I mean in my opinion – quite obviously yes! But not everyone agrees, as artists Jason Murphy found during his years at art school.
Jason Murphy’s love of cartoons began at an early age. in the early 80s when Murphy was a child, his grandfather used to cut out the strips from the funny papers and bring them to him. “I remember being mesmerised by them, the way the paper fibres soaked in the ink, the smell, everything. I began drawing at that time.” he says.
Many years later Murphy was discouraged from his leaning towards cartoonish imagery as it was felt to be too childish and trite. Tutors in art school like to push students to explore every angle possible – especially if they arrive at school with a fixed style. He was encouraged to make more ‘sophisticated’ artworks.
Years later he returned to this style and has not looked back.
