Did you like the Dinosaurs at Work story in the May issue of Chirp Magazine? I loved the drawings of Dino-Mike and Dino-Bob. We asked the artist who illustrated this story, Marcus Cutler, a few questions to get to know him better. Let’s hear what he had to say!
Chirp: Hi, Marcus! Thanks for drawing the pictures for this story. Did you like drawing the dinosaurs?
Marcus: No, I didn’t like drawing the dinosaurs for the story… I LOVED IT! I’m a big dinosaur nerd, and had lots of fun making the art for the story. My favourite dinosaur is ankylosaurus. If you look closely maybe you’ll see where I snuck one into the Chirp story.
Chirp: What is your favourite thing to draw now and what did you like to draw when you were a kid?
Marcus: My favourite thing to draw has always been silly characters, which is another reason I loved drawing this story. Dino-Mike and Dino-Bob are very silly indeed.
Chirp: Did you go to school to learn to draw or did you teach yourself?
Marcus: When I was a kid I taught myself to draw using things like the Ed Emberly drawing books. Later I copied comic books. Then I went to art college in Toronto. The teachers there helped me to get much better at drawing and painting.
Chirp: Do you know any good jokes?
