Since Goodman started "The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings" in 2015, she has received numerous commissions and worked on multiple collaborative projects. Her largest commission to date, in 2017, was for the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority's "Art Underground" project. She created 'Subway Muses' posters that appeared throughout New York City's Metropolitan Transit System, and were used as floor-to-ceiling banners in Grand Central Station as part of the "Poetry in Motion" event of the same year.
Based in New York, American illustrator and collagist Johanna Goodman studied at Boston Universityâ€™s School of Fine Art and Parsons School of Design (NYC) where she obtained her BFA in Illustration in 1992. She has been a freelance Illustrator ever since.

In 2017 she was awarded the New York State Council for the Arts/New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship grant for her on-going body of work The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings.
