COMICS COAST TO COAST interview
I recently was a guest on the fantastic podcast Comics Coast To Coast with Brian, Joel and Matt! I really enjoyed the discussion, and was able to talk about a lot of the good stuff from this past year. I’ve been a huge fan of their podcast for a long time, so it was a real honor to be on the show. Thanks guys! Please check out the INTERVIEW and don’t forget to listen to all the great podcasts on the Frog Pants Network.
I did an interview last week with Darrel and Thomas from the ARTZEN podcast. I really enjoyed it, I hope you’ll give it a listen. We talk a lot about what it takes to succeed in comics, and I talk about my career some. I try and get across some of the hard lessons I’ve had to learn in my career and in the development of my art. Hopefully there’s lots of good info in there for you. Please share if you get something out of it.
Technically, these aren’t from my sketchbook. They’re from my clipboard. I’m finding it easier to do layouts on loose sheets of paper than in a sketchbook. This is also an example of sketching from life and applying it to the super zeroes character designs. For instance, the second sheet, was from my lunch break today. I was noticing how the birds under the truck were total sillhouttes and seemed to be part of the shadow. Also, the way that the girl in the corner of the restaurant sat with her arms and legs all gangly. The frumpy kid with the sloth walk too was something. Most of these are memory sketches. I’ll take pictures in my head and walk away to draw them when I get back to the studio. Its very helpful practice.
The top sheet, by the way are sketches for today’s strip over at www.Superzeroes.net if you would like to catch a glimpse into my process.
