Peter Wilson (00:10):
Hello everyone. Welcome to the third episode of Sunday Spotlight with me, fearless co-Founder, sizzle. Hey, special guest, sky Kevin’s Library. Peter Lane, rider, creator. Am I right there, sir?

Peter Lane (00:25):
Yeah, yeah. Rider, creator, try hard. Fantastic. All of the above.

Peter Wilson (00:31):
<laugh> try <laugh>. All right, man. Let’s fi. Let’s loosen up. Let’s do some quick fire questions here. Favorite color? Yep.

Peter Lane (00:41):
Red.

Peter Wilson (00:44):
What are you reading slash collecting at the moment?

Peter Lane (00:49):
Mainly valiant titles and I’m reading Shine of the Moon by John Lowry and a few other Aussie books.

Peter Wilson (00:56):
Very cool. Are you a summer or a winter man?

Peter Lane (01:01):
Winter

Peter Wilson (01:03):
Day or night?

Peter Lane (01:06):
Nice. Favorite drink? Definitely Night Monster. Monster Gold.

Peter Wilson (01:15):
Monster Gold. Classy. This one up at the teller a bit. Usually it’s just for the artist. Favorite scenarios to write, or least favorite to write?

Peter Lane (01:35):
Favorite scenario to write, or least favorite? Well, it

Peter Wilson (01:38):
Could be type of genre if you prefer type of character.

Peter Lane (01:46):
Well, I haven’t really had a go at writing romance yet, so maybe that would be a bad one to write. Yeah,

Peter Wilson (01:55):
Neither have I <laugh>. Maybe we need to challenge ourselves then.

Peter Lane (02:01):
Yeah,

Peter Wilson (02:01):
Megan? I haven’t

Peter Lane (02:02):
Give it a shot.

Peter Wilson (02:03):
Yeah, I don’t see where romance would fit into any of my comics. Literally called Pose the whole premises don’t hate each other, and the other comic is about a trial. It can be a bonding,

Peter Lane (02:17):
Well, maybe there could be a scenario where they accidentally have a love potion and fall in love or something

Peter Wilson (02:24):
That could get me canceled real quick. Well, I think romance would fit in nicely with Sky. I think there’s definitely potential there though.

Peter Lane (02:38):
Yeah. Yeah. There might be a little bit of romance in the future. You never know.

Peter Wilson (02:42):
That’s the beauty of the premise of your comic man. It can go anywhere. It’s great.

Peter Lane (02:48):
Yeah, thanks. It certainly leaves it open. I can tell almost any story in any genre. So if I get a bit bored, I can do a horror one week or I can do a sci-fi another week or

Peter Wilson (03:03):
That must be pretty liberating.

Peter Lane (03:06):
Yeah, that’s awesome. So sometimes overwhelming, sometimes liberating.

Peter Wilson (03:11):
Yeah. It’s funny how that can happen. Too many options is not always a good thing.

Peter Lane (03:15):
No.

Peter Wilson (03:17):
Alright, let’s dive in. Have you always been a creative guy? Have you always been writing dribbling or?

Peter Lane (03:28):
I think since I was years old, I’ve been fairly creative. That’s when I started reading comic books in life is when I was doing a writer’s call and all that kind of stuff, so I took it more seriously at that point. Okay. Yeah, so I don’t know. I think I’m fairly creative, somewhat.

Peter Wilson (03:55):
W were you the kind of kid that would write weird, short stories in class, that kind of thing? That was very much me.

Peter Lane (04:08):
Yeah, I do bit. That’s cool.

Peter Wilson (04:14):
That seems to be a starting point for a lot of

Peter Lane (04:17):
Creative, so I did have a step artwork.

Peter Wilson (04:19):
That’s cool. Just to explain to the listeners, there is a slight delay with our guest’s visual, his camera, but you should be able to hear him just fine. So if you see him taking a look, it looks like he’s taking an extra long time to ponder. It’s not that

Peter Lane (04:35):
<laugh>.

Peter Wilson (04:41):
Well done. That was time brilliantly. So you’ve touched on it before. What training have you got as a writer? Are you mostly self-taught or?

