Join us this week on Comics Coast To Coast as we talk to Matt Forcum of the webcomic Robot Beach
Most people don’t know this about me, but I am not supposed to be an animator. If you were to hop into a time machine and travel back in time to ask my grade school self what my career is going to be one day I will tell you that I am going to be a jet pilot. That, or a cartoonist.
So Why Robots? Why a Beach? Believe it or not, this comic started its life as a simple sketch I created two years ago while I was bored and on a lunch break. I sketched out a little robot and for some reason thought that he might look cute with a surfboard and flower print swim trunks. Something about that little sketch felt fresh and interesting. I knew I was on to something special.
Don’t forget to listen to all the great podcasts on the Frog Pants Network.
