Tom Racine is one of those really lucky guys that you just can’t help but have a tinge of jealousy toward. As podcast host, he has had the pleasure of interviewing many of the greatest cartoonists working today, from Jeff Keane (Family Circus), Tom Richmond (Mad Magazine), Jef Mallet (Fraz), Dave Kellet (Sheldon), and Patrick McDonnell (Mutts) to name just a few.
So when I got a little email in my inbox from Tom saying that he wanted to have me on his show, Tall Tale Radio, as a guest, naturally I was a little surprised at the invitation. When He said he wanted to record the interview on April 1st, I was sure it was a prank. But it was no prank! Tom had me on to discuss Robot Beach, and to take the opportunity look at the cartooning world through the eyes of someone who is brand-new to all of this. Hopefully I was able to provide some insight on the subject.
The interview has kinda forced me to reflect on the state of Robot Beach over the last week or so, and I want to take a moment to thank everyone who reads my strip. I am just a few months away from my one year anniversary and I am sure that I would not have made it this far had it not been for all of the support I have gotten from everyone in the form of comments and personal emails. I have made a lot of really great friends because of Robot Beach and those relationships just push me to constantly do better. Robot Beach originally started as a simple three year project. A simple story with a finite end. However, I have been having so much fun lately that I have recently decided to drop the original plan and continue drawing the strip for the foreseeable future. So, as long as you keep coming back, you can find new Robot Beach strips here for many years to come!
So go check out my Interview with Tall Tale Radio and please forgive my nervous incoherent ramblings. Thanks again for the wonderful opportunity Tom!
