It has been a while since we have had Joie Foster on! We are really excited to finally focus on her book Heavenly Kibble Guardian Corgi! If you like corgis and want to go on an adventure with a super-powered one, this is definitely the book for you. In this episode, Tyler Skypes with Joie and they talk about her history with comics, making webcomics, and about her experience self publishing and working with big independent publishers!
Don’t forget to check back in 2 weeks with our round-table discussion of the first three issues!
“A small corgi has a big secret- she’s a magical girl superhero trying to save the world! What would you do if you discovered that your dog was a superhero? Find out what happens when one owner wakes up to find that her dog must transform to rescue the planet from the evil cat queen!”
“My name is Joie (Brown) Foster. I scribble cuteness, sketch quirks, paint attitude, and herd cats. Okay. Technically I don’t herd cats, but keeping-up with Photoshop layers is pretty much the exact same thing, right? I graduated with an MFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Now I live in Los Angeles with my pretends-to-be-a-dinosaur husband Joel and my jolly, stump-legged corgi Rylee.”
