Palette: an interview with Jordie Bellaire

December 6, 2011

This week the Comic Cast chats with colourist, cartoonist & illustrator Jordie Bellaire! Jordie has coloured everything from The Fantastic Four to Hellraiser and is currently the colourist for  Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes from BOOM!. Most recently she coloured Roger Langridge’s tale ‘Old Nick and The Peddler’ in Jim Henson’s The Storyteller edited by Nate Cosby. Here she discusses the path that led her to become a colourist, where that roles fits in to the creation and direction of a comic book and the creator owned projects she’s currently working on. Enjoy!
