The Innovative Cartoonist: How Scott Kurtz Turned A Passion For Drawing Into A Booming Business
About Today’s Guest, Scott Kurtz:
Scott Kurtz was introduced to me by former guest, Gary Arndt. Part of Gary’s email said this:
“Scott is an Eisner and Harvey award winning cartoonist. He has been drawing PvP for over a decade and has been the leading voice in the industry. He has a great podcast and co-wrote the book on webcomics. He has been a leader in helping creators profit from their work.
I think Scott would be a great guest for the show, and it would probably be one the best shows you’ve ever done.“
I couldn’t agree more with Gary. This is one of the longest interviews I’ve ever done on the show because I was just enthralled by Scott. He has an amazing story, a rise to success that went against the traditional path, and is just an interesting guy to boot.
