While I have interviewed many celebrities at C2E2 over the years, this year I added a new element. I brought Joey Roth to handle the interview duties.
The current IPW Chicagoland Champ, Joey has been wreaking havoc on the Chicago wrestling scene for years. The self-described “best villain ever,” has also embarked on an acting career. A natural entertainer, Joey seemed to be a perfect choice to conduct interviews and I am proud to say he hit a home run. Actually, he hit several home runs.
Our first interview was with Ali Cantarella of Cantarella Ink. A native of the Detroit area, Ali is now based in Chicago. She holds a BFA in Illustration from Columbia College Chicago. In 2013, she released her debut comic, The Hasty Pastry, which focuses on a girl, her dog, a bakery and all the wackiness that ensues. Ali creates with watercolor, pen and ink, technical pens and multimedia.
Ali is one of my favorite artists and I am happy to have gotten this interview. She is as cool as she is talented.
I hope you enjoyed meeting Ali and will check out Cantarella.Ink. Ali was our first interview this year, but Joey wasn't done and I am not done with my recaps of C2E2. Over the next several days, I will be running more interviews Joey conducted at C2E2.
