Meet the Artist – Kent Clark

SelfPortraitWhen did you start drawing?

It’s clichéd, but I’ve always been drawing. I have a copy of a newspaper clipping of a drawing I did at about 5… I think. Maybe 7. I didn’t become serious about drawing comic books until about 12 when I started reading comics again.

What are your favorite things to draw?

Comic books. I genuinely love the medium. Everything about it. The history of comics, the people of comics, even the smell of the old ones.

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

So many. Outside of the obvious ones like Kirby, Ditko, Kubert, etc., I love Frank Robbins. His use of strong black areas is so powerful. I love Ron Lim’s work because his stuff is so solid and the quality never wavers. Ed McGuinness is amazing. His characters just exude strength and power. My first huge influence was John Byrne. The man has no weaknesses. He can draw anything. I recently discovered some old Ramona Fradon work on Aquaman that I love. Her characters have such great personality.

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

Working on a superhero 8 pager for Mark Davis’ Surprising Comics. Character called Skyscraper.

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.
