The art grabbed me. I don't think I really thought about who was drawing these stories, but I know I started making my own stapled pamphlets almost immediately.
CR: Contrapposto and how it enlivens a stiff figure.
My influences amongst cartoonists are Neal Adams, John Buscema, Stan Drake, Bill Sienkiewicz, Alex Raymond, Hal Foster, Al Williamson, Mark Schultz, Adam Hughes, Alex Ross, etc. etc.
What work do you do outside of comics?
I do illustrations for educational books (Encyclopaedia Britannica, Choose Your Own Adventure),storyboards for advertising, and illustration for card/role-playing games.
How long does it take you to do the art for a 22 page issue?
I can do full art from pencils to full color in a month and a half.
I start my work around 8 or 9 a.m. Break for lunch around noon , work until 6 or 7 and then get back to the drawing board from 7 or 8 until midnight (unless I have plans otherwise).
What was your all-time favorite project to work on?
The next job that presents me with the opportunity to do finished illustrations. Storyboards can be fun, but the deadline is so tight, one rarely gets the chance to do something really satisfying.
