Writer-in-Residence - P. A. Nolte

We've had a most excellent time hosting Derek Adnams, but this week sees a new writer joining us: P. A. Nolte!

Another talented writer I came across through Nic Shaw's The Prompt, P.A. wowed me with his scripts and ideas (and also his lettering, something that the man has down on lock).  Looking more into his work, I thought he'd be a fine fit with our motley crew and he thankfully agreed.  You may remember him from various play-at-home postings in the weeks leading up to his residency, but enough from me.  Let's hear what he has to say:

Who Are You?
P. A. Nolte. I cover art with words.  
Why Comics?
I love the collaboration. And the exploratory nature. And the rules. Which sounds stupid, but is totally true. If you're going to go exploring, it helps to know the constellations so you can orient yourself. If you're going to make comics, it helps to know the 180° rule so you can orient your readers. But, once you know what plants to leave alone, or how to use a page-turn effectively, there's no wrong way to go. And, if you're lucky, you get to do it with someone who shares that same passion for exploration as you do.  
Where Can One Find You?
I'm on Twitter (@PANolte) and Facebook (/PANolte and /InkspotComics), I pop up over at David Brown's Fifth Dimension Comics from time to time, I just finished letters on Eric Palicki's Red Angel Dragnet, and I hope to have a new project or two of my own see release by the end of the year.

Wicked.  Welcome aboard, my friend.
