Mike Anderson aka Mikuloctopus — Edmond, Oklahoma, USA
“I think a major trap, and one that I still fall into, is the desire to only draw super-heroes. Sequential art is about telling a story and a story involves much more than being able to draw a super-hero. You have to be mindful of backgrounds and props. You have to understand what information the reader needs to get out of each panel, and then how to effectively convey that information.”
