Shiner Comics – John G
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 Melt Bar & Grilled, Cleveland Cinemas, Scene Magazine and a multitude of local and national bands and music venues. With Jake Kelly, he created and published The Lake Erie Monster, a 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 and took home the Jury Award for Best Ohio Short Film. In 2016 he was one of 40 artists awarded the Creative Workforce Fellowship grants by The Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC).
