Jason lovefest continues

I’ve been a fan of Jason’s work (aka John Arne Sæterøy) since stumbling across a copy of Why Are You Doing This?, his Hitchcock-esque murder mystery that asks as many questions as it answers. In fact, it might have been purchased from the same Toronto bookstore mentioned in this review of his body of work.

If you like the art of Herge’s Tin Tin (or have a soft spot for European comic art) you should check out some of Jason’s work.

His books are at times moody and have a slightly disturbing quality to them. One appeal is the juxtaposition of the often dark plots and sparse dialogue with the choice of humanoid animals character artwork. The panel work is crisp and matter-of -fact.

Lots more art posted at CasualOptimist.
