During Ed Piskor's West Coast tour he hit up Meltdown Comics on sassy afternoon for a signing and while he was there, Boing Boing cofounder Mark Frauenfelder sat down to interview the cartoonist of Hip Hop Family Tree. Piskor's comic strip has been serialized on Boing Boing for the past two and half years and this was the first time he had met Mark.
Sit back or sit up and draw to this nice 45 minute interview covering Piskor's backstory, drawing style and the research behind Hip Hop Family Tree. “I consider myself more than a cartoonist but also an archeologist on this project or more like a curator.” –Ed Piskor
Ed's busy plugging away, finishing up the design elements for Volume 3 and continueing to draw strips for Boing Boing aka future volume 4!
