Find A New Hero Series: Brian Phillipson
This week we bring to you Brian Phillipson and God the Dyslexic Dog. With credits to his name such as Celebrity DeathMatch, Daria, King of the Hill, Futurama, and Codename: Kids Next Door, you can assume that God the Dyslexic Dog is an impressive piece of work. But why assume, when you can check it at SDCC in person. (You do know you what they say about assuming?) We spoke to Brian about SDCC and his work.
What is your favorite work you have done?
My favorite work is on "God the Dyslexic Dog." It was my first comic book series and helped break me into the industry - I owe it a lot.
What current work are you most excited about?
The two new comics I'm currently working on: "Future Proof" and "The Legion of Molly Doves." Both are unique takes on time-travel stories and have potential to be long running comic book series.
What is one thing you would like to pursue if you had additional free time?
Writing an old fashioned novel. It would be a great challenge to write a story without the aid of images or art.
What do you typically offer at your booth at SDCC? Is there typically any exclusive items?
We sell all the books in our library at unbeatable prices. We also sell t-shirts, stickers, buttons and original art you can't find anywhere else.
What other uses have people found for your designs?
Stickers, T-Shirts, iPhone cases, sketches & fan art. Still waiting on that first fan tattoo!
What is your favorite autograph or collectible you’ve picked up at a convention?
It's not so much the collectibles or autographs (though there are plenty of those), but the chance to meet the artist & creators face-to-face.
What is the best SDCC or convention moment you have had?
Nothing like signing your first autograph in your first comic book and seeing that smile on the fan's face that's almost as big as yours.
