References and Reviews (Art and Comics)

Moritz’s style is profoundly developed, his lines and shapes all chunky and clunky in black but full of life and motion. It makes for an aesthetic that is both achingly familiar and utterly unique.

Jonathan Valelly, Broken Pencil

Valelly, Jonathan. 2021. ‘Bar Delicious’ is a masterful zine series where hybrid style meets hypnotic critique. Broken Pencil. 92 (Summer 2021).

Poetry

Zeppelin. Gibsons Landing: Nightwood Editions. April 2013.

“In Zeppelin, Blaise Moritz subverts subversion, rejects rejection. Like his steampunk muse, he creates a dazzling future for an antique art. He is a celebrant, a builder. His language is current in every sense: fluent, new, and charged with power.”

Paul Vermeersch

Crown and Ribs. Toronto: Fitzhenry and Whiteside Ltd. April 2007.

“This is a large-hearted collection, committed to an ethical singing of the paradox of lives still stitched into economy; and, too often, subordinated to it….Crown and Ribs reminds us how deeply we might yet live our unsold hours.”

– Ken Babstock
