Interview With ‘Three Shadows’ Author, Comics Artist Cyril Pedrosa :: ArtCast #56

IN THIS EPISODE:

I interview one of my heroes Cyril Pedrosa author of my favorite graphic novel ‘Three Shadows’ and the beautiful new web comic ‘Portugal’.

Cyril shares about his early days at the Disney studio in Paris and his break from animation to pursue his true calling as a comics artist.

He shares insights into his own process, his thoughts on what it means to be an artist and the development of his multiple drawing styles through experimentation and emotional connection with the story.

Plus music by Gaby Moreno!

Man, Chris…I need to stop listening to your podcasts….PaperWings especially. I’m starting to want to make a webcomic… But seriously, this was a great interview. Thanks so much for sharing. I love how his animation background tied in so neatly. See you around.

Chris, this interview is a little jewel. I love Pedrosa’s work. I actually have all his comic books (and an original page from Les Coeurs Solitares :) ). I met him in Angoulême last year, at the comic con, and he’s just as kind as talented.
Hope Portugal gets published in English one day, because this guy’s writing is as natural as his drawings. Thanks a lot for interviewing him.

Great interview! I love his inner honesty about his work and his pursuit of his desire to make comics vs. animation. When can we hear some more podcasts!
