INTERVIEW – Comic Strip of the Day

Me, Justin Thompson, and the latest issue of the monthly PEANUTS comic book we worked on together.

I distinctly remember being 8 or 9 years old and visiting a family friend, and they pulled out a copy of Asterix the Legionary. It caught the sun as he was pulling it down from the shelf, and it changed my life. I said, “I want to learn how to draw like that.”

Justin: There was a glint?

Lex: There was a glint, yeah.

Justin: Wow.

Brian: Like Excalibur or something.

There’s lots more where that came from in this joint interview I did with cartoonists Justin (Mythtickle) Thompson and Brian (Mom’s Cancer) Fies.  Brian conducted the interview for Comic Strip of the Day and the three of us sat down for a fun discussion about our influences, techniques, and day jobs at the Schulz Studio.
