I did a very open (maybe too open on my end) podcast with Becky Cloonan over at Multiversity last week. We talk about the (so called) diminishing role of artists, the new fans you get as a writer, and our plans to write for other artists. We also talk about our "5 Year Plans" and how we each put more effort into our own stories that we do into other peoples (we think it's about 30%).

The guy that burned his pages was Ryan Ottley. I don't remember exactly what his reasoning for it was but I recall that it seemed perfectly understandable at the time. Great interview either way.

Huh...Ryan is a friend. Doesn't sound like him.

Yup yup, it was Ryan. If I remember correctly, his reasoning was they were pages that he didn't like how they were coming out, so he stopped and started over. He was burning the half drawn pages and I think pages he thought were awful because they were rushed to make the deadline.

Fun interview! Mostly for the fact you and Becky are complete opposites and it was pretty much you two interviewing/BSn with each other after like 15 minutes in.

You may have already just asked him, but here's his journal in regards to goin' all "flame on," on his older work:…

I can respect the impulse, old terrible work can be a little galling to look at, still a little sad to see though. Ryan's one of my favorite guys drawing and I thought his early 'Vince stuff was amazing.
I could be wrong of course, but I could swear he posted about it on Twitter. It was a few years back so maybe we're talking about different people? Ask him. :)

I really enjoyed this, i think you can tell when the artist is the writer it justs works perfectly like Punk Rock Jesus (obviously you have to be able to write). Really want to write my own comics but need the money from paying gigs. I need to buy some more of Becky's books...

That 30% bit made me snicker. Reminded me of how athletes describe their performances as though they were capable of calibrating their bodies like machines to exert a precise percentage of energy and skill. But I guess as an artist you can say you've drawn 30% more details or devoted 30% more amount of time to perfecting your piece.

400.00 bucks a page? Whoa.

Awesome stuff :)

I was kind of surprised and relieved when you said that you kind of get tired of drawing - that in the evening the last thing you want to do is start drawing again. My friends draw all the time, fill sketchbook after sketchbook, upload drawing after drawing to their facebook pages but I myself get tired of drawing sometimes...  Day job as a concept artist + extra freelance gigs on weekends might have something to do with it. So I was relieved to hear that it's okay to be that way. Thanks for sharing!

People like that are amazing, but I think they suffer from some sort of disorder. :)
