No, not at all, I'm not trying to hide the FML word, as if I was embarassed or something, it's just that I almost choked and Drew saved me by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. And by mouth-to-mouth I mean interview. And by "interview" I mean what's up next. And by "what's up next" I mean this. And by "this" I mean lol. And by "lol" I mean this must be so annoying to read. And by "this must be so annoying to read" I mean okay let's do this interview :
-Hello savior/artist/pretty eyes, present yourself to our dear readers!
-Hi, I'm Drew Springer.
-How old are you?
-Where do you live?
-What is your incredible journey?
- I don't really have a "story". My life isn't terribly interesting. I've been drawing since I was little and never quite gave it up.
-What is your job?
-I'm self-employed in the oil industry for now. Hoping to eventually make a living in comics.
-Tell us more about your webcomic...
-Small Change is pretty much whatever I want it to be at any given moment. It's usually humorous, but I don't work with a set cast of characters or overarching plot or anything. I like to use it to play around with the concept of humor itself.
-What are your inspirations?
- David Bowie, KC Green, Meredith Gran, Ted McKeever, Jason (the Norwegian cartoonist, not the movie serial killer), Ryan Pequin, Ghost World...the list could probably go on for some time.
-What are your favorite webcomics?
- Gunshow, Achewood, Octopus Pie, Three Word Phrase, Nuclear Delight, Johnny Wander, Scary Go Round, Something Positive, Dr. McNinja, Penny Arcade, PvP, Rob and Elliot...the list could most certainly go on. But all of those are pretty great, I think.
-Can you share your next projects with us?
-I'm working on a graphic novella, but it's coming along pretty slowly. Not sure what I'll do with it when I finally finish it.
-And last but not least, why did you choose this story?
-A lot of the choices didn't lend themselves too well to comic strip format, but of the ones I felt did, this one was probably closest to my sense of humor, I guess.
You guessed it right. And by "guessed it right" I mean you nailed it. And by "nailed it" I mean thank you Drew !
