An artist’s canvas is sometimes equally as evocative as the art he puts on it. John Kenn Mortenson didn’t choose something extravagant like a street side building or the Sistine Chapel, but his drawings certainly have found an odd home. Where you ask? For Kenn’s art he’s chosen the humble 3×3 inch canvas of a Post-It note, canary yellow hue and all.
JKM is a successful writer and director from Denmark. When he’s not busy creating children’s television, Kenn likes to draw creepy worlds and laughable monsters in simple pen and ink. His monsters seem like the ghastly cousins of characters seen in “Where the Wild Things Are,” or something out of a Tim Burton film. Most of his scenes depict a blunt coexistence of these frightening monsters with every day people, creating a playful atmosphere that often causes a smile more than a scare.
