6 Questions with Ryan Quackenbush

First comic you remember reading: X-Men unlimited #1. It was also the art that stuck with me the most at that age.

Creators who have inspired you: I prefer illustrators the most, artists that extend their reach beyond comics. I admire Dave McKean, Sergio Toppi, Moebius, Al Williamson, Egon Schiele, Tolouse-Lautrec, Bill Sienkiewicz, Walter Sickert, Sam Kieth, Gustav Klimt, Alberto Breccia, Bob Peak, Bernie Fuchs, David Mack, Dino Battaglia, Phil Hale, and Jim Steranko.

Dream project: Any creator owned project as long as I believed in it. I would also love to work on Sandman, Judge Dredd, the Shadow, and continuing Strange Streets all the way into what I see planned for it.

Current Project: Right now, I’m finishing up the first issue to “Peony” written by Kara Uranga and continuing that until the story concludes, and then in the beginning stages of a very ambitious book, “Deprecated” written by Gren Radcliff.

Favorite Art tools: Various brushes, inks, charcoals, pastels and Photoshop for editing.

Anything special for ACME/Free Comic Book Day: ACME will be the first time I’m selling my first two issues of “Strange Streets.”