Peter Lane (04:58):
Well, like I mentioned, I was in a writer’s workshop certificate for that was in the early nineties, and that’s actually where I came up with the idea for Sky originally in the Kevin Library and all that jazz. So ever since that point I kind of got involved in rioting and when I left there I wrote for Empress and Beat Magazine as well. So I did a little bit of interviews with a few celebrities and musicians and stuff. Did a few articles and then I kind of ventured back into comic book. Took me a little while, but I got back into it eventually.

Peter Wilson (05:40):
That’s good. So you kind of written for a really bit of everything. That’s pretty exciting.

Peter Lane (05:47):
Yeah, it was good lot. A lot of varied topics in writing for music magazines and a few music CD reviews, reviews that a few people didn’t like.

Peter Wilson (06:02):
Do you find writing for a lot of different types of things, like you sort of journalism reviews, comics, do they help each other? Is it all good practice?

Peter Lane (06:13):
Oh yeah, it’s all good practice. It’s all writing, it’s all practicing your craft, so it all helps, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, it all helps at the end of the day. Certainly. Yeah,

Peter Wilson (06:26):
That’s certainly what I find between my comic work and my graphic design work. It’s almost like using different parts of the creative brain to get it done. Yeah, they’re both satisfying on different levels I find so that’s interesting. Yeah,

Peter Lane (06:39):
Definitely.

Peter Wilson (06:42):
So if you had to, how would you define a creative person? Would you say there’s a requirement to being a creative person or is it more of a free for all,

Peter Lane (06:53):
Just as long as you have an imagination? I think

Peter Wilson (06:56):
Imagination. Yeah.

Peter Lane (06:57):
Yeah. I mean that’s important. That imagination you won’t get far.

Peter Wilson (07:02):
I think that’s definitely where you have to start.

Peter Lane (07:05):
Yeah, definitely. And I think most people do. It’s not a special ability. I don’t think a lot of people have enough of imagination to kickstart a bit of writing.

Peter Wilson (07:18):
If you meet someone that has zero imagination, I’d be wary of that person because they’re probably a robot.

Peter Lane (07:24):
Yeah, exactly. Exactly.

Peter Wilson (07:26):
Or a sociopath.

Peter Lane (07:29):
Oh yeah.

Peter Wilson (07:32):
So tell me, when you start writing, where do you begin? Have you got journals that are full of just random notes? Do you start with quite a strong structure with your stories? Is it just an idea to jot it down?

Peter Lane (07:47):
Yeah, with say Sky it, it’s mainly an idea. I’ll come up with, have I written a story about a cowboy or a Western or anything? So he could go a book about Western,

Peter Wilson (08:03):
Yeah,

Peter Lane (08:04):
Cool. Meet, say Rick clu or something like that, and go on a little adventure. Other things come to me at the worst of times when I’m meant to be doing other things and I pop into my head like say, yeah, alright, I’m drifting off to sleep. I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that. That’s a big one. You know, flick the light switch off and then, oh, I’ve got an idea, I’m got to get off. But it’s easier as it’s easier when you got your mobile phone or something near your bed, you can just type it in there, then drift back off to sleep.

Peter Wilson (08:39):
Have you ever had that? You thought you’ve had a golden idea and then you wake up the next morning go, oh yeah, let’s dive into this, and it just says something like ladders and it’s completely nonsensical <laugh>,

Peter Lane (08:52):
No ideas before. Yeah, I’ve had ideas before where I’ve written out a couple of pages of this awesome idea that I’ve come back to it in a few weeks time and gone, no, that’s crap.

Peter Wilson (09:06):
Yeah, it is amazing. And the heat of you get so excited. I’ve done that before and written three pages of a premise and then a week later, oh no, that’s actually a Simpsons episode. I haven’t created a thing.

Peter Lane (09:19):
Yeah, yeah. As long as you move a few pieces around and change a few names,

Peter Wilson (09:28):
You can always cherry Stephen King said A good premise is not one idea, it’s two ideas colliding.

Peter Lane (09:35):
Yeah, yeah,

Peter Wilson (09:36):
Exactly. And that’s very true. So you never know where a good story’s going to come from. So who are your writing influences, your inspirations?

Peter Lane (09:50):
Probably Dave Sim, Jim Shooter. Great. James David misk. Yeah, I’ve got a few.

Peter Wilson (10:02):
That’s good. The underground guys. That’s cool. Do you read them pretty often or do you try to save it for when you need a hit of inspiration?

