s World, LMC-1 and Hard Luck, he continued to refine his approach to graphic storytelling.
Operation Silver Moon marked a turning point. Teaming with award winning writer Bobby Nash gave Rick the opportunity to revamp his drawing style. Taking cues from E.C. comics, Warren Publishing magazines, and 40s film noir, Rick injected a new mood into his art.
Rick has provided artwork for the horror film Upyri and is collaborating with writer Sean Taylor on the science fiction tale A Stitch In Time: The Return of The Invisible Man for IDW.
Currently, Rick is teaming with writer Shane McInnis on a medieval horror tale, Royal Blood, as well as providing cover illustrations for Dark Oak Press and ProSe Productions.
