Home Con News ICE MARGATE 2018: In Conversation with Rodney Ramos, 15th April 2018

This past weekend, Shane Chebsey and his team have brought their not inconsiderable expertise of running the International Comic Expo shows for an inaugural event in the south-east coastal town of Margate in the UK. Held at the majestic and historic Margate Winter Gardens over two days (Saturday 14th / Sunday 15th April 2018), it attracted some truly stellar talent from the world of comics, both small press and mainstream.

AEISD Leonard Sultana has been in attendance and has recorded the panels being held over the weekend – however, due to one or two quiet spells in attendance (ahh, lunchtime!), there were times that the panel format was abandoned for something a little more… informal! So, as Leonard and artist Rodney Ramos moved from the stage down into the seating area, this presentation became more of an intimate ‘fireside chat’ to talk about Rodney’s career, his influences, his thoughts on the current landscape of comics illustration and where the industry could go to advance and progress. A cool talk…

Thanks to Shane and his team for the putting on of the event, and to Rodney for allowing me to present this interview.
