Maybe I'll start it later!

Also In the Flesh….if you like zombie stuff but it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It’s different than the approach of walking dead. It’s like..post zombie outbreak where the zombies are treated with medication and are being assimilated back into society.

Are you thinking about going to RI Comic Con?

I am. My friend Mara is going for sure. It depends really on wether or not my schedule (and wallet) allow it. Are you going?

What inspired Benny and Fritz?
Anonymous

Before I was in the Cartooning department, before I was in the Animation department, I was in the Fine Art department. And while I mostly enjoyed the classes, I felt somewhat out of place and unfulfilled. I wanted to try out making a webcomic to keep me busy and happy. 

The idea was to combine everything that I enjoy visually with the type of story I enjoy. I knew it had to have skeletons, be set in the early 20th century, and be about friends on a journey. I watch a lot of old black and white films- Frankenstein had a pretty serious influence on Benny and Fritz, as well as the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

There’s this really great modern ww1 horror film called Deathwatch (2002) that has a serious mist/fog element and that was really inspiring. Grim Fandango was a massive art influence. I love Double Fine and I just loved the way the skeleton characters were designed. 

I could get into why I picked ww1 but that might be a longer post. 

I guess that caps it really. In terms of the story I think I just needed something about accepting that you’re a shitty person and you’ve done shitty things but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a better place. And then I got Kae on board and her influence made Benny and Fritz everything that I wanted it to be but didn’t know how to make it. 

I hope that offered something hah. Thanks anon!

i was wondering if you attend or sell at any cons besides bcc? :-0

Yes! This past year I attended Heroes Con (which I plan on going back to), ConnetiConn (somewhat of a home show), and of course Boston Comic Con. I might be going to Rhode Island Comic Con this November (if I can swing it). I’ll be attending SPX in September and NYCC this October. I’ll usually go to conventions in the East Coast.
