JayFantastico would like to get a community project going- a sketch battle! He's posted some details in the forums so if fightin' and drawin' is your thing (or maybe even if it's not) you should have a look!
We've got another interview today, too! So get your patootie over to the forums and read Kristin Gudsnuk's interview of carolyn, from The Horribles and The People That Melt in the Rain!
8. Are these your first comics? What creative work were you doing prior to these comics?
I used to work for a studio that colored books for Marvel back in the 90's, but these are really my first comics that I've created. Mike has been working in comics for many years and has worked for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, IPW, Image too many credits to name. I have written and illustrated 8 children's books, done work for kid's magazines like Highlights for Children, and Hopscotch, and numerous other places. I spent last year building sets and puppets for a theater group in South America, which was just a blast.
Mike's a professional artist and has been working in all areas of the business, including children's books, role playing games, even album covers (CDs).
