Meet the Writer – Stephen McMurtrey

mcmurtreyWhen did you start writing?

A couple of years ago, a story popped in my head about a kid who wanted to prove that gravity did not apply to him. From there, I have been writing stories all the time.

What are your favorite things to write?

I love to write characters that seem to have a life of their own and react to the situations I put them in. It’s almost as if I am more observing the story than writing it.

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

I am a huge fan of authors like JK Rowling, JRR Tolkien and Rick Riordan who make amazing worlds and relatable characters that people care so much about.

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

I am working on the sequel to my short story collection, The Meow Effect, and my young adult novel, with a working title of Jake Fields, a story about a 14-year-old who returns to the same spot he vanished from four years prior.

Meet the Artist – Jessica Garvey

garveyWhen did you start drawing?

I’ve been drawing my whole life. My first comic story was done during free time in Spanish class in first grade, creatively titled “Super Dog.”

What are your favorite things to draw?

I enjoy drawing facial expressions and finding the right ones for each character. They’re extremely useful for storytelling and revealing personality visually. I also love to draw my dog, because I’m obsessed with her.

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

Lucy Knisley’s autobiographical works are some of my absolute favorite comics. I’m also finally reading Hellboy and Mike Mignola is a master, but you don’t need me to tell you that. Yuko Ota, artist of Johnny
Wander
. Jen Bartel is fantastic, too. There are too many to name!

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

I’m planning another autobiographical project as a follow-up to my first graphic novel, “It Did Happen.”
