Cartoonist and illustrator Michael Neno is interviewed by Copy This! editor/publisher D. Blake Werts, in the June 2017 edition, hitting mailboxes now. Michael is of course a regular contributor to The Digest Enthusiast, who has been with us since book one thanks to Blake’s good sense.
Here’s Michael’s response when Blake asked how he juggles so many projects:
“Well, creating and publishing is my real job. I quit my thankless and dead-end IT day job seven years ago (I wasn’t getting any younger!) to live off my creative talents. That includes everything from freelance comics lettering, coloring, penciling, inking and pre-press formatting to mural and web design, logos, mascots, t-shirts and illustrations for books and magazines. I juggle these deadlines with my own projects . . . I’m also commissioned to write weekly film reviews for a site which will be soon going live.”
There’s often a bonus that comes with an issue of Copy This!, this time it’s an 8-page mini comic by Michael called Pictures of Benevolence.
Copy This! is a wonderful ‘zine featuring interviews with long-time indie cartoonists and news from the mini comics community. To inquire about single issues or subscriptions write to D. Blake Werts.