Peter Lane (10:12):
I’m mainly reading. Yeah. Actually, no, I do go back occasionally and read a few older issues and all that. That’s a great thing about comics is back issues. You can go back and absolutely reread some classic stuff. But yeah, no, generally these days, what am I collecting? Mainly Valiant Comics at the moment.

Peter Wilson (10:35):
Yep.

Peter Lane (10:36):
No, it’s not Jim Shooter stuff at the moment, but yeah, I enjoy it. But yeah, that can change from week to week.

Peter Wilson (10:45):
You’ve worked with a lot of different artists during Sky. Do you find your writing style has to change to accommodate different artists?

Peter Lane (10:58):
Well, I generally like to have a chat with them and find out where they’re at and that can sometimes venture into phone calls as well, hearing what they want to do, their side of the story. I’m very open when it comes to stories. I hand them the story and I do, this happens in scene one, this happens in scene two. Describe the background, what they’re talking about, all that kind of jazz. But I still like to keep it somewhat open and that I’ll give them the script and then if they give me an idea and say, what if you do this instead of that, I’ll definitely open to it because nine times out of 10, the idea’s better anyway. So it can always be better. Every idea can be better. So I don’t believe in closing it off and saying, this is the way I want it. It can’t be any other way.

Peter Wilson (11:56):
It feels good to have a kind of back and forth going too.

Peter Lane (11:59):
Yeah, collaboration is a huge thing in comic books, as you know. So it’s got to be a back and forth, otherwise you’re limiting yourself.

Peter Wilson (12:09):
Nothing happens in a vacuum. There’s very few people that can do a perfect comic by themselves without any help.

Peter Lane (12:15):
Yeah, that’s right.

Peter Wilson (12:18):
I’ve lost my notes here.

Peter Lane (12:20):
Even someone like Dave Sim had j Joe Hard in the background doing background. Very

Peter Wilson (12:25):
True. Yeah. Would you say it’s better to be a good writer or an original writer?

Peter Lane (12:35):
I think good. I think it’s better to be a good writer because there’s hardly any original ideas these days anyway.

Peter Wilson (12:43):
Yeah. And it is very frustrating to see an original premise poorly executed. That’s worse than seeing just a bad movie, in my opinion.

Peter Lane (12:51):
Exactly. Like when you get a new creative team for a comic idea that you’ve always loved. Yeah. So say you’ve got Exo Man or War From Valiant it’s a great idea. It’s a barbarian that gets an alien armor from spider aliens, and he’s thrown into a time period where he knows nothing that’s happening and he’s still a barbarian dude living in the current times, but he’s got this alien armor on. People can take that concept and either right at poorly at well, yeah, I know what you mean.

Peter Wilson (13:30):
Very true. I

Peter Lane (13:31):
I’ve seen some bad Exo man of water stories is what I’m saying.

Peter Wilson (13:36):
Well, any comic goes on long enough, eventually you’re going to hit a couple of misses.

Peter Lane (13:46):
Yeah, definitely.

Peter Wilson (13:48):
So in your opinion, what’s the best trait for a rider to have? Is it perseverance? Is it confidence? What would you say?

Peter Lane (13:59):
All of the above. Definitely. Definitely in the Australian scene, I think you need perseverance and confidence. Yes, maybe. Yeah, yeah, a little bit. Yeah. You need at least a little bit of confidence to push your idea out there. Do things like this, get up and it’s

Peter Wilson (14:18):
A big

Peter Lane (14:18):
Yeah, and tell people.

Peter Wilson (14:21):
Yeah, yeah, true. That might be the biggest step for a lot of indie creators. To take it from ideas in your head to really go out network, show it off, and it’s a hard one to make. It’s not always easy, especially if you’ve created, then you go back and look at your old stuff. It can be hard, but you know, push, do it. You just do it, don’t you?

Peter Lane (14:42):
Yep. Keep pushing.

Peter Wilson (14:44):
That’s

Peter Lane (14:45):
It. Because at the end of the day, you’re kind of doing it for yourself, aren’t you? Everyone else is just a bonus.

