Matthew Kalamidas, Art Director for the Science Fiction Book Club

Over on Tor.com:

An Interview with Science Fiction Book Club art director, Matthew Kalamidas.

A sample:

What are the exciting and/or scary aspects about working with an artists you never worked with before?
There’s always the concern that we stay on schedule, the work meets everyone’s expectations and that the entire experience is a good one. It’s always a thrill to make a new connection with an artist and to talk through a project and develop what we all feel is a great result. I prefer a very fluent relationship where I can go back and forth with the artist and bounce ideas off of each other (as time permits).

Full interview on Tor.com.

(What I didn't ask, and really should have, was how did he get that super awesome Donato "Wizards" painting. Hmmm....follow-up time. Stay tuned.)

Thanks so much for the interview. I always love hearing about projects from an art director's perspective- whether they talk about what they look for, how they come upon artists, or how to best have everyone end up satisfied and proud in the end. It seems almost maddening to have the entirety of the illustration community to choose from when it comes down to a new job. Thankfully, I'd imagine his fine art background must help in being able to continually find new, talented, and dependable artists by pouring through page after page of websites and blogs.

I love the fact that he commented about artists keeping their websites up-to-date - a comment I made here weeks ago when you were complaining about hating flash web sites.

Good interview!

Once I played Anarchy, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have Archlord gold. He gave me some Archlord money, he said that I could buy Archlord gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some archlord online Gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap Archlord gold to anyone who want.
