Full disclosure, Jason has been involved with this here zine from the beginning, but Augusta is seeing more of his work lately than ever, and we wanted you to know what kind of artists we’re dealing with here. If you’ve been to the Book Tavern or New Moon, you might have seen his work either hung, sat, or about where you are. Now he’s moving up in our local art world and we couldn’t be happier to see him gaining the recognition he deserves.
Jack Kirby, Matt Groening, Charles Burns, Art Spiegelman, Jim Woodring, Gary Panter.
What's your favorite food for thought?
All of the foods, except for ones that give you dysentery, and all of the thoughts, except for racist, sexist, and homophobic ones.
What projects are you working on and excited about the most?
One, I just started selling and releasing issues of No Funnies, in the same zine form that Creases comes in, for only 99 cents! I've also set up subscriptions, and it's all accessible
through the No Funnies fanpage on Facebook.
I write down my dreams, read literature, and listen to inspiring, hilarious people.
What's your favorite literature for inspiration?
Joyce's "Ulysses," A Clockwork Orange, Moby Dick, Spider-Man comics from the '70s, issues of Simpsons released via Bongo comics, Adriene Tomine's "Hortisculpture," Best American Comics 2015.
Peter Stitt's recent photography exhibits at 1155 have invoked a spontaneous overflow of powerful emotion in me.
Death Star's reunion show at Soul Bar was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. They channel Can like no other.
Greg Elias' release of the "Secret Guest" record on Academia Tapes (Charleston, SC), along with all of Greg Islands' records on the same label, have all blown me away.
How would you describe your comics?
My comics tend to be literary criticism that disguises itself as low brow humor in order to make the high brow more accessible and entertaining.
Who’d win in a fight, TMNT vs Battletoads? How do you see it going down?
Hahaha! Trick question, you mystery jerk. TMNT and Battletoads would never fight because that would violate the rules of the bro code that they all aspire towards.
The answer to that question is Adams Mitchell, the mystery jerk himself, needs to write a short story about Battletoads fighting Ninja Turtles and release it in Creases.
He's probably too lazy to anything like that.
Besides, the right answer is Casey Jones, it's always Casey Jones.
For all of December, I have two pieces at Sky City, and I have four pieces at Artists' Local.
From December 31 to January 31, there will be an entire exhibit of my work at Artist's Local 1155, and New Year's Eve is the opening night.
