Meet the Writer – Roger Colby

colbyWhen did you start writing?

I have been writing since I was 15 ,which makes a solid 32 years I’ve been writing short stories and novels.

What are your favorite things to write?

I love science fiction mainly because it is a way to comment on social injustice or soap box issues without blatantly confronting them. And I love creating strange worlds and living in them for a period of time.

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

I am inspired by authors such as Robert Heinlein, Robert E. Howard, Philip K. Dick, J.R.R. Tolkien and others. I love these authors because they chose to go beyond their bounds as writers, told gripping, thought-provoking stories and were models for writers like me. The world around me, by science, and by folk tales also inspire me.

Any projects you’re working on or looking forward to working on?

Currently I’m working on a screenplay and epistemological novel about a cub reporter for a dying newspaper who uncovers a plot by an immortal who has sold our planet out to a Lovecraftian horror in order to gain the genetic marker that will allow him to die.

Meet the Artist – Richard DePew

DePew SelfPortraitHow long have you been drawing?

I wanted to draw as a youngster, but my daddy handed me a shovel and told me, “Work it off—the thought will fade.” I made drawings when I worked in tunnels, I drew on the oil rigs, I sketched on the pipeline, I scribbled working in the sign business—now retired, I am a confirmed doodler.

What’s one of your favorite drawing memories?

While I was a welder’s helper, I drew ladies on the extra wood lagging that adjusted the height of the pipeline. The foreman stopped by to say he had a bone to pick with me, “You have got to stop drawing those pictures on my wood. These welders are taking them home.”

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

Norman Rockwell—superb draftsmanship, N.C. Wyeth—a sense of adventure, William Turner—turning a loose watercolor into a thing of beauty, Maxfield Parrish—pristine beauty and J.C. Leyendecker—distilled and stylized the human condition

Any projects you’re working on or looking forward to working on?

I am learning to sculpt with Zbrush.
