For your reading pleasure, Comic Related interviews Shawn Martinbrough about his collaboration with Robert Kirkman, his artistic process, and his thoughts on becoming a master thief.
Here’s a quick tidbit:
CR: How much research have you done into the world of thieves to get the feel and locations right in the series?
SM: I use a ton of references. Whenever I get a new script I research the locations. For example, the current Thief of Thieves storyline, written by Andy Diggle, is set in Venice, Italy so I have totally immersed myself in the visuals of the canals and architecture. Regarding the characters, I always try to give them a distinctive look that is representative of their personalities and background. It is also important to me to add diversity wherever I can. Fortunately, Robert has been very supportive of my choices in this area.
