Wanna hear me talk about tracing paper? I said, DO YOU WANNA HEAR ME TALK ABOUT TRACING PAPER? Of course you do, silly billy.
Well, then, smart guy, check out this ever so delightful interview by Scott Perez Fox with yours truly on The Busy Creator Podcast.
Take it away Scott:
Prescott speaks to Cartoonist & Illustrator Josh Latta, on how he got started in art, his daily workflow and routine, and making a name for himself on the Internet. We also dissect the difference between a cartoonist and an illustrator, and question the use of hand-drawn vs. typeset lettering in comics.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled ‘Brimstones’ to bring you Erin & Josh.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Lattaland.
More to come!
My pal and incredible cartoonist, Hunter Jin Clark asked me a few questions a while back about the importance of having an internet presence to build/promote a career in comics. While I’m a professional floor mopper slash glory hole attendant I thought I’d take a stab at his questions anyway. Here’s the interview in full, dig it, suckers.
1. What is your primary format for comics? I.e. Mainstream, Small Press, Creator Owned, Webcomics, etc.?
I would consider what I do as creator owned, sure, but mostly I would say is I do a ‘funny animal’ comic.

Best Movies: Killing Them Softly: What a crying shame this movie went over with a thud. From the jarring opening sequence to the hilarious last line. This movie was like heroin to me; totally awesome. Marley: Look, I’m not really a Bob Marley fan, but one cannot deny he lived quite an interesting life. Just think of how good he woulda been if it weren’t for the Jah bullshit.
Best TV Shows: Boardwalk Empire: Proof that TV is better than movies. Comedy Bang Bang: Proof that TV is better than podcasts.
Best Books (non-fiction): The Dark Side Of Disney by Leonard Kinsey. Kinsey gives us all of the tips, tricks, scams, and stories that’d have Walt rolling in his cryogenic grave. I love a good scam, especially at a beloved theme park. Life After Deathby Damien Echols SPOILER ALERT Damien talks about how he killed those kids and got away with it too, dude. Just kidding.
