The Indie Index – Interview with Campbell Whyte
For those who aren’t aware of you or your work, please introduce yourself.
My name is Campbell Whyte, I’m a Perth [Australia — Mike] based comics maker. I’ve been making work for a long time, small mini-comics, card games, picture books, exhibitions and all kinds of other things. Home Time is my first, large scale comics work. When I’m not making comics, I work at the Western Australian Museum where I develop visitor engagement activities. I also run the children’s art school Milktooth with my wife Elizabeth Marruffo where I teach comics making.
A few days later, I got an email from Chris Staros of Top Shelf. From there, we started chatting. Chris understood the project immediately. All the fears that other publishers had, he was excited by them. It’s my first book? Amazing! It shifts art styles? Brilliant! It’s set in Perth? How neat! He had complete faith in the book from the beginning.
