Off Panel ECCC Special #3: Art Ninja with Wes Craig

The Deadly Class artist talks his craft and process

In this week’s special episode from Emerald City ComiCon, artist Wes Craig joins the show to talk about his art and work on Deadly Class at Image Comics with Rick Remender. He talks about the convention experience, how he and Remender bring the book to life, his process, his personal connection to the story, character acting, the way he brings motion onto the page, the difference between his approach on various projects, how he brings color into his own work, how the schedule impacts his work and much more. It’s a great talk with, in my opinion, the best artist working in comics today.

You can find Wes on Twitter, on Tumblr and his work in Deadly Class at Image Comics.
