Kyle Miller – Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio

Welcome back to another installment of Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio!

This week’s cartoonist is Kyle Miller of Working Daze!

Here goes…

1) If you were to cast a movie entirely with cartoon characters, what movie would it be and who would star in it?

I know it’s blasphemous, but when I was in school, I had a friend who thought it would be the funniest thing to do a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar with Muppets. Kind of tells you the sort of people I hung out with. I know I wouldn’t want to do Star Wars or another such popular film – they’ve been done to death already. Maybe it would be fun to see Spiderman done with the cast of U.S. Acres.

2) You’re a syndicate editor launching a new comic strip. What’s the worst possible title you can think of?

“The art is bad and the jokes are offensive, but we saved a bundle on this title.”

3) A light bulb over a cartoon’s head signifies an idea, while a string of random characters denotes swearing. Invent a new cartooning icon and what it means.

One icon? I want an entire set of hieroglyphics! Some of John’s gags get so verbose that there’s no room for the characters! Just once, it would be great to reduce 3 to 5 lines of text to a single symbol. Then again, better not. Then folks would expect me to pay more attention to the backgrounds.

Thanks a bunch Kyle! Make sure you check out Working Daze, and we’ll see you again next week!
