Micah Johnson: artist, pro baseball player, and much more. Many people are skilled in multiple things, but don’t always commit the time to become great at all of them. Johnson has worked his way to the MLB and also become a very skilled artist. The second baseman has been on a few different teams and cities in the past couple of years, but that hasn’t stopped his creativity off the field.
Not only can he play ball, but he can paint quite well. As an artist, Johnson has taught himself how to play instruments, paint, and much more. So, he isn’t defined as a ball player, but as a person with many different passions. He explained in an interview with Carry Osborne from Dodgers insider:
“As a human, you have so many aspects of your life,” Johnson said. “I try and find as many passions as I can. If I’m not passionate about something, I don’t do it. I’m passionate about art, and I’m passionate about baseball and music.”
Check out of some of his work below.
Johnson has this statement on his website: “I am proving that you can be focused entirely on multiple passions. Baseball is my first love, I taught myself to love everything else. I play baseball with a fire seldom before seen because I owe it to everyone that took time out of their lives to get me here. I paint with unwavering focus because during those hours, my mind is liberated from the outside world and I can fantasize about make believe.”
We can agree with Johnson when he talks about finding multiple passions and sticking to them. He has made the most of his platform as an MLB player.
Johnson is currently in Atlanta and is on the DL, so we wish him a speedy recovery and hope he continues to put out great work, on and off the field. You can check out his website to look at more of his work and get in touch with him.
