Lee Sullivan Interview Part 1
The first part of an interview with Lee Sullivan. Lee is a comic book artist who Gary and Craig first discovered through the artwork he produced for Transformers and Dr Who comic in the late 1980s. Lee became a favourite artist for both brothers and they say you shouldn't meet your heroes but this is someone who lives up to and beyond expectations. Craig said he wouldn't keep Lee long.....2 hours later they finished talking. This first 10 minute segment covers Nottingham Em-Con, how the comic book artist world has changed, Lee being a "nostalgia artist" until his latest project.... we then discuss how Lee became involved in producing the artwork for Rivers of London and have a bit of a laugh along the way.
Lee Sullivan Interview Part 2
The second part of our interview with acclaimed illustrator Lee Sullivan.
There are a few pauses in the interview which we have editored out where Lee had to go and help his wife with the car. However we have left the resulting conversation in the interview for your enjoyment. These "breaks" in conversation were at the start of this 2nd part of the interview and then at 3 mins 25 to 3 mins 40 another two "breaks" occur.
Apart from the fun of these pauses we discuss Strangeness in Space, how Lee started off drawing comics and got in to the business, drawing on his Rupert Annual and collecting toys and his wife's shoes.
Lee Sullivan Interview Part 3
In this episode Lee talks about his collection of toys, collecting them since he was a child and replacing ones he'd broken!
He then talks of how he began in the comic book industry after being a commercial illustrator for a number of years.
