Distractotron’s Interview with Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC
Hello again El Moochadores! Distractotron’s video of this post really kind of helped. I’ve been having a very tough time managing my personal life and my creative life (career?) and things have been kind of… dark lately. There are a lot of obstacles (many of which I think I make my self) to getting stuff done, and it is hard for a guy like me to maintain focus. Not to mention the clinical depression and constant fear that just clings to everything I do. However, there’s always this thing of “just do it anyways” that keeps me (and Chudd) creating art, or comic strips, or even (someday) a comic book. Watching DMC talk about making comic books doesn’t fix anything for me – not by a damn site- but there’s a moment at the end where he talks about the passions we’ve had since kids and not letting them die. I think he’s right that a lot of comic books and comic art are a part of me and it’s very important to bring that stuff out. I really hope DMC is successful at comics as he was at music, and I hope videos like this help the creatives out there to focus just a little more on the stuff that is important in life. Like a comic stirp about foul mouthed mice, or a comic book about a fire breathing super cow. Very important.
So, enjoy the video. It was filmed at New York Comic Con 2017, and hit the link above to see s’more really great videos from Distractotron. Guys who’re doing it right. You can also go check out DMC’s comics at the official Darrel Makes Comics website. Now I have to go draw some mice, then figure out how the hell I’m going to pay the rent.
