At Philadelphia Wizard World, we had the pleasure of sitting down with local artists Chris Walter and Lauren Niedelman, who spoke to us about their work, their inspirations, and their aspirations as they represent their collaborative project, Cowboys and Robitussin.

Chris and Lauren talk about how it can be overwhelming working in a crowded art scene such as Philadelphia’s, but how it makes for a great learning experience. This year marked only their second time at the convention, and they spoke of how being there a second time made a world of difference in preparation and mindset.

They talk about how they began working on their Cowboys and Robitussin webcomic, and how they collaborate as college students in animation and developing their art.  In developing the Cowboys and Robitussin project, Walter discussed the influences that Calvin and Hobbes and Family Guy have in their project, and the distinct influence Bill Watterson had on his work.
