Interview: Comics Artist, Ed Piskor



Comics artists are obsessive creatures. When one of these beasts latch onto an idea, they'll hang onto it like a street-fighting pit bull. They'll spend countless hours locked up alone in a room sketching, drawing, inking, tweaking and tinkering like a feral varmint. Take Ed Piskor for example. His Hip Hop Family Tree, as featured on the popular BoingBoing website, promises to be an epic illustrated history of the Hip Hop genre. This is a project that, by Piskor's own estimation, could take him ten years to finish! More recently Ed's semi-true story of quasi-fictional phone phreaker and early computer hacker, Kevin "Boingthump" Phenicle was published by Top Shelf Productions to rounds of enthusiastic accolades. Even more recently, Reglar Wiglar Magazine asked Mr. Piskor some questions about some stuff. Read the interview.
