My name is Pat Loika.
I'm a writer, illustrator and podcaster based out of San Diego, CA. I also dabble in photography and way too many other activities to list.
This is where I do my personal blogging, with random thoughts, nonsense, art and photos.
I’ve always admired the role of a colorist in the creation of a comic book. They wield the power to make a bad page look incredible, they help make the details pop out of the page, and they help establish the mood and the setting of a story with the palette they choose.
They are every bit as important to the creative process as an illustrator.
They deserve to be treated as such.
So, if you happen to run a convention and don’t consider these folks an equal to a writer or an artist, chances are, I won’t be giving your convention any business.
