Tom Cutting, creator of the Stickman Diaries, talks about the winding path of his working life, including copying code for Pong to play with his brother, working in desktop publishing and the prepress industry, and eventually embracing the internet. He also talks about his favorite piece of tech, the iPad, and how it makes it possible for him to do art.
About Stickman Diaries:
One of the things I like about Micro.blog is that I don’t feel like I’m performing. If somebody likes it, they like it. I’m doing it really for myself, as a record of things. The nice thing about not knowing whose following you is there’s no number ticking up to make you think, ‘Oh no, I must get my drawing out this week, I can’t disappoint my viewers.’
