Guest Q&A: Warren Wucinich


Las Vegas’ own Warren Wucinich is a fantastic illustrator, in-demand caricature artist, and suave man-about-town, but he’s likely best known as a comic book colorist, especially for his work on Oni Press’ Courtney Crumrin series. Wucinich will share his hint and tips for digital coloring during a show-and-tell panel at 1 p.m. during this year’s VVCBF. We asked him some questions to get to know him better:

1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you– no, no wait…

2. What is your greatest fear? 
Stagnation. Complacency

I’m horrible with time management. I was even late turning in this questionnaire.

4. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I get to draw for a living.

5. What do you most dislike about yourself?
I am not Superman.

6. Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

Motivation. Ambition. But not take-over-the-world ambition. Not step-on-others motivation. Ambition with a sense of fairness is sexy.

To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you– no, no wait…
