Here’s my interview with Michael Cho.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Michael Cho immigrated to Canada at the tender age of 6. There, he continued his lifelong practice of drawing on whatever surface he could find. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art (before it added the ‘and Design’ part), Michael now divides his time between freelancing on illustration assignments and drawing comics (preferably ones he writes himself). He’s been the recipient of a couple of Canadian National Magazine Award nominations, finally winning a Silver in 2007.
I met up with Michael at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival and during our chat he provides his thoughts on the event.
Michael talked about his influences and current inspirations.
We talked about his philosophy behind his artwork and we dug into his recent variant cover for Action Comics #1000.
Michael offered his thoughts on potential future projects including the new Vertigo line of books and his fondness for sports illustrations.
We even bonded over our favourite basketball team — the Boston Celtics. That was cool!
