2007-06-18 11:21:20 misterpace Bio Jordan Crane (born 8 September 1973), is an American comics creator, and is noted for well observed narratives that focus on the vulnerability and mystery of the human experience. Crane's immaculate sense of design, powerful cartooning, striking posters and objets d’art have had a profound effect on alternative comics and the way comics are perceived as an art form. Infusing a punk rock D.I.Y. aesthetic with a clear understanding of craft, Crane’s work feels both like humble, handcrafted objects made in the garage of a lonely teenager, and amazingly planned and sophisticated works of an artist at the height of his form. Winner of numerous awards and prizes in both design and comic industries, Crane first emerged in 1996 with the anthology NON, which he edited, contributed to, and published. This anthology took the best of what made Art Spiegelman’s RAW a classic and combined it with a clear sense of where the future of comics lay. After two more issues of NON, he moved to Massachusetts, and began collaborating with the now dufunct comics publisher Highwater Books. His first novel, the Last Lonely Saturday, a simple but powerful tale of love and loss, demonstrated that Crane was an artist who had come into his own. He followed that with Col-Dee, a work that expanded on the emotional ideas in his first novel. Following two eventful days in the life of a seven year old, the work masterfully wrestles with a child’s understanding of life’s mysteries and the reality that is forever imposing itself. Crane's most recent book, The Clouds Above, is a fast paced children's story that follows the adventures of a boy named Simon and his large cat named Jack. They battle angry clouds, peevish birds and elude the grasp of an overbearing teacher, with the effect resonating somewhere between Where the Wild Things Are and The Wizard of Oz. Crane is currently working on a quarterly comic book called Uptight where he will present new short stories and serialize his sprawling, epic meditation on family, death, and the imagination called Keeping Two.
