What was the first comic you bought?
GI Joe #55, The "Unmaskings" issue was the first comic I ever got from my parents, but the first comic I ever bought with my own money was Ghost Rider 20, drawn by Mark Texeira. It was hard to find comics when I was a kid because I grew up in Hong Kong in the 80s and early 90s.
Favourite character to draw?
Biggest artistic influences?
It changes all the time but when it comes to covers, painters like Bill Sienkiewicz and Simon Bisley are up there for sure. For interiors, no one beats Frank Quitely.
Favourite convention snack?
Candy. Just all the candy.
