what projects are you currently working on?
Tell us about your work on “Patty & The Stump.” (This is what reminded me we had not had Len on the show in a while.)
I guess we can talk about my new comic project “HeelCut”. Autobiographical and personal in the vein of John Backderf and Harvey Pekar.
You are creating HeelCut in front of a SnapChat audience. Obviously this is generates buzz for the comic. Do you ever find that it impedes your creation process? Or does it energize it? Tell us about the process of creation in front of an audience.
I am one of those guys that “doesn’t get” Snap Chat. What is it from a creator standpoint that you like about it?
Drawing live is nothing new for you. You draw live during DTNS (daily tech news show.) How does that work?
Past Project still going – How is Geek A Week going? How long have you been doing that? How about Monsters By Mail. How do you keep that stuff fresh?
Talk about your Creature Geek podcast with Frank Ippolito
What is your Dream Project that you haven’t quite been able to get to yet?
Have you had to adjust as a Freelancer in the past few years? In other words how is the economy treating Freelancers?
Between Munchkin and (soon to be?) Geek A Week you have a lot of work out there on card games. What are some of the challenges on working on card games like Munckin?
Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate… Leads to sufferring… And grumpy old cartoonists. 😉
