Amanda Bacchi joins Tristan Jones in a relaxed, wide-ranging conversation about his career as a gun artist for such titles as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Mad Max: Fury Road and now, Aliens. Find out what he enjoys about drawing these iconic characters, what he listens to while drawing, does he even have a life outside of comics? Is it as glamorous as one might imagine?
Presenter: TRISTAN JONES
Artist turned writer turned writer/illustrator Tristan “T-Rex” Jones was born and raised in Melbourne and though spent much of his time growing up by the ocean, is certainly not the sailor most people find when Googling or Wikipediaing his name.
THIS Tristan has quickly made his mark in the comics industry following a critically acclaimed run on Mirage Studios’ “Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series that has since led to further comic smashes as a part of the creative team on IDW’s “Ghostbusters” ongoing series and the action-horror smash Infestation: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
