Humour is a peculiar thing that varies from person to person.
What tickles your fancy might not necessarily tickle mine. So, just because you don’t find something amusing, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not funny. This is why people have different tastes in humour. Some people enjoy dark comedy that confronts taboos and turns them into a humorous spin, while others prefer more lighthearted jokes. Regardless of your preference, there is something for everyone in the comic world, and Tony Esp is an artist who understands that. Tony’s comics usually have a dark twist, but he also inserts some silly jokes to keep things light. His range of work ensures that there is something for everyone to laugh about.
When it comes to artistic expression, being edgy just for the sake of being dark is never fun. It can be tempting to add shocking elements to your work to surprise audiences, but if those elements are not contributing to the subject matter, it becomes clear that the artist is not putting much care into their work. Tony, on the other hand, has a completely different approach to his art, and it shows in his body of work. He creates comics that are thought-provoking, humorous, and always have a purpose.
