The work of an artist isn’t much different from other pursuits. You have to plan, react to change, and it doesn’t hurt if you’re in the right place at the right time. This week, we talk with cartoonist and one of the organizers of Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, Jeff Smith, to discuss the origins of his character Bone, the importance of getting buy-in to those that you’re accountable to, what it was like to have Bone get picked up by Netflix, and what the virtual Cartoon Crossroads Columbus will look like this year.
