Cleaning out the drawing studio in preparation for book tour, I excavated copies of thank you cards drawn for four cartoonists who endorsed
the first edition of GOOD-BYE, CHUNKY RICE way back in 1999. Can you identify those authors and/or scenes mashed up from their own work?
Craig, to seguindo seu blog a pouco tempo, comecei logo depois que li “Retalho”, queria dizer que achei essa uma boa historia, cheguei a me emocionar, e se um dia eu tiver condições quero ler seus outros livros parabens!
This might seem a tiny bit strange, but I’m going to ask anyway:
Do you go/ have you gone to an art school? If so, which one? What did you major (+minor?) in? Is/was it worth it? Would you say that going to art school was a major part of your development as an artist?
I’m asking as a young person with a strong desire to draw magnificent stories. My skills, however, fall short of what is needed to put them on paper. I feel as though a structured and supervised approach to my learning and practice (read: a teacherly kick in the ass) might help me to close the gap faster and more efficiently than I can on my own. I was hoping to get a bunch of second opinions, however, seeing as most accredited art schools are incredibly expensive.
I realize it is odd and maybe even intrusive for a complete stranger like me to be asking you for advice, so I understand if you want to ignore this.
