We put five questions to Twisted Art's Sarah Wadley...
Who are you and what do you do?
I'm Twisted Art, aka Sarah Wadey, and I'm a freelance illustrator. Sadly this has yet to become my full time job but one day, my friends, one day. I create and sell both original art and fanart in various forms. I've been told I'm not too shabby with a pencil...
What can people expect to find at your table at True Believers?
Geekery galore! There'll be lots of goodies up for sale, including magnets, badges, prints, canvases, sketchcards and posters. I'm also hoping to have Volume One of my graphic novel up for sale - written in conjunction with my good friends Square Orange Games, this has been in development for the last year and a half and we're very excited about it. I can't tell you much more though - it's all very hush-hush at the moment. Cue epic evil laughter...
What's your favourite thing about what you do?
Drawing has always been a passion for me, ever since I was old enough to hold my first crayon without eating it. I love creating art for friends and family, and I love seeing their reactions when they see the finished piece. I'm also now totally addicted to the convention scene - cosplayers everywhere, you have my respect!
What was the first comic you collected?
I'm very much an eighties child and have always been a Marvel fangirl. The first comic I remember owning was an edition of The Uncanny X-men #266 I believe it was, the issue that introduced my favourite Cajun, Gambit. :) I still have it tucked away somewhere safe.The issue number may be wrong as I've imbibed a fair amount of beer since then...
If you had to recommend one comic (or story arc) to people, which would it be?
As much as I claim to be a devoted Marvel lover, I do have a soft spot for DC as well. There are many I could list but one of my absolute favourites would have to be Batman: The Killing Joke. For me, it's one of the best Batman stories ever written. I love how the yin and yang relationship between Batman and the Joker is represented and the darker edge always sends a chill up my spine. It's a definite must read!
And that's all folks!
