Exhibitionists: Colin Giles

We’ve always tossed around the idea of including comics on KTV. Back in the day, we did a brief series with artist Ryan Thomas and it was a lot of fun. While we kept thinking about whether or not to incorporate comics in some way, we came across Colin Giles’ pencil drawings. There are no words or multi-frame story lines here, but this balding, zombie-like, pants-less, buck-toothed character sure goes through a lot and it’s all pretty hilarious. Colin is also a musician, so he’s paired this gallery with one of his songs “Dub Lady.” 

1.)Who are your top 3 artistic influencers?

Well… the whole concept of Urban Disaster, is poking fun at humanity. I like amuse myself by picking on the little things that we do, and bringing them to life as illustrations. So, rather than naming 3 people who influence me, I would have to say that it is an entire culture.

2.) Where do you create your art?

I create my art in my little teeny tiny teeny weenie home studio.

3.) How much time do you typically spend on each piece?

It all depends. Sometimes I can finish in half an hour, and other times I’ll spend many hours. Sometimes I will draw something and leave it for weeks, and then come back to it, but I normally like to knock it out, and move on to the next.

4.) What mediums do you work in?

I occasionally dabble with water colors & acrylic paints, but mostly ink & graphite on paper. I like to use wood, and sometimes I draw on food.

5.) Do you have any advice for young artists?

Your art is your gold.
