Dylan, Great interview.

Funny you mention your interest in comics. I had an identicle experience with comic books being the catalyst to my interest in art. If it wasnt for a friend showing me my first McFarlane spidey back in the early 90s, the last 10 years would have went completely different.

looking forward to the book.

Hey dylan,

I just got through reading your interview also. It makes me feel alittle better about the profession of a matte painter. I really enjoyed this quote“I would advise potential matte painters to learn traditional drawing and painting skills -- especially basic perspective. There are far too many photo monkeys out there who can only collage photos together. They may integrate them well and balance them all together, but the perspective is all off, and the composition is wrong.” I know this wasn't to offend anyone, but personally it feels like my time at school and learning all these things, in the end are worth while. Thanks Dylan it put alot of perspective back into the ol' noggin.
