Deforge is a name that might not be well know to most readers, but he is a talent well worth watching. Expect to see his name come up much more often at awards season. Lose, and his Top Shelf 2.0 webcomic Cave Adventure, are fantastic examples of Deforge’s talent.
The article describes Deforge’s art as “these inky, oily, sludgy things where everything is greasy and dripping”, which is very appropriate. The word I think of is ‘syrupy”. It’s like a mash-up of two current Canuck art darlings Marc Bell and Clayton Hanmer.
