Jason: The Teen Years

Jason: Then and Now

One of the most interesting things about following artists’ careers is seeing their styles evolve from mimicry of their influences to their own, unique way of depicting the world. Very rarely do we get to see an artist’s very earliest attempts at developing a style, mostly because so many artists are too ashamed of their early work to share it.

Not so Norwegian cartoonist Jason, who’s started a blog to showcase – in chronological order – his early work. It’s a fascinating look at a world-class artist figuring out his craft.

Ha, wow these are great, thanks. I’m already conjuring up alternate in histories in which Jason becomes a fill-in artist at Marvel in the 80s (Spoiler: He becomes so popular that the early Image explosion is replaced by the funny animals explosion. Superheroes are never the same again).
