Rolo Mallada on drawing Pocket God comics and making trees happy.

Having spoken to the brilliant guys at Ape Entertainment about the Pocket God comics, I really wanted to get an artists persepective and so got in touch with the brilliant Rolo Mallada. I think his answers to my questions are some of favourites!

Do you create your artwork digitally or with pen and ink? If both, which do you prefer?
Rolando Mallada:  I make my art with pencils and the inking process with Photoshop. I like both but I prefer draw on paper. 🙂

Do you change your style of layout when making comics for the iPad?
RM: I don’t. I work in the same way unless they request me other sort of layout.

Do you think iPads are the future for comics? And is this good or bad?
RM: Yeah, I think that the comic already is migrating to the digital support. I like the paper but the comics on iPad are very enjoyable too, and the trees happy.

Do you have an iPad or iPhone and do you use it for reading comics on?
RM: I have an iPod not iPad. I don’t use it to read comics, maybe if I have an iPad I would use it for read comics. Do you think one day you will be drawing comics on an iPad? I love paper. I’m sorry trees. 🙂
