Embracing Your Opportunities and Dreams

Last night I had a very vivid dream. A demon had kept this thing in a cage and wouldn’t let it evolve. When I confronted the demon, it retreated, eyes red and scary. Later I would try to fight it, but thanks to something else, I got to see it exorcised. When I looked upContinue reading “Embracing Your Opportunities and Dreams”

Matters of Faith

The hardest thing to do in this life is believe.  This isn’t just about God (although that in itself is a blog post and a half) but faith is in everything you do and don’t do. It takes guts to believe in anything.  The greatest irony in this world is that in order to goContinue reading “Matters of Faith”

Just Joshing Episode 35: Megan Hutchison

Finally catching up with the Just Joshings with Episode 35. Megan Hutchison is probably the coolest artist in comics.   Now, it goes without saying that she is talented.  Her work on Will of the Wisp: Grim Grimeon is nothing short of amazing.  It’s how I met her actually. She was at Calgary Comic conContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 35: Megan Hutchison”

Just Joshing Episode 24: Kasey Pierce

Sometimes, life just surprises you in the best of ways.  It’s how I got the chance to interview Kasey Pierce. Kasey Pierce is one such surprise.  Dirk Manning mentioned her on his facebook exclusive page, and I was intrigued with the concept Kasey brought to the equation.  Since the American dollar makes my meager CanadianContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 24: Kasey Pierce”

Just Joshing Episode 18: Collette Turner

I’m a little behind, but finally I release this blog about Collette Turner. As I said in the podcast, I am surprised I am the first person to do an online interview with Collette, as her talent is quite obvious.   As of this writing, she is currently working on four comic book projects.  IContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 18: Collette Turner”

Talking Shop with Riley Rossmo

Today is the last day of the House Coffee shop as I know it, and I’m sitting here waiting for Riley to show up.  Riley Rossmo is the very talented illustrator of some great books like Proof, Green Wake, Cowboy Ninja Viking (which recently got optioned for a movie), Drumheller and his most recent endeavor,Continue reading “Talking Shop with Riley Rossmo”

Who You Are As An Artist

It’s been a while since I actually did some writing on the site beyond the interviews.  That said, I gotta say I’ve been proud of the last few I’ve done.   They seem like these out of control conversations and I have to say I enjoyed them.  I think at some point I’m going to getContinue reading “Who You Are As An Artist”

Illuminating the Heart with Thea van Diepen

It became apparent after meeting Thea that perhaps she was a touch more talented than I was at her age, or at the very least more disciplined.  Currently attending University, somehow she has found the way to not just write and draw her own comic book series, but also publish her first book, The IlluminatedContinue reading “Illuminating the Heart with Thea van Diepen”

Kickstarting the BMS with Madeleine Holly-Rosing

I was growing a touch tired of steampunk.   It isn’t that I didn’t like the genre (I do!) but I’ve seen so much of that kind of story lately that I was thinking I was needing a break.  Until I read The Boston Metaphysical Society (BMS) by Madeleine Holly-Rosing.  It reminded me of why IContinue reading “Kickstarting the BMS with Madeleine Holly-Rosing”

Catching Up With Martheus Wade

I have never met Martheus Wade in person, but wish to change that soon.  The last time I interviewed him, we were talking about his Toshigawa series, which lead to us talking about fate and free will.  It was an interview I enjoyed and Martheus was someone I wanted to interview again at some pointContinue reading “Catching Up With Martheus Wade”
