Interview with Mike Cope at the GPL Comic Book Day

Here’s my chat with Mike Cope at the recent Grimsby Public Library Comic Book Day sponsored by Meridian Credit Union.


Mike is a freelance cartoon artist and teaches animation workshops for children.

During our chat, Mike talked about his cartoon work, the purpose of his workshops, his artistic influences, the state of the newspaper comic strips and the advent of webcomics, and what should be the true focus for artists.
