Artist Proof: Episode 11 - Eric Scott Pfeiffer

This episode, Adrian speaks with illustrator Eric Scott Pfeiffer. Pfeiffer is a multi-faceted artist with inroads to comic books, editorial illustration and concept design. Eric's first comic book series with writer Alex Paknadel, 'Arcadia' was recently collected into a trade paperback by BOOM Studios.   

Eric discusses 'Arcadia', his upbringing in a creative household, attending Virginia Commonwealth University's renowned Communication Arts program and becoming one of the distinguished alumni currently making waves in the art world. There's some real talk about his brief experience with almost getting a Hollywood storyboard job and the inspiration thereof that made Eric seek a another avenue for his work. All that plus Eric details his work process on his upcoming comic book series 'The Forevers' with writer Curt Pires.
