We chatted with this Irish born artist from his home in the U.K. and he gave us an ear full. Power confesses to being a bit of a talker (he is). We confess to suffering from the same thing (we do). But what he had to say, especially as it pertained to concept art, was definitely worth hearing.
Also covered are his eight years as a comic book artist, how he once lost his portfolio on a city bus and what's up with that new blog anyways.
