O’ReillyNet.com: An Interview With Illiad

Chris: How did you get started drawing User

Illiad: By accident. I have been cartooning
since I was 12. One day while working at an ISP, I drew a few
cartoons and my co-workers enjoyed them. I drew one month’s worth
of cartoons and posted them online. After that I quit; it was all I
had planned to do. Apparently people had been following the cartoon
online, because I quickly got e-mail from readers, one who said
that if I didn’t keep drawing, he would hunt me down and kill me. I
took it as a jest (I hope it was one…), but went back to drawing

“I had actually tried to get into cartooning before that. I
started drawing a cartoon, Dust Puppies, and sent it in to the six
major syndicates and received six rejection letters. I didn’t think
I would ever be a cartoonist.”

Chris: What is your inspiration?”
