POSE (Jordan Nickel) began work as a graffiti artist and his studio work is strongly influenced by this. “My artwork is pretty cut and dry,” POSE says. “I’m taking from the world around me – whether it be signs, or my wife’s old childhood books.” Using vivid colours POSE captures slices of comic art alongside advertising graphics, collage, sign painting and graffiti and literally lets his imagination run wild. Take a look through his gallery of work at and you will be taken back to some favourite Comic Book Memories.
