2014 in Review: Scarlette Baccini

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2014?

Being part of Dale Maccanti's 'Peter Pumpkinhead' project was heaps of fun, I loved seeing it all unfold. I was also very happy to have my short story 'Bug' published alongside some terrific comics by some very talented ladies in the second issue of 'Oi Oi Oi!'. And, last month I wrote my most ridiculous script yet. I can't wait to draw it.

What are some of the comics you've enjoyed in 2014?

I was lucky to share a table with Mark Hobby at this year's Armageddon, where read and thoroughly enjoyed his first issue of 'Job Dun, Fat Assassin'. Jase Harper's 'Awkwood' was also a real treat, and I happily devoured Chris Gooch's 'Very Quiet, Very Still'.

What is something non-comics that you have enjoyed in 2014?  

My band put out its debut full-length album this year, which was a monumental amount of work, but very satisfying. The whole process taught me a great deal about life, art, effort, and misery. I hope to take all of those lessons with me into my comic book universe.

What are you looking forward to in 2015?

I'm looking forward to having enough time to tend to my comics again, and to publishing my most ridiculous Zombolette story so far.
