Off Panel #41: The True True with Sina Grace

Sina Grace, the hyphenate cartoonist behind the art of The Li’l Depressed Boy, the graphic novel Self-Obsessed and the star/writer behind a webseries based off that GN (which started yesterday!), joins the show this week to talk what’s going on with him. They talk the webseries, how it came together, what the inspiration was for it, whether or not he got to diva up for it, the music of the series (and the lack of Jenny Lewis), how it was adapting his own book into a different medium, his growth as a cartoonist, what his experience as the editorial director of Skybound taught him, where he plans on taking his comics next, and much more.

You can find Sina on the web, on Twitter, on Tumblr, the trailer for his new Self-Obsessed webseries, and the first episode of that same series.
