Artist Mathew New, author of "Billy Johnson and His Duck are Explorers", talks about the path they took to turn their self-published series into a traditionally published book.
Comic artist Mathew New is the author and illustrator of Billy Johnson and his Duck are Explorers, a middle grade graphic novel about the Indiana Jones-inspired adventures of a human and his best friend, a talking duck. During this lecture, New will take you through the process of creating a finished comic, from pencil sketch to inks and color. New will also touch on what it takes to publish a comic, having both self-published their own single issues and worked with a traditional publisher to create Billy Johnson.
