Paul Bolger draws comics for a living. “I didn’t want to drive trucks like my old man. I said, if I’m going to be working long nights, it certainly won’t be driving a truck up and down the road. No, I’m going to draw.” Paul began his work in comics, but says that everything is moving towards digital animations. Having worked on classic projects like the Land Before Time, Paul explains what its like to draw for a living in this short mini-doc.
“They used to say you have 100,000 bad drawings before you get a good one. I think I’m up to 65,000.”
“Our pencils have changed, we don’t use paper anymore. It’s like saying to a guitar player, ‘what guitar did you use?’ It doesn’t really matter.”
