This is POP! Here is a soundtrack in Spotify to the new Jason book POP! picked by Jason himself.
POP! is the first book just focusing on Jason as an illustrator. The book is a collection of inspirations from both high and low culture. Here we find characters and artists from music, literature, film and comics placed in the well known Jason universe. The meetings of various art forms create a new whole, but also give us insight in the creative process that the readers of Jason comics will know.
Order POP! here.
Larrys botaniske studier (Larry’s botanical studies) is a collection of black and white illustrations from the illustrator Lars Aurtande. The illustrations are detailed studies of nature and technology in a fantastic reality not far from our own. The book is without text but the pictures tell stories that are interesting to explore for both children and adults. Order it here.
