Thanks to Soundcloud for hosting Boing Boing's podcasts!
This is episode 4 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 Katie Skelly, a cartoonist who lives and works in New York City. She has been making mini-comics since 2003, and has contributed to several comic anthologies including the Garo-inspired Secret Prison #7 and Thickness #1.
In 2012, Sparkplug Comic Books published her first graphic novel, the Barbarella-esque, psychedelic sci-fi Nurse Nurse.
She is currently serializing her girl-biker gang graphic novel, Operation: Margarine, as silkscreen-covered, limited-edition mini-comics. Number 2 debuts at MoCCA 2013.
Learn more at her website and follow her on Twitter and Tumbler.
TMSIDK 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.

Cartoonists Tom Scioli and Ed Piskor share a studio in Pittsburgh. We visited their studio to talk about what it’s like being professional comic book artists, selling their work, nostalgia, research, color theory, anger management, and “skewmorphism!”
The animation project Giant Sloth, starring Paul Giamatti, could be described as Night at the Museum meets Eraserhead. In this episode, we discuss the making of this animated short with its creator, Paul Hornschemeier.
