Studio Creator: Anthony Hary

Anthony Hary - Cinematic Illustrator / Storyteller / Editor

Creator, Illustrator, Storyteller, and Entrepreneur, Anthony Hary, sits down with to talk about his career, his creations, and the future of A.N.A Comics!

________ “For many people when they think of A.N.A Comics, they think of you and your involvement in the company, but what about you as a person? What are your interests?”

Anthony: “My interests cycle a lot around storytelling and creating an experience for my audience. That’s in everything from comics to cooking. I love comic books, have since I was 8 or 9 years old. Really I love visual storytelling. Which obviously includes Comic books and Graphic Novels, but also encompasses Film and Television, even Video games. After that my interests widen out greatly towards a wide variety of music, and down to simple moments like just sitting and talking with friends.” “Being one of the founding members of A.N.A Comics, you’d think we’d know by now, but we’ll ask anyways. What are your creative skills?”

Anthony: “I coined the term somewhere in 2009 that what I do is ‘Cinematic Illustration’. Its close enough to reality to know exactly what it is, but stylized enough to be visually appealing as an illustration. My primary weapon is the pencil. I will ink, or color as needed, but my greatest strength is in my penciling. Secondary to that is my skill as a writer/editor. For me there is a benefit to knowing and understanding as much of the industry as I can and through that I also have a grasp on the basics of many other practices.” “You’ve been active in the industry for around 10 years now. During that time what projects have you worked on or created yourself?”

Anthony: “I have contributed to many independent books, along with illustrating private commissions for clients and fans, but was it fun about where I am at with my career today, is that its like a full circle growth from where I started. My first full effort into the world comic books as a creator started with BRETHREN, which was originally a web-comic. I was co-writing, penciling, inking, and lettering BRETHREN when we started out. Now, after years of doing all sorts of other things, its fun to be working on these Creator Owned projects again and one of them is BRETHREN! I am also the artist and co-creator of The Midnight Raider! Along with that I have provided covers for different books, including WE’RE INDY: Rise of the Independents Anthology, HARIJAN TPB, and the first volume of TPANVB, all of which were published through A.N.A Comics.” “After all you have done, do you have any further creative goals you are striving for?”

Anthony: “So far in my career I have accomplished much of what I have set out to do, but I have a lot left on my goals list! First and foremost it’s great to have accomplished what I have, but I have done all that while still working a fulltime day job. A huge goal for me is to shed the day job and move into working on my craft full time. Along with that I have some great projects in the pipeline and I plan to complete those, along with the work I am doing on The Midnight Raider and BRETHREN.”

Rob: “To take part in the creation of a story that inspires and teaches people. Some of the greatest lessons I have learned in life have been through comics, film, and music. I would like to know that I'm a part of something like that and to know that I touched people on that level. I want to create something that when someone walks away from experiencing it they say to themselves "WOW!" Also, I hope to be able to make a living telling those stories. We all need to eat right?”

Studio Creator: Nicholas P. Myers

Nicholas P. Myers

Creator, Artist, Writer and the mastermind behind the 312 page epic graphic novel OASIS: OMNIBUS, sits down to answer a few questions with us:

--------- “Hey Nicholas, you have been with A.N.A Comics from their earliest days in 2009, tell us a bit about yourself. What things do you find that interest you the most?”

Nicholas: “I love finding and reading new Indie print comics and new web-comics. They're very entertaining and also provide some insight into what other creators are thinking and doing. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, some fantasy, and alternate history books, along with everything Stephen King. Right now I'm reading a compilation of mythologies from around the world.” “Describe for us your ‘Creative Skills’.”

Nicholas: “Through my formal training, I have a BFA in Visual Communication/Graphic Design with a minor in illustration. I consider myself an artist/writer. I think they both have to coincide. In order to create an illustration, you have to create the story that illustration exists in. I write and illustrate almost all of my own work. I pencil and ink my own work and have inked other's work as well. I'm working on creating a skill set of coloring as well.” “You mentioned that you write and illustrate most of your own work. What projects have you worked on or created?”

Nicholas: “I've written, illustrated and produced a 312 page graphic novel, OASIS: OMNIBUS. After that I independently released a three issue mini-series, HARIJAN, which was collected into a trade paperback through A.N.A Comics in 2010. Most recently I produced the web-comic, The Precarious Adventures of Newton Von Brisby, through A.N.A Comics, along with releasing a collected print edition of the first year’s worth of stories.” “You have accomplished quite a bit in your career. We get the distinct impression though that you are not finished yet, do you have further creative goals?”

Nicholas: “I would love to have enough exposure so that everyone could get lost in my worlds. I love to create entire worlds around my stories. Ideally I will be able to continue to do that, and retain creative control over my properties. I believe that as an artist and writer I need to continuously work to improve my craft. There is never a time where you can stop and say, "I made it.”

Currently I am working on pencilling and inking an incredibly exciting project for Richard Evans (Legion Unleashed), along with finalizing the details on some planned 2012 projects being released through A.N.A Comics!”
