Thanks so much to the cool, talented Stan Goldberg for such a fun, informative interview that’s being enjoyed by many! There’s been a lot of great feedback both publicly and privately. :)
If you ever get the opportunity to go to a book or comic/graphic novel event, such as the NY Comic Con and you can go see Stan Goldberg there, that would be such an awesome time! You get to meet him, talk with him, and listen to such cool stories while he’s drawing you a custom picture – that’s priceless! And the scoop from intrepid Papercutz reporter Jesse, is that there are always long lines of Stan’s many fans, anxious to get to hang out with him. And it’s well worth the wait! :cool:
From all of the feedback, I know that you guys are anxious for more of the interview, so here now are the next three questions and answers with cool clues about the man and the artist – Stan Goldberg:
4. I’m really fascinated by the art of comics/graphic novels and learning what it takes to create these cool works of art. What’s the process of how it gets from your ideas and the writer’s ideas to the comic/graphic novel that we see and read and enjoy?
As a very young man, always drawing…I always liked to turn these little drawings into some kind of storyline. I’ve always enjoyed going to the movies. I saw how the director prepared the actors for the camera. Now….I’m the director and now, I create the scenes and prepare my characters for the graphic novel. That’s how I tell my story in picture form from the script I’ve been given.
It’s a very simple procedure.
I’ve drawn comics and graphic novels for many years and I’m still learning how to get it right.
It’s a 7/24 kind of job. It’s the best kind of job and I love doing it.
Ann – Really cool way to explain about the script and scenes and you being the director! You say it’s a very simple procedure, but I think that’s only because you do it so well – so much creativity and artistry goes into telling the story through pictures! I’d say you definitely get it just right!
5. And a question not directly connected with your drawings – except that everyone needs to eat to do the things we love. What’s your favorite food?
Ann – Cool, I love pasta, too!
6. Do you like to snack on a particular food while drawing?
Stan – Working as a freelancer since 1958, I’m still on schedule pretty much every day. I never go to the fridge when I work. In the summer months I drink lots of ice tea, no sugar. No snacking. This I find keeps me fresh and alert when I’m at the drawing board.
BOLO for the next exciting issue in this four part series: Stan Goldberg – The Interview! ~ Ann (a Stan fan :D)
