What is style? What does it mean for comics? How does an artist choose a style and develop it, and what do they do when time has come to change it?
In the first part of the episode, Ewa of Bits Fair interviews Braden Hallett, creator of the sci-fi webcomic Cato’s Apprenticeship, about adapting his short story to comic format, using webcomics to experiment and practice art, and how he arrives at his unique style.
Then, Mathieu Moyen of 6-Commando leads a roundtable discussion with Christina Major (Sombulus), Robin Childs (LeyLines) and Ally Rom Colthoff (Chirault) about their own style experimentation, how readers react to stylistic changes mid-comic, and their own stories as they learn, accept critique, experiment with new tools, and push forward.
