Who or what is your sidekick? Peoplewise, Dennis Hopeless is my longtime friend and co-creator on a few of the comic books/graphic novels I’ve done. Nonpersonwise, my phone and iPad. I’m hopelessly addicted to mobile technology. I have an EVO 3D (bought before I knew there’d be an iPhone at Sprint) and iPad 2. Both are loaded up with everything I need to draw/write/conduct almost all my business I need to that’s not the actual finished art.
What career would you choose in an alternate reality? Guitarist-songwriter. I’ve been in and out of bands since I was 13. Owning/running a studio would be an option as well.
What was the last local restaurant you patronized? The Westport Café has been a recent good dining experience. Had tuna niçoise for the first time there a week or two ago. Been trying to turn around my opinion on eating fish, so that was a solid nose dive into raw fish.
