Perfect Bound Podcast – Episode 270

Kurt Ankeny
Today on the show, the gang welcome author, illustrator, painter, and occasional letterer – Kurt Ankeny! Kurt’s books In Pieces and Pleading with Stars are sometimes autobiographical, occasionally bleak, but always fascinating and beautiful. Aside from his own books, Kurt has also lettered Matt Fraction and Elsa Charretier’s November. Kurt and Cole go way back and Kurt was nice enough to draw the portrait of Cole and Ben for the Panel Jumper **LIVE** Chapter VIII. Join us today as we talk to Kurt about:

• Writing his first book In Pieces
• What he’s learned about self-publishing
• Drawing daily comics for The Comics Journal
• How he feels about conventions
• Drawing portraits in coffee shops
• How writing a comic is like songwriting
• Drawing his comics from start to finish
• How he found himself as a comics letterer
• The lost art of comics lettering
• Leading a hand-lettering workshop
