Thanks! lcook@mcad.edu I’ve always wanted to be an artist. I literally can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be one, and even in my earliest memories I was working towards that goal. What has changed, on the other hand, is what kind of artist I wanted to be. For the first part of my life, I wanted to be an illustrator. That all changed when I read Bone, a comic by Jeff Smith in the sixth grade. I had read comics before then, but this particular comic changed the way I looked at the art form. After I read Bone, my entire life revolved around becoming a comic’s artist and writer. In my own comics and art, I prefer to have strong, bold brush strokes and line work. I also end up having quite a bit of texture and hatching, due to my use of nib pens. Besides using Nib pens, I also use sable brushes for character art and technical pens for lettering and straight lines. I also prefer expansive and detailed backgrounds and establishing shots within my work. Of course, in dialogue sequences you have to focus on the characters, so a lot of my art has been focused on human anatomy and cartooning rather than backgrounds. As a result, I hate most of my backgrounds, despite the fact that I try to put in as many as possible. Of course, there’s a lot more to comics than just the art, it’s also about the story. In my own personal projects, I prefer a hero’s story arc rather than any other. Mostly because I enjoy reading those stories the most. The only kind of story I prefer more than a hero’s tale is a good comedy, but unfortunately I’m not talented enough of a writer to pull a comedy off well. I try to work with themes of good vs. evil, changing as a person, and dealing with loss. Mostly though, I just really like to draw. If it wasn’t for that single desire, I wouldn’t be an artist or story teller at all.
