Darryl Banks is a comic book artist who has worked with DC Comics, most notably for Green Lantern in the mid-90s, introducing the character of Kyle Rayner. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Darryl and I talk about the unique storytelling opportunity he had with Green Lantern, as well as the other comic book trends of the 90s (killing title characters, novelty covers, Image in general). We also get a chance to compare the similarities and differences between DC and Marvel comics, and how conventions from one universe sometimes don’t translate well to the other.

E5444D8E-6632-41A8-850C-5DD17ED84B55


Jerry Bennett, the first guest ever on Hungry Trilobyte, returns for episode #50! Jerry and I discuss the challenges of being creative in 2020 and the unique opportunities still around for artists. Jerry has been on an incredible self-improvement regimen, and I make the point that the ‘starving artist’ myth does more harm than good. Speaking of thriving, we discuss how Jerry was a guest at the OK Art Crawl, an art show for the socially distanced. I brag on some awesome open-source creative apps like GIMP, LibreOffice, and Ubuntu Studio. Jerry sings the praises of Procreate.
