008: Jim Rugg
This is episode 8 of Boing Boing’s, Tell Me Something I Don’t Know. It’s an interview podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the reality/business side of how they do what they do.
This week TMSIDK host Jim Rugg is in the hot-seat talking about his new project SUPERMAG — a glossy, full-color magazine-format homage to the graphic design and comics of the 1990s - published by Adhouse Books. It’s a one-man anthology inspired by work like Dan Clowes’ Eightball, Dave Cooper’s Weasel, David Carson’s Raygun, and David Mazzucchelli’s Rubber Blanket.
Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is produced and hosted by three talented cartoonists and illustrators:
Jim Rugg is a Pittsburgh-based comic book artist, graphic designer, zinemaker, and writer best known for Afrodisiac, The Plain Janes, and Street Angel. His latest print project is Supermag (AdHouse Books).
Jasen Lex is a designer and illustrator from Pittsburgh. He is currently working on a graphic novel called Washington Unbound. All of his art and comics can be found at jasenlex.com.
