Moby Talks About Cartooning and Small Press Comics

Most people know Moby as a musician or a DJ, but he’s also a big fan of comic books — and a board member at NYC’s Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA). He spoke with ComicsAlliance about his love of the medium — particularly the work of James Kochalka, Molly Crabapple, Jonathan Ames and Dean Haspiel — and his own original cartooning.

Moby’s newest album, “Wait For Me,” uses his own art throughout, focusing on a cartoon character he calls The Little Idiot, “a little guy with round eyes and antennae.” When the time came to make the press kit for the new album, rather than simply issuing a Q&A, he decided to animate The Little Idiot and answer the questions as a cartoon character instead.

He mentioned a personal interest in creating small press titles: “I’d love to make comic books, but I’d like to make little vanity press things with [a run] of like 50 of them. Not even with a narrative, just beautifully-printed, hand drawn comic books.”
