Cartoonist Jason’s sad-sack realism occupies a solitary world
The most striking thing about Norwegian cartoonist Jason’s drawings is just how much space there is. He isn’t prone to landscapes or long views: More often than not we’re presented with just a character, maybe two, static in a room. But they tend to be surrounded by emptiness, practically weighed down by the sense of nothing that fills the panel.
I’ve been a fan of Jason’s work for some time now. The earnestness of his stories, coupled by the insidious morality that comes through after a while, just hook me and I’m totally on board with whatever he does.
