My post-event coverage of C2E2 2021 brings me to Michael Watson for the first time. Actually, Victor Dandridge (seen here last week) brought me to Michael. Johngy's Beat Special Contributor Joey Roth handled the introduction interview with Michael. That interview can be found at On the Beat With Michael Watson at C2E2 2021.
I love the interplay between Michael and Victor. It's obvious they work well together and have a similar vision. They both are doing great things in the industry.
Michael is a freelance artist at Upper Deck and the Publisher/Lead Creative at Freestyle Komics, among other things. He is currently promoting his Kickstarter campaign for Emerald Quest #1. It is billed as "a world of might and magic seen through the eyes of a young warrior." There are three issue of Emerald Quest already done and issue #4 is written.
Michael talked about Emerald Quest and his other projects in the interview. After returning home, I checked out his Kickstarter page and was intrigued by the summary and trailer. I see why Michael is so excited. This looks great.
I love discovering creators I haven't met previously, especially such positive influences like Michael (and Victor). I look forward to seeing Michael again and getting an update from him. Maybe even a joint interview with him and Victor for double fun?
