We put 5 Questions to Adam from Explosive Barrel...
Q) What’s the secret origin story of Explosive Barrel and how did it all come together?
I'd like to say I was bitten by a radioactive artist or something, but honestly I've always loved all the concept art that went on behind the scenes in films, comics and games. All the ideas that could have been and that may be saved for future projects were the best things to discover.
Q) What inspires you to create?
A lot of my friends and peers in the creative community.
Q) Since you started, what moment has been your highlight so far?
It’s difficult to pin down a single moment, but I've had a couple of repeat clients for commissions. If theres' a better sign that someone really enjoys your work, I haven't found it yet!
Q) This is your first year at True Believers as Explosive Barrel, what can people expect to find at your table on the day?
Plenty of video game inspired pixelart and illustrations. If you're a fan of sci-fi or comics there will definitely be something for everyone. But lets not forget some original works and couple of surprises too.
Q) If you could pick one line that inspires you from a comic or nerd culture as your life motto, which would you choose?
Has to be: "Ain't nuthin' like me, except me!" - Rocket Raccoon.
And don't forget to stop by their table at #TBCF2017 and say "Hello".
