I was introduced to the work of John Malta through my buddy Josh Cochran who’s actually his thesis teacher at SVA. John is currently at SVA working on getting his MFA and creating an amazing looking graphic novel called The Professor and the Paperboy. It reminds me of an adult version of Adventure Time, which I think anyone would take as a compliment.
His style is totally fun and sketchy, and he draws people’s noses like pickles. There’s an amazing sense of fun to everything thing he does, so I’m really excited to see how his book turns out. Be sure to look through his work on his site and then pop over to his Tumblr which is pretty great as well.
