Jack took a foundation course at Hastings College in the UK, but beyond that his skills are self-taught. “My father is a professional illustrator, so as well as learning from him I got to see what is required beyond good ideas and draughtsmanship,” says Jack.
Like most other comic artists, Jack has a fairly traditional creative process. First, he sketches his images in blue pencil, then inks the line work and fills in the colour. The only difference is he does everything digitally, from the sketching through to the finishing touches.
With his strong, expressive lines and flat colours, Jack’s style is rooted in the world of hero comics. He strives to bring a narrative to each individual image, and there is often an added layer of meaning, a hint of humour or something slightly unusual in his work.
