Episode 147 – In Conversation with Rachael Stott & Jessica Martin!

by Chris Thompson

With Rachael Stott & Jessica Martin …
 
On this episode, I go to the pub with rising star Rachael Stott (Star Trek, Doctor Who) to discuss how she broke in, the art of portfolio reviews, learning on the job, and the path her career has taken in the short time since.
 
Then, as an extra bonus, the second-half of the episode casts a spotlight on writer/artist Jessica Martin (It Girl, Vivacity) as she provides a walkthrough of her Elsie exhibition currently on display in the Orbital Gallery.

Episode 113 – Meeting Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko!

by Chris Thompson

With Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko …
 
Following on from last episode with Leah Moore & John Reppion discussing Electricomics (which you can still listen to here), this week I’m back with the stellar team of Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko (Heathentown, Planet of the Apes, the upcoming Invisible Republic) at the recent Malta Comic Con.
 
Gabriel, Corinna and I discuss how they each started out, when they first met, what prompted them to start working together, and what they’ve got coming up next. It’s a unique glimpse into a rich and creative partnership!

Episode 40 – Telling Stories with Gabriel Hardman!

by Chris Thompson

With Gabriel Hardman …
 
There’s a trifecta of great titles for Taylor & I to look at this week, plus one very special mention. First up, we keep ourselves occupied with Occupy Comics #1 from fledgling publisher Black Mask Studios. Then we take a look Mike Garley & Martin Simmonds’ Eponymous #1, which debuted as part of the recent VS Comics Anthology.
 
From there we turn our attention to the first issue of Gabriel Hardman’s solo effort Kinski from Monkeybrain Comics. Gabriel & I discuss the art of storyboarding, how the collaborative process differs, applying the 180-degree rule, and what themes can be explored in the relationship between a man and his dog. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the life of a creator equally at home behind the drawing board or on the film set.
 
If that’s not enough we also take a quick peek at Michael May & Jason Copland’s Kill All Monsters webcomic which was successfully funded for a print edition on Kickstarter last week. Kaiju monsters and giant mech-suits … What more could you want?
