CALIDA BIENVENIDA TO MULTI MEDIA MEXICAN ARTIST CHRISTOPHER JOHNSON

Christopher Johnson lives and works in the municipality of Cuautitlan in Mexico City, Mexico.


Christopher loves to read, sing, watch movies, play computer games, go for long walks, visit parks, go to museums, hang out with friends and in general enjoy life in a responsible and calm way. In general Christopher loves to live simply. He sometimes jokes that he lives like a monk (but with internet). He says that the Monks probably have computers too. Christopher was able to show the priest at the cathedral in Cuautitlan his art gallery at Imagekind on the priest’s computer.


Christopher loves doing almost anything that is art related. He learned to crochet from a book when he was 19 or 20. He also loved art classes in elementary school. In 2007 Christopher got his first digital camera, a 3 megapixel Vivitar. At that point he began to post his artwork to print on demand stores. Since then he has upgraded to a 10.1 megapixel Casio camera.


While Christopher loves photography, he also works in other mediums. Digital art is one of those. Christopher works with his existing photographs and various graphic software programs to create digital artworks and he also creates original digital work such as fractals and kaleidoscopes. He says that floral artwork; particularly floral photography is his passion.


Last fall Christopher began experimenting with both acrylic and oil paint. The supplies are expensive, so he doesn’t paint a lot, but the experimenting continues.


Instructional DVD’s and online tutorials provide some of Christopher’s art training, but mostly he tries new software, experiments and asks questions of other artists when he gets stuck on something. He has become a skilled user of Photoshop and Painter using these methods and continues to learn and grow as an artist in this way.


Drawing and painting with Photoshop and Painter using a graphic tablet has become another type of digital artwork that Christopher does. He enjoys creating digital portraits. Recently he has also begun to experiment with graphic design to create specific designs for holidays and weddings.


Christopher says he is planning to focus on developing graphic design skills and designs for this next year as a means to build a stronger customer base. Photography and digital fine art sell sporadically online and Christopher would like to build a more steady sales stream and income.


All of Christopher’s artwork is available as prints on Imagekind and Redbubble and on gift products on Zazzle. He also accepts special requests for custom digital artwork. Christopher offers his artwork on as broad a product range as possible on Zazzle to give his customers a good selection to choose from. This includes mugs, U.S. stamps, coasters, ornaments, necklaces, greeting cards, mobile phone cases, labels, t-shirts, stickers, magnets, posters, etc….
