Rehab Exit Interview: Alice Mrongovius

February 29, 2008

1. Briefly describe your experience at comic artist rehab:

I really enjoyed having the chance to do smaller pieces – and auto-bio as well, capturing something from each four day period. The live drawing at sticky was the highlight – getting everyone together, talking and drawing comics.

2. What, if anything, did you learn from the program?

Just how quickly I can come up with and produce something (that I am happy with).

3. Which one of your own comics are you most pleased with and why?

Day 10, I have had this thought on my mind for a while, usually on the walk back from the city it hits me. Really feel like this captures the moment – but also I am now relieved of it clunking around in my head.

4. Which one of your own comics are you least pleased with and why?

It’s not whole comics – each of them has its own thing going for it – just some panels are rushed and was probably too hungover too often.

5. Do you hope to keep up drawing comics after rehab? If so, how often.

I was just getting back into drawing comics everyday when rehab came along… so its really pushed that along. I have a long term comic book project that I want to finish this year, and this has really helped get me into the pace I need to work at.

6. Any suggestions for future rounds?

Having a compounded hangover on the day you are posting, looking at a blank page is something to be avoided.

Artist Introduction: Alice Mrongovius

January 31, 2008


So I create comics, but then I get caught up in designing clothes, going to a lot of parties, working extra jobs to fund comic books, getting involved with arts festivals, studying fine art and researching quantum physics. Then it’s three or four years later and I am still working (intermittently) on the same graphic novel. This seems to be a recurring theme, somehow I manage to get involved in large time consuming projects getting caught up in all the possibilities and then stuck in indecision or just another re –edit. With rehab I’m looking forward to a bit more spontaneity and a little less grinding obsession.
