DMI Interview - Riley Rossmo

February 16, 2009

DrawMeIn: Have you ever been asked before to draw someone in (other than I)? How do you respond to this? How about when I asked?

Riley Rossmo: You're the first, in an upcoming issue there's another a kind of thank you [Proof #16, a fan tribute issue], I don't mind much its just a bit of a pain to get a likeness, more work to get it just right.

DMI: What are some of the coolest/weirdest things you've snuck into a comic, "Easter eggs" if you will?

Riley: In issue one of Proof, there's a ton of pop cultural ones in the lodge library, same in issue two in Leandre's office, and in issue 13 in the library again, I name stuff in the books after friends andfamily, shirt logos and stuff.

DMI: How are your convention experiences normally? More specifically with the fans? Have any recent stories to tell?

Riley: Usually pretty cool, I like when people have strange requests, I did a Caspar the friendly ghost once, a Robocop on a unicorn, and a crayon piece. Nothing terribly exciting but I'm new so...

DMI: Lastly, how cool is it to work from home and to draw comic books? How much time do you devote in a days work? What time of day do you prefer to work? How easy is it to get distracted?

Riley: I love working at home I watch a movie or two in the morning, draw for 3-4 hrs. Eat lunch go fora run/jog, do some errands if I have to, play some video games maybe, read then after dinner workfor another 3-4 hrs something like that the best part is I set my schedule I want to play Call of Duty all morning I can as long as put the time in somewhere, or read comics all morning, actually I usually start the day with a cup of coffee and 2-3 comics, it gets me thinking sequentially. If your working on a hard section its really easy to get distracted, plus I'll be drawing away and I'll get a call to do an illustration for a magazine that'll totally derail my thought process.

It sure was an interesting interview from which many of the new things are being revealed right now. I am really interested to know more about the people that had been living their life.