Peter Wilson (14:51):
That’s right. That’s true. You’ve been writing Sky for a while, you mentioned it before. How’s your writing process changed way back in the nineties till now? Have you refined it a lot more? Is it much the same or,

Peter Lane (15:07):
Oh yeah, but back in the nineties I was wasn’t the greatest when I was starting off. Admittedly no one, I don’t think anyone is. No, you’re full of confidence back then. You think, oh yeah, we’ve got some brilliant ideas, blah, blah. You look at it 20 years later and you’re like a little off. I can probably reflect that. I’ve actually written up timeline now which I think is a lot better than what something that I’d written back then could have ever been, which is good life experience, all that kind of jazz, but also collaborating with artists. Even now, collaborating with Jason Polos, he was completely upfront with me and what he didn’t like and what he liked, and I really appreciated that. Sometimes you do need someone to give you a hard

Peter Wilson (16:02):
Oh,

Peter Lane (16:02):
For sure, for it. Hard work, hard conversation, and let you know exactly where you’re going and where you’re going wrong. I think it all helps. And once your ego gets a little bit bruised or whatever, you kind of brush it off and then go, you know what? I think he was right about that. And the story becomes better once,

Peter Wilson (16:24):
Well, definitely once you reframe criticism as constructive in your head, you can only go up.

Peter Lane (16:30):
Yeah, exactly.

Peter Wilson (16:31):
And it’s really important to learn how to hear criticism and how to give criticism as well.

Peter Lane (16:37):
Most definitely. Yeah, most definitely.

Peter Wilson (16:38):
Absolutely. Vital. And Jason POIs has been in the biz for how long? One of our most revered comic artists. Exactly. If he gives you criticism, you’re only going to get better by listening to him.

Peter Lane (16:48):
Exactly. Every time. Every time. He would give me a bit of advice, you know, just remind yourself exactly what you said. He’s been doing this for who knows how long, decades, and he knows what he’s talking about. He knows what he’s doing. So

Peter Wilson (17:07):
That’s it, man.

Peter Lane (17:08):
That’s worth it to have a listen.

Peter Wilson (17:12):
So tell me about your workspace. So what, you got a little office there, do you work up a little desk on your lap? Do you break into people’s homes? How do you get into the

Peter Lane (17:23):
Oh yeah, no, I definitely break into people’s homes and steal their beer. Sit on the couch and kick back. No. Yeah, no, I just stick the laptop on my knees, which is probably bad. And just go from there. <laugh>

Peter Wilson (17:41):
Anywhere, anytime you can just jump in. That’s cool.

Peter Lane (17:43):
Yeah, or the iPad as well. Sometimes I pull out the iPad, especially like I said, when I’m drifting off to bed, I’ll come up with an idea and pull the iPad out and stop plugging away.

Peter Wilson (17:56):
So the next question is tools of the trade. So you seem to work mostly digital on your, you’ve mentioned your phone before and your tablet. That’s what you mostly write on.

Peter Lane (18:05):
Yeah. It used to be years ago, as you said, I started this whole thing in the late nineties. So yeah, back then it would always be a notepad with a pen, and I’d have to walk around with that all the time. But now, modern age, pull out the mobile phone, little notepad, bang off, you go off to the races.

Peter Wilson (18:26):
And what does a writing session look like for you? Do you have scheduled times in the day? Is it whenever it hits you, whenever you have free time?

Peter Lane (18:37):
Whenever I, yeah, exactly. Those last two. Whenever I have free time and like I said, inspiration can hit any time during the day. There’s no specific time. I can’t mark it off in my calendar. So yeah, whenever it hits

Peter Wilson (18:53):
<laugh>, there definitely seems to be two types of creators, the ones who need a set time and place, and when they’re in that time and place, they’re in the zone. And others, it’s a complete free frauds. I’ll write till 3:00 AM whatever I’ll write during work. It’s really interesting to get into.

Peter Lane (19:10):
Yeah, yeah. I mean, the world would be boring if we’re all the same.

Peter Wilson (19:15):
It made my job easier. Copy paste, <laugh>, see you next week. But I wouldn’t watch it. So we did touch on this as well, but where do you find most of your ideas come to you? Is it when you’re nodding off or in the shower or

Peter Lane (19:35):
Anywhere? It can be anywhere, like drifting off, sitting in front of the tv. Sometimes I’ll be sitting watching a movie in the cinema and then, oh, I’ve got an idea. Toilet break. Yeah, could be anywhere.

