Artist Proof: Episode 10 - Marc Deering

After a lengthy hiatus due to health matters, Adrian returns to the mic in a conversation with comic book inker Marc Deering. Deering is an industry veteran with a career spanning over a decade in the business. He's brought his superb touch to titles such as Superman, GI Joe, Miranda Mercury, Justice League and Supergirl and worked with Marvel, DC Comics, IDW, and Archaia to name a few.

Marc and I discuss 'breaking in' to comics as an inker, tools of the craft, the mental aspect of inking and using digital tools in your inking workflow.

Also, as a new ongoing addition, we are including Show Notes starting with this episode here on the site. These notes will be time-marked according to their appearance in the conversation so feel free to take a look before or while you listen to see examples of what is being discussed. Scroll down and take a look!

Artist Proof: Episode 9 - Jon Bogdanove

On this episode, Adrian speaks with one of his favorite comic book artists Jon Bogdanove. Bogdanove is most known for delivering his dynamic and powerful art with an 80-plus issue run on DC Comics' Superman: Man Of Steel title. With writer Louise Simonson, he also co-created the character Steel during the Death & Return of Superman saga in the early 1990s. 

Jon expounds upon his earliest influences such as the classic Adventures of Superman television series and the work of legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby. He also gives a behind-the-scenes peek into how the Death & Return of Superman storyline was orchestrated and the inspirations for the character Steel. Lastly, Bogdanove discusses being a ’style chameleon’, his outreach in teaching art to middle-schoolers and his creator-owned comic Strongman.
