Our Artist Spotlight this Tuesday is none other than Michael DeForge. At only 25, DeForge has already authored an impressive body of great artwork, including posters, illustrations and comics, and is showing no signs of stopping. DeForge’s style is dynamic and eclectic, drawing on everything from punk zines and gig posters to Japanese horror comics, culminating in some wonderfully idiosyncratic work. His keenly observational story-telling, as well as his affinity for the absurd, make him a favorite among comics readers of all kinds. Definitely a cartoonist to keep an eye on.
DeForge’s brand new book, Very Casual, is available from Koyama press this May. Check out his other work on his tumblr and website.
