A Brief Look: The Art of Paul Jackson

 

Toronto based artist Paul Jackson uses a light touch to depict the inner workings of his subjects. The pen work is precise and delicate — the soft jowl of H.P. Lovecraft and downcast mouth of Ellen Ripley each rendered with Jackson’s stippled pen work.

Jackson’s work does not show answers but possibilities. The disgust from Walt Disney at his drawing table, the pure death brain of Darth Vader. Within each pop culture reference Jackson is there, visualizing the space between himself and his subject.
