Since starting Therefore I Geek, we’ve had the good fortune to be able to share quality independant projects that are in need of a little crowdfunding. Recently we had the oppurtunity to discuss one such project, The Man With Ten Thousand Eyes, with its creator Joe Badon. Make sure to head on over and support Joe and his project.
Therefore I Geek: Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself to get started?
Joe Badon: My name is Joe Badon. I’m 38 years old. I live in Slidell, Louisiana (where I was born and raised). It’s just outside of New Orleans.
I’ve been a freelance illustrator since 2008. I have a wife and two teenager girls (and a dog).
TIG: How did you get into comics?
JB: I started reading comics at a pretty young age. My dad had Zapp Comix and underground hippie comics and my older brother had Marvel and DC Comics. I always leaned toward the weirder stuff. Continue reading →
