That was a great interview.
Turns out we both kind of started out the same way. I had hundreds of comic book characters drawn by the time I was sixteen, but the writing never stopped when the drawing did. Did you find that drawing was more of a stress relief than something you derived pleasure from or prided yourself on? I never really cared about my art like I cared about a well-crafted story.
I pretty much drew just for the fun of it, and to flesh out all the various characters screaming to get out of my head. But, yes, drawing also acted as way to work out various emotions at times. Same for the writing.
If you get a chance, post some of your drawings. I'd love to see'em!
