Clark Jackson is a young man or an old boy from greater Boston, MA.
His work is an exploration of his own boyishness, and reflects subjects which he considers to be “boyish” in our society. These subjects include monsters, professional wrestling, skateboarding, aliens, rock & roll music, comic books and the horror genre.
He is heavily influenced by underground comics of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, classic 1950’s EC horror comics such as “Tales from the Crypt” and “the Vault of Horror,” as well as modern alternative comics. His favorite illustrators are Gary Panter, Mike Mignola, Al Columbia, Jack Davis, Saul Steinberg, Moebius, Art Spiegelman, Mark Todd, as well as many, many others.
He is also influenced by horror, science fiction and action films (particularly from the 1970’s & 80’s), rock & roll music, mummies, devils, werewolves or wolf-men, comic books, zines, puppets, masks, cartoons, stop-motion animation, novels, weird or outdated hairstyles, denim, punks, stand-up comedy, anti-comedy, dark humor, and animals (particularly dogs).
Clark received his BFA in Illustration and Fine Arts in February 2015, and now lives in Portland OR.
