John G to Exhibit at PIX 2016

John G (The Lake Erie Monster, No Gods No Monsters, Love Again) - JOHN G is an illustrator, comics creator and head of Cleveland based Shiner Comics, Inc. Since the late 90s he's been building a humble following with hundreds of ridiculous, vivid posters and illustration work for a variety of clients like Cleveland Cinemas, Scene Magazine, The Free Times and a multitude of local and national bands and music venues. Since 2009, John G has helped define the visual identity of the hugely successful restaurant Melt Bar & Grilled. With Jake Kelly, he created and published The Lake Erie Monster, an ongoing, rust-belt centered, horror anthology comic. He co-founded and continues to run Genghis Con, an award-winning annual small press and underground comics convention in Cleveland. In 2015 TurnStyle Films debuted Draw Hard, a short documentary about John G and his work, which has since been selected for the 2016 Cleveland International Film Festival. In 2016 he was one of 40 artists awarded the Creative Workforce Fellowship grants by The Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC).
