NEW**Interview with Jeff Smith, creator of Bone.
- Interview with Dan Clowes, creator of Eightball.
- Two videos from Kris Straub on drawing Starslip Crisis: short one and long one.
- Evan Dorkin's pilot for the never made cartoon series Welcome to Eltingville. This gets fandom so right it's funny and uncomfortable to watch!
- Alison Bechdel working on a graphic novel. Bechdel uses a digital camera on herself to create references for what she draws. Interesting technique. (There's a link to a better version of the video in the comments)
- Adam Hughes sketching at a convention.
- Raina Telegemeier, creator of Smile, is going to be huge this year when her graphic novel adaptation of the young-adult prose novel The Babysitter’s Club comes out. You can catch an interview with her from March here.
- A documentary on Chris Ware from last year. (There are features on other comic artists here but they may all be in french - not sure. Okay at least the one with Art Spiegelman is in english.) More recently Tom Spurgeon caught this Chicago tv station's report on Chris Ware. (The link to the video is on that page - there's a 10 second commercial on the video before the report starts)
- And nothing to do with comics is the trailer for PAC MAN: The Movie. Very funny.
