INTERVIEW WITH ARTIST JESS SMART SMILEY
From today’s interview with Gavin’s Underground for City Weekly:
“Gavin: What’s the process for you when creating a new comic, from first idea to final product?
Jess: One fun way to start is to put three characters you’ve made together, and start an idea map (or idea web) and jot down little ideas about each character. What they like to eat, what they do all day, their interests and desires, what they hate and where they live. Things like that. Just have fun thinking about it, and see where the ideas go. The important thing is to let the ideas run themselves–don’t impose any story or moral on them, just put them in a room together and listen to them talk.”
You see how verbose I am? Sheesh. Read the full interview here
