“My fear is not merely that the geeks will never come to acknowledge their triumph, as comfortable as they are in their self-professed victimhood. I fear too that we have come to so thoroughly associate fandom with grievance that the two are now inextricable. That, I suspect, is the long-term consequence of the rise of the geeks: that we no longer know how to enjoy art without enjoying it against others. That’s a bitter, juvenile way to approach art, and if it’s the real legacy of the rise of the geeks, it’s an ugly legacy indeed.”
— “Geeks, You Are no Longer Victims. Get Over It.”, Frederick deBoer, The New York Times, 2014. (via aintgotnoladytronblues)

Q

spiral-shark asked:

Bruh, your cityscapes are among the best in the business. I gotta ask, do you use any digital tools when you draw them such as SketchUp, or is it all through sheer willpower and rulers?

A

Hey, thanks!

I’ve answered this question before. Here’s what I said then:

I’ve never gotten into using Sketchup or any other 3-D modeling software. I know that a lot of artists use 3-D models to save time, but I’ve put a lot of effort into learning how to visualize and create this kind of stuff on my own. I’m just faster and more adept at drawing with a pencil and paper than I am at making 3-D models or even searching for the right ready-made model.

Another appeal of 3-D models is the fact that you can get things exactly and consistently right. This is an attractive idea for an illustrator who values realism. But I don’t mind getting things wrong. I actually believe that inaccuracies make an image more interesting.”

I’ll add that more and more I embrace the inaccuracies. I’m becoming less interested in precision. I’m even using a ruler less. There are a lot of places in my Edge of Spider-Verse issue where I’m just going on instinct.

Oh, man! I just realized I’ve got nowhere to hide with this comic. If people don’t like it, it’s all my fault. I can’t blame it on the writer or a colorist or anyone. 
Shit! What have I done? … Oh well. hahaha We’ll see how this goes.
