Artist Interview: Michael DeForge Is King Trash

The world of child mafias, gooey relatable beasts, funky leathery space dudes, soft bodies, diseased bodies, and crusty bodies, is the world of DeForge. Toronto-based Michael DeForge is running amuck in the independent comic’s scene. He is consistently putting out top-notch work executed in his very distinct style, a style that allows for plenty of room for experimentation while still being immediately recognizable as the “DeForge touch”. At age 24, with just a few years solidly devoted to comics, it’s amazing to imagine what he will achieve in his lifetime. On top of that, he does prop and effects for the wonderful Cartoon Network series Adventure Time. He has the drive. He has the look. He has it all. He is King Trash.

Canadian illustrator Michael DeForge’s portfolio recalls the festering goodness/grossness of cartoon classic staples Ahh Real Monsters and Ren & Stimpy that made your eyeballs feel like they were covered with a layer of prismacolor slime. I love his posters for bands such as Xiu Xiu and Les George Leningrad. Very fitting.
