We are very excited to bring you a series of Creator Spotlight articles that focus on our new titles, Show’s End; A story as brutal as it is beautiful. Today, Chris Sanchez was joined by series artist, Jeferson Sadzinki, to discuss a little about winning Mad Cave’s talent search and what makes his mind tick…

Art, Talent Search, and Ghosts

Chris Sanchez: Hey, Jeferson, glad to have you on our Creator Spotlight. To start things off, what are some of your major influences?

 Jeferson Sadzinski: My biggest influences as a comic book artist are Eduardo Risso, Mike Mignola, Sean Gordon Murphy, Joe Madureira and more recently I fell in love with Roger Ibáñez work. I really like stylized artwork and I’m also heavily influenced by cartoons, movies, and books.

CS: How has your experience as a Mad Cave’s First Talent Search Winner been?

JS: Awesome! It’s the first monthly job in my career. It was a really nice surprise when Mad Cave picked me and especially when they introduced me to the Show’s End project, I’m a big horror fan. I am very excited to be working side by side with great professionals and sharing the cave with other excellent comic book artists.

CS: What’s a weird fact about yourself that you care to share for the Cave Dwellers?

JS: Well, I’m fairly normal actually. Although, the ghost who lives in my apartment and with whom I have long conversations every day, told me that I’m a real weirdo for singing while I wash the dishes. 

The Creative Process

CS: Tell us a little bit about how you approached the design of this colorful cast of characters. Are there any that stand out to you personally?

JS: In the stories I read I always like to see unique characters that demonstrate their personality through their clothes, their body language, and facial expressions. I try to think about it when I’m conveying the visuals of ​​a character on paper. Twigs is certainly my favorite character.

CS: What is your favorite part of the creative process and why?

JS: Layouts are a lot of fun. Figuring out the best way to tell the story visually and engage the reader is also the most challenging step.
