Jon Burgerman‘s an artist, illustrator, designer and whatever you’re havin’ yourself. In short he’s prolific and his work has graced everything from walls to snowboards, galleries to baseball hats. His style clearly comes out of the graphic arts traditions of Japan – brightly coloured, bold lines, manical forms out of which monsters appear – his influences somewhere in the arts universe of Phil Frost, Mr. Jago of the Scrawl Collective and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
On his website he has this to say of himself:
Jon Burgerman is a multidisciplinarian carefully constructing a world in which the narrative of being an artist is played out across a wide variety of media for the distraction, enlightenment and delight of those who choose to tune in.
I love Burgerman’s work; his ease of line, speed, vibrancy and the fact that he loves being described, first and foremost, as a doodler.
