Blaise Larmee is an American cartoonist, critic, and publisher, best known for his graphic novella Young Lions. He is not one to let his work speak for itself. He one of the most talented and challenging artists. Treading the line between new aesthetic and pop art, with a heavy dose of postmodern whimsy, portions of his oeuvre evoke Murakami and early newspaper comics, while others suggest the “unmediated" school of photographers, like John Divola or Taylor Radelia, while others seem straight out of early twentieth century academia. At once highly theoretically structured and conceptually apathetic, he’s a talent to watch and a particularly interesting presence in comics these days. Very challenging. What he lacks as a storyteller, he potentially makes up for with penciling strength. He is a young hipster living in Brooklyn.
