Moscow-based artist George Mager has such a familiar style that it feels like you’ve stumbled upon it before in an old Japanese manga or maybe in a vintage children’s book of fairy tales you picked up from a dusty corner of the thrift shop. But all the while, his art is instantly recognizable as his own, with soft, bouncy lines that outline friendly, lumpy characters that look like they’re made of putty. The freelance artist has applied his playful style to comic adaptations of cartoon series like Uncle Grandpa, Gumball, and Over the Garden Wall, and he has also worked on character explorations for Netflix’s upcoming animated series Centaurworld.
