A few short weeks ago issue #2 of Stay Tooned! magazine was released. It’s a terrific magazine chock full of articles and interviews by cartoonists for cartoonists. It covers all sorts of cartooning from comics to animation to panel cartoons to character design to editorial cartoons to….well, you name it. Each issue weighs it at a hefty 88 pages, is printed on sturdy paper, and features interviews with some of the heavy hitters in the industry.
Issue #2 features interviews with:
(cover artist) Joe “Scooby Doo” Staton
Mike “Mother Goose and Grimm” Peters
Bill “Commercial Appeal” Day
Tom “Creating Characters” Bancroft
Mason “B.C.” Mastroianni
Ben “Midnight Sun” Towle
Jules “The Village Voice” Feiffer
Berke “Opus” Breathed
plus articles/columns by R.C. Harvey, Tom Richmond, Norm Feuti, Corey Pandolph and Jack Cassady.
(EDIT: For those of you interested in character design, my buddy Tom Bancroft has an article about that very topic in this issue. Since Tom literally wrote the book on the subject, it should be a good read.)
