What's almost good as being asked to draw on the walls of immortal bookshop, Shakespeare & Company? Maybe being interviewed about it by immortal arts mag, Bomb.
I was flattered to be questioned by the human embodiment of the digital arm of the 28-year-old publication that artist Betsy Sussler founded asking, "Wouldn't it be great if we started a magazine where we talked about the artwork the way we talk about it among ourselves?"
Bomb's Digital Editor, Paul Morris, took some photos and asked me questions such as:
Paul Morris: Your illustrations are an interesting fusion of image and text. How does your experience as an artist inform your appreciation for literature in general, and for literary figures in particular?
PM: What kind of research did you have to do in selecting your subjects? And when you finally had your list of writers sorted out, what was your approach to locating the right archival image of to use as source material?
Paul Morris: BOMB readers are most interested in the creative process: how artists and writers think and talk about their own work is of primary concern to us. What can you tell us about your own process, and your progress, as your style has evolved?
Want to know what I answered?
