Cool People # 6 – Joe Carr
Joe Carr is a pen and ink artist that grabbed Pads & Panels attention with his Threadless Select Tee, Full Throttle. The fact that he got printed enough times on Threadless to have the honor of designing his own Select Tee wasn’t the only reason Joe caught our eye. The fact he decided to take his love for Jack Kirby and the Silver Age of comics to design the Full Throttle tee, and then take that idea to continue the story told on the tee to make a mini-comic to accompany it – that’s what really caught our attention. Joe’s love for comics and love for a simpler time mixed with a sci-fi fascination has inspired him to make numerous prints. It has also seen him work on cool projects for the staff of this year’s remake of Clash of the Titans. Pads & Panels caught up with Carr via email to discuss Full Throttle and his other fantastic work in edition #6 of Cool People.
