Matthew Dunn Interview


Matthew Dunn, has fast become one of my Internet Pen Pals. What first started as a mutual discovery of each others work on the internet site Redbubble, soon became a friendship of talking about comics, toys, marketing and art.

Michael Knapp Interview

I don't know how I stumbled upon Michael's work or when I first saw it. What I do know is that is that it looks is that I really love the style and uniqueness to it all. With nice usage of colour and the conception of interesting looking characters, Michael's art is something that I am very fond of.

New Look, New FaceBook Page

Hello every one!

Lloyd here, just posting up a small little post about some of the changes that are going to be coming up in the not so distant future. First, I have created a Facebook Fan page for the blog so that I can share the interviews with more people a lot easier. The link in here: Facebook Page . Please "Like" it to stay in the loop of what is going on and to be notified of when new interviews are posted up.

Also, I am looking into the technology to create Podcasts and MP3 based interviews so that people can enjoy interviews with their ears. I would like to go as far as holding panel discussions with 2 or more artists as well but, like I said, I am looking into this and it maybe some time off yet.

The Blog banner has had a quick little re-design as I was tired of the old one. Whether it will stay for long is up for debate. Thats all for now, hope everyone enjoyed the Francis Tsai interview. I've got some real good ones coming up that I am pretty excited about releasing. Go check the Facebook Page if you haven't already and be sure to check back soon for more interviews.

Thanks!

Lloyd Harvey

Francis Tsai is a freelance illustrator who works in the entertainment industry. He provides conceptual design work for computer games and film and also supplies artwork to be used in books and on cards (to name only but a small amount of what he does, for instance I haven't even mentioned his comic book work yet).

Anita Kunz Interview



Well, to get a good idea of who we are dealing with, you should have a read of Anita's bio on her website. Right, now that you have returned, impressed? Well you should be.

Wayne Barlow Interview


As with all the artists I interview, I find it very hard to write an objective, professional and analytical introduction. So, I must admit that I'm finding it difficult to write anything that isn't just high praise for Wayne and his amazing, incredible, inspirational, inventive, technical, stunning, awe inspiring, original, brilliant, awesome art work.

Tom Kidd Interview


There is a wonderful escapism to Tom Kidd's work. He paints such beautiful worlds of tranquillity and majesty that it makes me wish I could visit and explore them in one of his brilliant looking Zeppelins.

Alex Ruiz Interview




Alex Ruiz started his career as a 2D animator, working on a little known cartoon sitcom called "The Simpsons," and, although being an animator is a highly sought after career, he felt like he wanted to change but wasn't sure of where to go and what to do.

Keith Thompson Interview




When you hear the term 'intelligent design' it is often in the context of religion, being used as a counter argument to Darwin's theory of natural selection. When I hear the
term 'intelligent design', I think of one man's work. Keith Thompson's work.

Paul Kidby Interview



If you are a fan of Discworld, you will surely have seen Paul Kidby’s work on the covers of Terry Pratchett’s novels. Often, a fan will say “that’s exactly how I pictured {insert character name here} in my head.” Bright, interesting and obviously brilliant, Kidby’s work has a classical, renaissance feel. This must be down to his love of the old masters of that time.

Chet Zar Interview


I met Chet Zar in the late summer of 2008 when he was in London promoting his Ugly American show. Me and my girlfriend Claire travelled up to meet him in a small comic shop in Tottenham Court Road where he would be doing portfolio reviews and generally chatting to his fans.

John Howe Interview

When you hear the name John Howe, your first thoughts will probably link him to the world of Tolkien. But, I think that is a shame because John Howe is more than just a Middle Earth Illustrator.