Peter Wilson (19:48):
Cool. How do you find your characters’ voices when you’re writing? They’re very distinctive when I’m reading them. They really do feel like well-rounded characters. I can hear them in my head very clearly. Have you faced off anyone or

Peter Lane (20:04):
Oh yeah.

Peter Wilson (20:04):
Reading it back to yourself until you sort of hit it, or,

Peter Lane (20:08):
I think we all have life experiences as we’re going along and everyone we meet and we might get some ideas off. We’ve got characters in our day-to-day life and true inevitably, you’re going to have some of those characters jump onto the page and then jump back off the page.

Peter Wilson (20:29):
Well, it’s the one I work in customer service as sort of my day job, and at the very least it is good for cust character. Thought you do come up with a lot.

Peter Lane (20:40):
Yeah,

Peter Wilson (20:43):
You get really excited character.

Peter Lane (20:48):
I used to work at a well-know porn shop, P A W N, by the way. Yeah, well known one around the Knox area. You could probably put two and two together starts with C and I’ve got a lot of interest and characters in there.

Peter Wilson (21:14):
I bet you did my good. Yeah. So as a writer, are there any bad habits that you’ve overcome and how did you do so?

Peter Lane (21:27):
Sleep. That’s a bad habit. I can’t get

Peter Wilson (21:32):
Too much, or not enough.

Peter Lane (21:36):
Not really. I can’t think of any bad habits. I think it’s a learning experience.

Peter Wilson (21:45):
What about Rider’s Block?

Peter Lane (21:48):
Yes. Yes. So occasionally I think everyone will get Rider’s block, being a writer

Peter Wilson (21:53):
Usually a sign. You just need to relax.

Peter Lane (21:57):
I mean, I’ve gone for quite a while without getting an idea before, but then I find an avalanche. They’ll all come to me all at once. So I’ll be riding a whole bunch all at once. Yeah, break. But lately I’ve found, I dunno, for whatever reason, I’ve been getting a ton. Just consistently. So yeah, that’s always a good thing.

Peter Wilson (22:21):
Yeah. So do you have someone, a significant author or a writing partner that helps you bounce ideas off or edits your work for you or?

Peter Lane (22:34):
I mainly I yes, actually I do. My wife edits my work because she’s actually a professional editor herself. Great. So that’s handy. And she’ll also tell me where ideas might not be so great and I might want to change some things, which as a writer, you should always be open to.

Peter Wilson (22:59):
Definitely, yeah. Yeah. My partner does the same for me because she’s not a comic reader

Peter Lane (23:05):
And

Peter Wilson (23:05):
She’s more literate than me. So best of both words, if the comic makes sense to hurt or make sense to anyone.

Peter Lane (23:11):
Exactly. Yeah, that’s a very similar situation with me. She’s not a comic fan at all.

Peter Wilson (23:17):
It helps. Yeah, makes

Peter Lane (23:18):
Sense. Helps a lot.

Peter Wilson (23:23):
So when you’re about to write, you seem like a pretty spontaneous kind of creator. Do you have any little rituals or habits that you like to do while you’re riding

Peter Lane (23:36):
Rituals?

Peter Wilson (23:37):
You sometimes your sun riders have to have a, Stephen King has a unli cigarette on his ashtray that he never touches. He just has to have it next to him.

Peter Lane (23:47):
I don’t have any rituals per se. Maybe a few Satanic rituals, but that’s about it.

Sizzle (23:52):
<laugh>

Peter Wilson (23:55):
All cured a goat for inspiration people. Let’s try and keep it interesting. Do you work on just one issue at a time when you’re writing or is it you have a few scripts going at any given time?

Peter Lane (24:10):
Oh no, generally I have about three or four going at once, especially as you said, because I work with a lot of different artists. I like to have a few different things going at once but at the same time, I like to maintain a continuity there of course. So yeah, sure, fingers crossed it all works in the end, but having an editor again will definitely help with that. Continuity aspects and all that. Chaz,

Peter Wilson (24:41):
I’ve lost my place. That’s cool though. It’s good to know. So when you edit, how long do you spend on that? Do you spend just as long as you spend writing the script or?

