Interviewed: Tom Tomorrow on illustration as a cartoonist

Ward Sutton asks Dan Perkins (Tom Tomorrow) about the illustration work he does on occasion.

WARD SUTTON: Do you actively look for illustration work?

TOM TOMORROW: I honestly don’t. Occasionally an interesting project falls in my lap, like a book cover or the album art and packaging I designed for Pearl Jam. But in general, I’m pretty busy researching, writing, and drawing my cartoon every week, as well as taking care of all the pesky details that a sole proprietor has to deal with.

Ward has done several other interviews such as this. Check out Roz Chast, Jen Sorensen, Derf and Kate Beaton.
