Mitch Schauer, Mike Vosburg, and Mike Lessa Discuss the Creation of RIP M.D.


The nice people at Lincoln Butterfield have asked me if I would mind sharing this interview with the creators of RIP, M. D. , the Graphic Novel. This fantastic book was one of the most entertaining graphic novels that I read last year, and I highly recommend picking up a copy. It didn’t quite make my list of the greatest OGNs of 2011, but it was damn close. Fans of the Angry Beavers cartoon will love this!

The interview is with Mitch Schauer, the creator of The Angry Beavers, along side inker Mike Vosburg and Colorist Mike Lessa. It’s an interesting interview that discusses the development of the Graphic Novel from pencils, to inks, to colour, and an insight into the reasons why each artist got into the business in the first place.

Comic book veteran Mike Vosburg has brought his innovative, illustrative style to the artwork’s inking, and Michael Lessa and Justin Yamaguchi have created a whole new look for RIP M.D. with their cinematic color and special effects expertise.
