The mighty hand of Belasco is responsible for more works than what I am permitted to share. That said, it's an honor to have such a distinguished and accomplished artist participate in my Q&A. This week's load is salted with tips for success and thick with insight into the man behind so many scenes, Belasco.

BELASCO: An Insight

What single super power would you like to have?

What would you use it for?
"Rimming the varsity football team"

What is your biggest indulgence?
"Traveling and Comic Books"

Is there a creed or motto you live by?
" 'If you wait until you're ready, you'll never be ready.' "

Who is your favorite fictional villian?
"Barack...(joking). The Joker"

Which living person do you admire the most?
"It may be cliché, but what the hell, Barack's my boy."

How would you like to die?
"I would love to have a cute male nurse sit on my face and send me off to the great beyond. No lie"


Is there anything you don't like to draw?
"Cars. Buildings. Clothes!"

If both could sustain your lifestyle, which would you do more, sculpting or illustrating?
"I really enjoy sculpting more these days. The sensation of u
sing my hands to create something in three dimensions is very satisfying."

Do you have any tips or tricks for overcoming blocks in creativity?
"Don't wait for 'inspiration,' just draw something, even if you don't like it. To perfect any skill, there has to be discipline involved. It's just like going to the gym (I'm told - HA!). You can't wait for inspiration for that either. You have to do it whether you feel like it or not to get anywhere. I usually suggest giving yourself a set time out of the day to ju
st devote to your art without worrying about whether what you're doing is good or not."

You have a ton of experience in the art and comic world. Do you have any words of wisdom for those of us aspiring to make a career for ourselves in the industry?
"Meet people who are doing what you want to do. Take criticsm constructively and present your work professionally. Layer your goals. A lot of people have one rigid vision of what they want to achieve if they can't do that, then they don't want to do any of the steps it takes to achieve their ultimate goal. Keep your goals general and with each success, refine your goals and make them more specific."

What is your favorite part about drawing?
"I enjoy the inking process the most."

What is your least favorite part about drawing?
"Penciling is pain for me usually but a necessary evil."

What projects are you currently working on?
"There's rumblings of another book on par with 'The Brothers of New Essex' and sporadically posting to my blog."


Biggest Turn On:
"Big hands and nice feet"

Biggest Turn Off:
"No sense of humor and ugly feet"

Most Overrated Thing About Sex:
"The actual intercourse. Everything that happens before and after is actually sexier to me."

Does your dick have a name?
"No, but if it did it would be in French."

What's Your Fetish?
"Nice manly feet and an asshole that can kiss me back."

How often do you beat off?

"As often as I brush my teeth. And I have very white teeth."

Favorite position:
"Sit on my face and bring a book."

Belasco, Ladies(?)...and Gentlemen.
Thank you, Belasco for taking time from your very busy schedule to share yourself with us.


  1. The editing process of this interview took twice the time as it normally does because Belasco's answers kept me in the giggles and sent my mind off on too many tangents.

  2. That makes 2 of us, Sean!
    Each of his responses sparked new questions to add to my Q&A.
