JEREMY TINDER on TRUBBLE CLUB
Colin: First I think we should explain who you are and what Trubble Club is… What is your relationship with the group and are you able to tell us a little more about how Trubble Club started?
Jeremy: Trubble Club began as a group of local cartoonists just getting together to hang out and draw. Many of us had been getting together and making exquisite corpse drawings or just hanging out in apartments or on stoops making drawings. One night, Lucy Knisley had a large group of us over, and the first Trubble Club comics were drawn. We didn’t set out to start a collective or collaborative group, it just happened.
We had so much fun, we started meeting weekly, and developed kind of a formula for making jam comics. Our comics generally begin as a single panel drawn by a single artist, but gets thrown into the “pile” or “stack”. That stack is passed around to artists ready to draw. Once they find a strip they have an idea to add onto, they do so, and pass the stack around to someone else. Some comics are finished in a session or two. Some take years. Some never get finished.Read More »
