Mason Mastroianni, who draws the B.C., Wizard of Id, and Dogs of C-Kennel comic strips and is also the co-writer on B.C., was interviewed by Tom Ward for The Sports Page Weekly.
TW: You work on B.C. and Wizard of Id. How do you divvy up your time to work on each strip?
MM: I find that I kind of go with the flow. Some weeks I’ll draw all Wizard and other weeks I’ll just write. Occasionally, there is a week where I don’t draw at all. Usually, I draw almost every day. Also, I do the Dogs of C-Kennel with my brother Mick. He writes it and I draw it. So it’s 3 strips a day and that’s when I know I’m right where I need to be. The past couple weeks I’ve been working nights and doing a lot of other work during the day. Before that I would get up at 6 am and work until noon. That was the best time for me to get most of my work done.
An unasked question that I will ask:
Whatever happened to the John Hart Studios newsletter?
It’s been two years since I got the last one.
