Colorist Matt Wilson guests on this week’s episode of Off Panel, as he joins David to talk the art of coloring comics. The pair talks the role of a colorist in a comic, how he works, what drives his choices, how he collaborates with his partners, what he does while he works, the increased visibility of colorists in today’s industry, how his experience differs from project to project, the role of colorists as a tastemaker, the power of flatters, and much more.
You can find Matt on Twitter and his work in Paper Girls, The Mighty Thor, Phonogram and more.
