TIGER TALK with Special Guest: Geof Darrow

It was a rather random opportunity which lead to Interviewing the legendary Geof Darrow, creator of The Shaolin Cowboy and concept artist behind such films as The Matrix. After some days of preparation and two pages of neatly typed out questions, we met over zoom an immediately discarded any pretense of a formal interview to enjoy a free-wheeling conversation which covered his comics & movie work, tales of interesting people he’s met and a surprisingly in-depth conversation of the many Kung Fu & Samurai films which we both love and consider influences.

Many of those details will be covered in the official interview at KungFuMagazine.com

But below you’ll find some of the enjoyable tangents we took which might be more of interest to comic and movie aficionados in particular.
