"Being in an Ed Piskor comic is cool enough to freeze hot water." – Fab Five Freddy

"This is the comic of all time." – Biz Markie

"This is the comic I’ve been waiting 40 years to read." – Harry Allen (Public Enemy Media Assassin)

"If ever a chapter of modern American history were ripe for the Classics Illustrated comic book treatment, it is hip-hop’s first decade. Ed Piskor, a talented writer and artist who has long savored the connections between comic books and hip-hop, has now written that chapter in the seductive and entertaining form of Hip Hop Family Tree. He weaves dozens and dozens of individual stories into an unprecedented book-length narrative encapsulating the out-sized drive, creativity, humor and violence that defined hip-hop culture from its gestation in New York’s outer boroughs in the early Seventies to its thrilling first steps onto the world stage via records and tv in the early Eighties. … It’s a great great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well.” – Bill Adler, co-author, Def Jam: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label

"They say the story of Jesus is the greatest ever told, but JC didn’t steal a DJ mixer during the New York Blackout of ‘77 or bomb a subway car with Fab 5 Freddy. With his ‘Hip Hop Family Tree,’ comics artist Ed Piskor delves into the history of hip-hop and gets straight-up biblical, penning a ‘who-begat-whom’ with a b-boy twist." – Jonathan Zwickel, MTV.com

Chip Kidd, Chris Ware, and Charles Burns talking comics (Taken with Instagram at Brattle Theatre)
Things of note:
Charles Burns keeps several binders full of found images and collected photos for inspiration. Also cites going on Tumblr for photo references (illustrators…they’re just like us!)
He also has a collection of artsy photography he did from the late 70s
Chris Ware’s favorite inspirational work of art is this Mary Cassatt etching
If Chip Kidd could go back in time to any period he would go back to 1961 and steal all the Batman comics in mint condition so he could have them now
Charles Burns seems to be as obsessed with Tintin as much as Chip Kidd is with Batman
Chris Ware hates public speaking yet continues to participate in panels in front of large audiences
Chip Kidd has a new Batman comic he wrote/art directed and of course there is a villain named Exacto who is an architecture critic
Chris Ware’s new book is crazy
Overall I am really glad that comics and illustration discussion panels like these are starting to happen more frequently. It’s one thing to see an artist do book signings at some festival or convention, but ultimately they’re really just there to sell their books so the whole thing ends up more of a fanboy experience for both parties.
This panel, along with the recent comics discussion at the University of Chicago, felt like Inside The Actors Studio but for illustrators and designers. (Sidenote: which as a concept is actually kinda awesome and I wish was an actual TV show).
Suddenly I’m seeing sketches and thumbnails of their process, what goes through their head when they’re doing this stuff, what inspires them, how they think, how they act, all the things that would get you interested in the artist as a person, and not just their work.
Which is something that doesn’t even really ever happen, unless events like these are coordinated and artists are willing to participate in letting a room full of strangers and fans into their head for a few hours.
So I guess thanks to whoever coordinated this, as well as the other panel in Chicago. For $5.00 I got to witness three brilliant and passionate creatives at the top of their game give me a glimpse into their thought process which honestly did more for me than the 4 years I spent in “art school” (and the several thousands of dollars in student loans I owe to do so).
