Adam and Patrick don’t let no stinkin’ ocean get in the way when it comes to the comic creation process. That’s why there was no hesitation when it came to scheduling an interview with Palle Schmidt, an artist, storyteller, and educator, from Denmark. Tjek det ud! That’s “check it out” in Danish, in case you didn’t feel like Googling it. You’re welcome.
I have to admit, I’d been looking forward to this interview for a little while. Not only am I a fan of what Palle is doing with his site but I was very curious what the comic scene was like in Copenhagen. You see, the extent of my traveling is limited to the U.S. so I don’t get to travel internationally. When I get an opportunity to talk to someone living in another country, whether it’s about comics or the weather, count me in.
Talking to Palle was no let down. Learning about his process and his take on comic creation was well worth the wait. The topics ranged from the lack of comics in Copenhagen to scripting to using frustration as a learning tool for finding your own successful comic creation process. Enjoy!
