DRAW! Interview

As you can gather from Alan's last post, we're all detoxing from the biggest nerdfest of the year. It was glorious and bigger than we could have imagined. We met some great people and picked up awesome schwag so I'm sure we will all have our individual reports coming soon (once we wake up). In the meantime, I had to share some very cool news:


DRAW! Magazine (see my original post here), helmed by the prolific Mike Manley, just released Issue #11 that features an article with yours truly. How the heck did that happen? I'm still asking myself that question. All I know is I met Mike at the 2004 con, we had a great conversation, and now one year later I'm in a magazine next to the legendary Steve Rude. The article turned out longer than I was expecting and Mike included a lot of my artwork. Definitely a hilite to my career and something I won't forget. Buy your issue today and let me know what you think!

I just picked it up to read your article, very interesting read.

You said you like to see model sheets, etc. of "failed" attempts, any chance posting some of yours up on the blog...?

Dang! Thanks for calling me out, Rick... Just because you asked, I'm going to have to find some choice images to scan that didn't make the cut. Shouldn't have to dig that deep...I'm all about failure!

Awesome article! Congrats! I just picked up this issue of Draw! at a comic store in Manhattan of all places! Saw your name on the cover and I coudln't resist... Great to see that Joe Paradise is getting some press again! I too get email regarding the show on a regular basis. Love your new stuff too. Keep it up!

Yo, Sean! Good to hear from you. Manhattan?! Nice!! I thought my name on the cover would cause a dip in sales. Fortunately Steve Rude is there to balance it all out... I'm thankful for all the Joe Paradise fans that are still out there, lurking in the shadows. Maybe we can drum up interest for a DVD or somethin... ;)

Amby! Thanks for stopping by. Congrats on the "name modification"! You better pick up a copy of this issue because I mentioned you on page 36 (but who's counting)!
