Featured Creator: Comic book artist Erin Wilson
Share this post
Today's featured creator is Erin Wilson, a New Orleans-based artist, graphic novelist, and unflinchingly honest observer of life. Snowbird will be her account of a winter spent within a tightly knit artist's community in the bayou, unraveling her friendships, hardships, lessons learned, and total joy achieved. True to form, she answered our questions in comic book form. Consider us sincerely charmed!
What inspired you to transform the real life experiences you had in New Orleans into comic form?
Were there any particular experiences that were difficult to turn into comic book panels? What was it like working it out?

What do you hope people will take away from reading your story?
What has it been like running a Kickstarter project? Any notable experiences with backers? Or surprises?
