Nobody cares where anybody went to school. Sorry, just stating facts. Nobody cares what an artist’s wife’s name is, husband’s name is, children’s names are. Seriously. Nobody has any interest.
Nobody cares what the random first comic book that somebody read was. Not interesting. No more of these sorts of questions for interviews of artists and writers.
Unless you’re talking to Jim Woodring, it is impossible to care what sort of pen a cartoonist uses. One guy uses G nib, one uses Hunt, one uses a brush, somebody uses a Bic. The audience is fast asleep. Cartoonists draw with some manner of intermediary tool. We get it. No big deal. I’m glad we don’t know what kind of jogging shoes each cartoon artist wears.
There are so many things to talk to cartoonists about. What brand of india ink they use is a poor use of time and space.
Thanks for listening.
