DPH Interview with Creator Fabrice Sapolsky


DPH asked Fabrice Sapolsky to answer questions about what triggered his passion and persistence to become the talented artist and creator he is today.

1. Where did you go to art school?

I didn’t! I have a liberal arts background. I majored in Contemporary History. I started drawing at a early age but when I hit 17 years old, I totally lost confidence and turned to writing. Then Graphic design. Then art came back with a vengeance and I started drawing again about two and a half years ago.

2. What got you interested in art?

Comics! What else? What’s funny is that I was born and raise in France where art is everywhere and very accessible. But I only had eyes for American comics.

DPH asked Dan Nokes to answer questions about what triggered his passion and persistence to become the talented artist he is today.

1. Where did you go to art school?

I’m for the most part self-taught. I took some art classes in community college and high school, but found I learn best through trial and error. I need to beat myself over the head with a mallet to learn, so to say.

2. What got you interested in art?

I’m a storyteller first and foremost and I use art to bring my characters and stories to life. It’s what gravitated me into comic books and sequential storytelling. It seemed logical to move my art into that field and direction.

DPH Interview with Anna Giovannini

DPH asked Anna Giovannini to answer questions about what triggered her passion and persistence to become the talented artist she is today.

1. Where did you go to art school?

I majored in Visual Arts and History of Art and Architecture in Brown University, Rhode Island, mostly for general fine art training. After graduation, I took specialized courses in Animation and Comics at the Quanta School of Art (in São Paulo, Brazil) and at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City for a few months.

2. What got you interested in art?

I started watching cartoons and 90’s Anime when I was little, and loved to try and re-draw the characters and produce something. I felt happy when I was able to create something of my own, even if the art itself still had a long way to go, and what pushed me to pursue making comics further was during my first New York ComicCon, when I first saw an Artist Alley.
