51: Drawing Support, with Barry Deutsch

Episode Notes

The world of comics is as vast as it is diverse. From colorful, fanciful stories geared toward children to gritty, realistic artwork crafted for more a mature crowd, if it can be drawn, there's an audience for it. But what motivates an artist to pursue a particular style or genre? To put it another way: What draws them to it? Comic artist Barry Deutsch shares how he became passionate about cartooning, and why he creates comics about communities that are often overlooked and underserved.
