Ed Piskor, creator of Hip Hop Family Tree which debuted right here at Boing Boing shared with us some of the ancient artistic tools that inspires his unique technique. While drawing a splendid Happy Mutant, he takes us through his "war chest": zip-a-tone sheets, letraset, a Leroy lettering gadget, risography, and the immortal spirit of great cartooning. He also muses on what it's like to teach students who know every corner of a Wacom tablet, but recoil in horror when the only undo level is a splodge of white-out. Enjoy the minute visit to his studio! And keep an eye out for the Happy Mutant you see below—we'll be auctioning them for a good cause soon. Read the rest. Read the rest of the Hip Hop Family Tree comics!

The large-format volume is strictly a chronicle, presenting the major figures in hip-hop as they appear and make their impressions on the music. Hip Hop Family Tree imagines real-world events through the filter of s Marvel Comics, bringing hip-hop visionaries to the page in a style that exaggerates their energy and style to capture the intensity of the music without having the beats. To tell this story in any language would be a challenge; to tell it in the language of comics feels like a magical summoning. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
