“MEGA IS LIKE A SPA HOLIDAY – his work is the antithesis of low-key and moody, and the best antonyms to describe him are thus ‘unlow-key’ and ‘unmoody’. Mega draws bold, bright artworks filled with characters coloured so vibrant they hum; hyper-fun hippity-hoppity street scenes; clickity pop-culture soups. And like the best soups, his linework is thick and meaty – you’ll need a fork, not a straw, to chew it up. Like that big beefhead in that one Campbell’s Chunky commercial.”
