|Doctor Magnifico is a comic about a frustrated artist with a loose grip on reality. When his cats aren’t giving him questionable advice on his love life and career, he escapes into fantasy, fueled by the comics he draws.
|Unlike Moon Town and Croaker’s Gorge before it, this comic is directly inspired by my life. In particular, there are two cats in my house. One is a friendly, happy, big, furry dog of a cat named Samurai Jack. He’s just happy to know you. Happy to be here. The other is a small, scrawny, skittish little cat named Jilly Mack. She’s not happy to know you, and she’s not happy to be here. She spends most of her time hiding from us.
|Steve Ogden has been a writer and illustrator since he could hold a pencil. He’s worked in the video game industry (Cyan, Firaxis Games). He lives in northern Maryland’s horse country with his wife and three children. And he likes to run.
|Dr. Magnifico has a very distinct style. Honed over years of experience? Or carefully crafted in a sketchbook for this project?
|Is Dr. Magnifico drawn traditionally on paper? Or digitally?
|What’s your basic process from script to published comic?
|I love that we get to see comic work through Max’s imagination and you get to stretch your art legs with some inspiring art. How did this come about?
|Can you name some of your artistic inspirations? (Don’t have to be comics)
|The main character is clearly based on the artist who is drawing him, but how deep does the similarity go?
|Most comics will have one human, one animal. What made you pick two cats; good cop, bad cop?
|Ugly comic quota! (May 22, 2014) — Yes! So true. So frustrating. What say you to those who feel your pain?
|What do you find the most frustrating thing is about comics? (Specifically webcomics.)
|You display a deep concern for your fellow artists. What would you say is the most important advice for those who are just starting?
|How do you get the majority of your client work?
|You have an excellent comic about not working for free, could you elaborate on this philosophy?
|Just a note: I hate horoscopes. A lot. I really like your comic from November 11, with the same name. So true!
