This week, the boys from 3CT are joined by Police Officer and professional animator, Joseph Arnold, to help promote his artistic contribution to the soon to be released fictional graphic novel, The Thin Blue Line. Joe and the guys discuss his personal, professional and artistic experiences and how these all helped shaped his participation in this unique project. We also learn how Joe worked with award winning writer Mike Baron, best known for his acclaimed contributions to Marvel Comics' The Punisher, DC's The Flash and Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars series.
Joe’s artistic talent and his knowledge of police work are extremely useful in visually portraying the experiences of most police officers and the people that we serve. He also explains how our listeners can obtain copies of The Thin Blue Line and help to provide additional support to this largely unprecedented form of community education and entertainment.
Joseph Arnold’s fascination with comic book heroes and their stories began when he was just young man. This allure also awoke a love of drawing that allowed him to creating unique characters, narratives, and worlds full of adventure.
To live his own adventure, Joseph enlisted in the U.S. Army immediately after high school and served on active duty for five years in the 82nd Airborne Infantry. After completing his service, Joseph returned home to obtain a degree in Media Arts and Animation from The Art Institute of Colorado, all while working full-time in service to his community. Joseph Arnold eventually became a law enforcement officer in Northern Colorado, helping those in need whenever possible.
His artistic talents have also allowed Joseph Arnold to work for Disney Create studios, and he continues to provide art and animation for various projects including comic books and games.
