For many years, W.B. was known for his eye catching airbrush illustrations, mainly using Iwata Airbrushes and ComArt Acrylics on Crescent Art Papers and Illustration Surfaces. With the coming of the digital age, W.B. traded in his trusty airbrushes for a mouse and digital tablet, using Adobe Photoshop, Macromedia FreeHand and Corel Painter in place of paint. W.B. Johnston's creative imagery has translated well to the new media, elevating W.B. to the pinnacle of Photoshop artistry.
WB's artwork has been honoured by The Japan Creators Association, Airbrush Action, G.D.I.C., C.A.P.I.C., and others, appearing in shows and annual volumes produced by these organizations.

W.B. Johnston has now added photography, to his list of creative endeavors. Armed with a shiny new Nikon camera, WB captures images in a variety of places, whether belly down in a swamp, or strolling along the waterfront. These images are often taken into Photoshop where wondrous new creations emerge. Please contact W.B. Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the availability of prints or reproduction rights to these images
Some of W.B. Johnston's more amazing recent images have been a series of guitars, including illustrations of Hamer Newports, Fender Stratocasters and Telecasters, Gibson Les Paul, and Paul Reed Smith Guitars. In fact,the attorneys for The Paul Reed Smith Company were concerned that W.B.'s illustrations look so real (thanks guys!) that folks might think he makes real PRS guitars. W.B. does not make real PRS guitars nor does he work for Paul Reed Smith.
