07.15.2012: G-Fest Live Show with Godzilla Artists

G-Fest Live Show

Bob Eggleton, Jeff Zornow and Matt Frank join Kyle for the first ever G-Fest live show (first of many, perhaps?) to talk about putting Godzilla on paper!

Holy smokes, you guys…. what an amazing time I had today at G-Fest. This was definitely the place for a live show to take place, so we just have to get more of these happening!

This is episode 61 of the Kaijucast and I am joined in Chacago in front of a sizable crowd (for real this time) by Bob Eggleton, Matt Frank and Jeff Zornow and we just scratched the ¬†surface of what it takes to be a Godzilla artist these days. Since I had all three of them on the panel, the conversation did have a serious slant towards the IDW comics, but I really felt like the overall thoughts were on drawing the “Big G’.¬†Because this was a live show, there wasn’t really any news covered – even though around the same time, a teaser trailer for Legendary Pictures’ upcoming Godzilla was shown in San Diego for SDCC. I only played one song this month – it was a request from Ryan and as a tribute to the recently deceased Emi Ito of the Peanuts.

Aside from that, there’s really only a few links to share, but please do check them out.
