Off Panel #103: Going with the Flow with Benjamin Dewey

On this week’s episode of Off Panel, artist Benjamin Dewey joins the show to talk his art on books like The Autumnlands. Dewey discusses his path to comics, pursuing other passions as an artist, finding yourself in your art, how much an artist’s personality influences their work, comics and community, the convention experience, his art process, the importance of inking to his work, the overstated impact tools have on art, painting himself versus getting colored by someone else, taking on projects outside of The Autumnlands, before closing with five questions about Dewey himself.

You can find Benjamin on Twitter, Instagram, his website, his Etsy store, and his art in comics like The Autumnlands, Tragedy Series, and upcoming work in Rick & Morty and Beasts of Burden.
