Best Illustrator 

John G.


You may know John G. from Scene's annual Comics Issue each January, which he curates, but more than likely you know the intrepid illustrator from the wonderful array of projects he's involved with in Cleveland. The whole artistic identity of Melt Bar & Grilled is John G.'s doing (those monthly special illustrations!). He co-founded the annual independent comics and small print convention Genghis Con, and he co-created the comic book Lake Erie Monster with his friend and high-school classmate Jake Kelly. Last year, he was awarded a Creative Workforce Fellowship grant, which naturally expanded the arc of his terrific and always fascinating career here in Cleveland.
