Thanks to Soundcloud for hosting Boing Boing's podcasts!
This is episode 3 of Boing Boing's newest podcast, Tell Me Something I Don't Know. It's an interview podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the reality/business side of how they do what they do.
In this episode Jim, Jasen, and Ed interview Eric Skillman, a Brooklyn-based graphic designer at the Criterion Collection. He also does freelance design (Comics Journal 301, The Playwright, Leaping Tall Buildings) and writes crime comics including the anthology Egg, the graphic novel Liar's Kiss, and the webcomic, Suckers. You can see more of his work here and here and follow him on Twitter @EricSkillman.
It's produced and hosted by three talented cartoonists and illustrators:
Jim Rugg, a Pittsburgh-based comic book artist, graphic designer, zinemaker, and writer best known for Afrodisiac, The Plain Janes, and Street Angel.
Jasen Lex is a designer and illustrator from Pittsburgh. He is currently working on a graphic novel called Washington Unbound. All of his art and comics can be found at jasenlex.com.
Ed Piskor is the cartoonist who drew the comic, Wizzywig, and draws the Brain Rot/ Hip Hop Family Tree comic strip at this very site, soon to be collected by Fantagraphics Books.
