We got in touch with Danielle Ritchie to get her thoughts on life, love, and all things comic related. Here’s what she was able to divulge: Anomalous Comics: Let’s start with the basics. Who are you and what do you do? Danielle Ritchie: I’m Danni, and I spend a good bit of my time dreaming up ideas of unprecedented brilliance. Sometimes, I even write them down.AC: What projects have you done or been apart of? DR: I’ve racked up quite a collection of hitherto useless Fine Art credits, and I did some inking on Strangest War Stories Never Told for Riot Press. I’m currently working the script for another war story, and inking for AC’s Webcomic Relief. AC: Was there a major event that led up to your decision to draw comics? DR: I lived a rather lonesome childhood as a homeschooled kid, and my first friends and drawing subjects were Archie and The Gang (“Archie?” Yes, Archie.). It was downhill from there. Can’t get enough of it. AC: Who are your influences? DR: I’ve been on a Tony Harris binge for like, a year and a half. AC: What would you be doing now if you weren’t making comics? DR: Whining about not making comics. AC: What advice can you give to aspiring artists? DR: Throw away your eraser. AC: What is your favorite quote? DR: “The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.” – de Kooning AC: What is your favorite comic series or OGN? What are you reading now? DR: My favorite is whatever’s in front of me at the time. Right now, I’m working my way through James Robinson’s Starman. AC: What are your dream projects? Just in case someone who can make that happen is reading this. DR: I really just want to get some more experience and pick up some better methods, especially for story writing. All of my super-secret dreams are still in utero. AC: What are you most looking forward to this year? DR: I’m totally bonkers about getting the chance to work with Anomalous Comics. I’ll graduate from college this fall, so I can stop messing around with this education business and spend some time doing something worthwhile, like making comics. AC: Where can we find you? DR: My e-mail address is here, and I’m on Facebook and Instagram. AC: Anything else you’d like to add? DR: Party on, Wayne.
