Artist Spotlight: The Oatmeal

Written by Riri (@lillyums)

Meet our Artist Spotlight, Matthew Inman! Owner and creator of the wildly popular web comic, The Oatmeal. We had the opportunity to interview him at Emerald City Comic Con 2014!  You may recognize several of his widely popular web comics, including Why the Mantis Shrimp is my Favorite Animal, My Dog: The Paradox, and 10 Words You Need to Stop Misspelling. His web comics aren't like the typical web comics you may be thinking of.  A strong narrative is the cornerstone of many of his comics featuring the character, often combined with humorous illustrations with a bit of an educational spin.

Check out our interview with him as he discuss his inspirations, his creative process, and what to expect in the near future from The Oatmeal!
