One of the things I love about creating in different mediums, styles and genres is how the different art forms feed into each other. For me, comics has a very close relationship with poetry… I might even exert more poetic discipline when drawing a comic compared to a poem. My poems are often expressive wild things, while my comics ask me to chew over a comic and create a potent distillate.
I love how different art forms, and different life experiences, can feed into art and make it richer.
Thanks to all my patrons and a special big extra thanks to Kate Webb, Erik Owomoyela and Sandra M. Odell.
