73: Alec Longstreth – MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast

MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast

Sometimes life seems to point you in the direction it wants you to go. And sometimes it drops you in the middle of nowhere with a good luck pat on the back. Both times should be celebrated as chances to see what happens in the biggest game of Chance ever: life. In this Gutter Talk episode, Adam sits down with artist and educator, Alec Longstreth, to discuss the path that got him to where he is. From living in cities all across the United States to working on the set of Star Wars in Australia, Alec has a thing or two to say about a thing or two, and can even back it up with some amazing art. One of the things we hear frequently is how artists adapt, as well as the various ways artists use the materials around them to create tricks and tools of the trade. In Alec’s case, it’s a MacGyvered tool rack that he has attached to the side of his drawing table. Alec was kind enough to send us a photo so we’ve attached that to this post. If you’re reading this on a mobile device and can’t see the photo, please be sure to check out the post on the site. While you’re listening to this fantastic conversation, please also take a few minutes to head on over to iTunes and give us both a rating and a review. Just search for Gutter Talk and you can’t miss us. Not only would we at Making Comics Worldwide personally appreciate it but future comic creators will appreciate it as well when they find our podcast ranked high enough to garner their attention.

Interviews - Alec Longstreth

The Comics Alternative

On this episode of The Comics Alternative Interviews, Derek and Andy W. talk with Alec Longstreth about his recent book, Basewood, as well as his self-published minicomic series, Phase 7. They ask him about the genesis of his first graphic novel, his experience with serialization, the successful Kickstarter campaign, and efforts to publicize and distribute his beautiful hardbound book. Alec also talks extensively about the music he and fellow musician Andy Hentz created as a soundtrack for the comic, Songs from the Basewood. (In fact, all of the music in this episode comes from that CD.) This began as a stretch goal for the Kickstarter campaign, and it is also made available in issue #20 of Phase 7. But Alec has now made all of the music available on bandcamp.com. And in a first on The Comics Alternative, the Two Guys even play full versions of some of Alec’s songs to give listeners a taste of  how he artist has perfectly melded his two passions, comics art and music.
