Joy Johnson has more than 58,000 followers on Instagram (@happy_humbug76). Johnson was anointed an #MCRtist on Instagram after she gained traction online for her posted drawings of members of My Chemical Romance, a Newark, New Jersey, rock band.
“It makes me feel a sense of responsibility, and maybe also a need to be cautious,” Johnson says. “I don’t want to negatively influence anyone, offend anyone, disrespect anyone. I try to keep what I say positive and, if the subject of my art is negative, explore it in a way that’s healthy.”
