“E.T. n’ Robot Planetarium,” by Steve Cartwright

[Editors’ Note: This is an interview Andrew did with Steve. Obviously?]

Andrew: How are you today, Steve?

Steve: Good morning, Andrew. I’d like to say, first off,  that I’ve followed your career intently, even after that “incident” when so many of your  air-weather friends shunned you.

Andrew: Yeah. I won’t miss Eileen, either.

Steve: I must say that is a very daring fashion statement you’re making today; not just anybody can pull off that coyotes and avocados thing.

Andrew: Oh, I get that a lot. It’s really just a t-shirt with a coyote-and-avocado print, but it’s pretty convincing, right? The trick is the scent.

Steve: I hope you don’t mind my sketching my next work while we talk. Yes I use these models a lot. They’re the best nude models around.

Andrew: Do you use models when creating this piece? Live ones? Nude ones?

Steve: No, no. It’s part of a motif where cast shadows tell part of the story. I sketch the idea as supplied to me by my Mysterious Muse, and color it in Photoshop.

Andrew: Photoshop is sorcery.


Steve says: “It’s well known that an artist becomes more popular by dying, so I’m typing this with one hand while pummeling my head with a frozen mackerel with the other. I’ve done art for several magazines, newspapers, websites, commercial and governmental clients, books, and scribbling—but mostly drooling—on tavern napkins. I also create art pro bono for several animal rescue groups. I was awarded the 2004 James Award for my cover art for Champagne Shivers. I recently illustrated the Cimarron Review, Stories for Children, and Still Crazy magazine covers. Take a gander (or a goose) at my online gallery: www.angelfire.com/sc2/cartoonsbycartwright.”
