For example, when people draw a lion, they draw a really, really frightening lion. For me, when I remember a lion it’s not one that’s frightened me. It’s a big, cuddling one. I try to remember. I start to draw it — I try to find the lion that will give it my expression. And then I add the muscles and the bones and stuff like that. If I have a doubt, I check a book to see what I did wrong.

So, it’s your lion. It’s what you want the lion to be.

What I’m Reading

Those kind folks over at Comic Book Resources' Robot 6 asked me to be the guest of this week’s What Are You Reading. So, I totally did it.

Give it a read to find out what Angouleme finds I tore into first, what comic makes me think the entire industry is drunk, which publisher is not getting the recognition it deserves and just how many times I’ve read and reread and reread again every single issue of Casanova.
