The Making of Stumptown: a Matthew Southworth interview conducted by Jason Leivian

Posted by on April 23rd, 2010 at 12:01 AM
I spoke with Seattle artist Matthew Southworth about his first major comics work, Stumptown, a crime story set in writer Greg Rucka's hometown, Portland, Ore. Because the real world-setting is a major selling point of the book, in this interview, Southworth talks about the research and preparation he undertook to make his Portland as authentic as possible. He also shares some advice on how to effectively use photo-reference in comics without making it look too stiff or jarring. Southworth will be attending the Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend (April 24-25). I will also moderate a panel at the Fest with Southworth, where we will further discuss the use of photo-reference and photo- realism in comics.