Peter Lane (24:53):
Yeah, yeah. About the same length of time. It’s mainly Sarah that does the editing, but I do spend a little bit of time as well overlooking it before I hand it off. Yeah, probably the same amount of time. I’d say.

Peter Wilson (25:13):
Talking with Jason Pauls before and criticism, what’s the best bit of criticism or encouragement you’ve ever gotten?

Peter Lane (25:22):
Well, best bit of encouragement I’ve gotten has just been from customers that have read the book. They’ve sent me messages and told me that they’re enjoying it and that’s all I really can really ask for. You know what I mean? As long as they enjoy it, I’m happy. Like I said, I’m mainly writing it for myself anyway. And if they enjoy it as well, then

Peter Wilson (25:45):
It’s a great,

Peter Lane (25:48):
Yeah,

Peter Wilson (25:49):
If anyone’s watching you hasn’t read it, buy a copy. Do yourself a favor.

Peter Lane (25:54):
Thanks man. Yeah.

Peter Wilson (25:58):
Do we stock it?

Peter Lane (26:00):
Sorry, what was that?

Peter Wilson (26:01):
Do we stock it at the com store?

Sizzle (26:04):
We

Peter Wilson (26:04):
Have two issues left there. Go straight there. Now

Peter Lane (26:08):
Sold out of the Jason Paul’s cover, but we have or that, or Sizzle has more of cover B in the store, like you said, two copies. So yeah, still available.

Peter Wilson (26:23):
And I was like

Peter Lane (26:24):
Criticism, I’m sorry,

Peter Wilson (26:28):
<laugh>.

Peter Lane (26:29):
Sorry,

Peter Wilson (26:30):
Vivian Sky Crossover cover or a Variant. That was a lot of fun.

Peter Lane (26:36):
Yeah. Yeah, looks really good.

Peter Wilson (26:38):
I had good fun drawing. It’s really character. I’ve joined Vivian a number of times. I had good practice with him.

Peter Lane (26:44):
Thanks man. Yeah, no, I really like it. It’s an awesome cover.

Peter Wilson (26:48):
Thank you.

Peter Lane (26:51):
It was a nice surprise to get in my little inbox.

Peter Wilson (26:55):
I’m glad you don’t want to hear the other one. Oh, you sent me some night. Okay, that’s great.

Peter Lane (27:03):
No, I like 99.9% of the time. I love what Artis sent me, so yeah, it’s a really nice surprise. That’s good.

Peter Wilson (27:13):
So do you have a day job that helps fund your creative side or are you lucky enough to be doing this sort of thing all the time?

Peter Lane (27:20):
Well, I’m a multimillionaire and living in my no <laugh>

Peter Wilson (27:24):
Afterwards. Cool.

Peter Lane (27:27):
Yeah, no, I’ve got a day-to-day job. It’s a general kind of admin, which I’ve been doing for about 16 years. Yeah. Oh wow. You

Peter Wilson (27:37):
Find that sort of thing. I find it helps me cause I can switch off the creative side, do something else as just gives that side of my brain a rest when I real, because that part works of me, works overtime. Does it work the same for you or are you there just resenting the hell out of it the whole time?

Peter Lane (27:57):
That’s fine. Like yourself.

Peter Wilson (27:58):
Unless your coworkers are watching Wink. If you do resent it, but can’t say

Peter Lane (28:05):
I love where I work. It’s a lovely place. Yeah.

Sizzle (28:10):
Anyway,

Peter Wilson (28:11):
We all saw it. So this is a loaded question, but how far is Sky going to go? How many issues can we hope to see?

Peter Lane (28:25):
I’m hoping for 25, but if it reaches 50, that’ll be great.

Peter Wilson (28:29):
That’d be great for everyone. Nice.

Peter Lane (28:33):
But we’ll see. I don’t want to make any promises because who knows what’s going to happen in. Well

Peter Wilson (28:39):
That’s true

Peter Lane (28:39):
Years time, but the aim at the moment is 25 issues.

Sizzle (28:45):
Nice. Target, who

Peter Wilson (28:47):
A dream person to work with?

Sizzle (28:50):
<laugh>.

Peter Wilson (28:51):
Who’d be the dream artist?

Peter Lane (28:55):
Dream artist? Ooh, Arthur Adams.

Peter Wilson (28:58):
Ooh, good choice.

Peter Lane (29:02):
