The 5 Question Interview #34 with Blue Jay Cartoons

We put 5 Questions to Jay from Blue Jay Cartoons...

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Jay, I am a 3rd year student at Staffordshire university doing BA (Hons) Cartoon and Comic Arts. 

I am a freelance cartoonist and animator who enjoys character design.

What can people expect to find at your table at True Believers?

My completed comic 'Bubblegum Vampire' alongside some of my previous comics, such as an amusing retelling of Rapunzel aimed at children.

What’s your favourite thing about what you do?

Creating my own characters and stories, i loved comics because they were like the perfect mash-up of movies and books, images to go along with the story helped me to visualise movement and places. But seeing people flicking through my comics and laughing or even better relating to the characters makes any amount of work worth while. 

What was the first comic you collected?

I started comics young so my first comics were Sonic the Hedgehog and the older Batman comics (with bundles of newspaper comic pages stashed away too).

If you had to recommend one comic (or story arc) to people, which would it be?

Any story with Oracle or the Birds of Prey is cool (disabled characters are few and far between), also the new hawkeye comics are great.

Thanks Jay.
