I've been getting really into comics lately, and that's probably one of the reasons that Jack Teagle
is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists.
I'm told that envy and jealousy are terrible and pointless feelings, so I try my best to lock them away when I look at Jack's work. It would be easy to envy the way everything he does is awesome, or be jealous that he completely nails that elusive combination of a simplistic style and bold colours, or cry that it all seems so effortless (although I'm sure it's not). But I've found the best thing to do is let the awesome insanity of his work whisk you away into his little world for a while, and just be glad that it exists.
Jack seems to churn out work at a crazy pace, and he's been updating his tumblr
this week with these new paintings. They're part of a show called Lost Plot
at Here Gallery in Bristol, UK. The show opens on September 7th and runs right through to October 6th.
Lost Plot also features work from Liam Barrett
, Rose Robbins
and Simon Daly
. If you'll be in or around Bristol in the next month you should definitely check it out.
