In Conversation With Shawn Richison

Here’s my chat with Shawn Richison. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts. And it’s available on YouTube now as well.

Shawn is a comicbook penciler, inker, letterer, colourist, concept artist, graphic designer, illustrator, and storyboard artist. He’s been at it for over 30 years, beginning his professional career 15 years ago. Shawn’s first professionally published work, the graphic novel Drive, proved to be an incredible learning experience and Shawn has continued to grow as an artist with every subsequent project. Shawn is continuing to pursue logo design and other illustration work. He loves to experiment with subject matter, form and style and is an avid collaborator. His most recent works include cartoonist on A Trip To Rundberg, Against The Wall and most recently FISK: the S.U.B.S.T.I.T.U.T.E..

During our conversation Shawn chatted about The Hardways written by Russell Lissau. The Hardways tells the story about a kidnapping at a Las Vegas casino that goes wrong – not just for the high-rolling victim but also his abductors.
