Products of the Mind Episode 12: Jeromy Cox, Comic Book Professional, Talks Colors & Comedy
Welcome to Episode 12 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with comic book artist and stand-up comedian Jeromy Cox.
“I love artists; but if you don’t realize how crazy artists are and you’re an artist, you’re missing something.”
Today we chat with Jeromy Cox: a comic book artist, comedian, and occasional TV and film actor. We discuss the history of comic book coloring and the transition from traditional book coloring to modern digital coloring. We also gain insight on companies like Image Comics, Wildstorm, and Marvel.
From using dry erase markers on computer screens to developing the current hand-drawn computer animation technology, Jeromy walks us through the difficulties of coloring comics “back in the day.” We, also hear about how he used his artistic talents for video games and theme rides, “hanging out with Ted Turner,” and being nominated for an Eisner Award.
Other Topics: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes; Zombie Love; managing artists; Leave it to Chance; Mage; doing stand-up comedy; being a pirate in a Russell Crowe movie; and acting on America’s Most Wanted.
