Hope you’re enjoying the new ACJ – a lot of folks have put in a lot of effort to bring it to you, so please give us some feedback on what we’re doing right, and also what we’re doing wrong!
Just wanted to quickly let you know about a couple of my favourite podcasts, that I both enjoy and have also learned a lot from. While both of these have Patreon accounts, the podcasts are free.
First up is SURVIVING CREATIVITY.
Since the early days of the interwebs Cory Casoni, Brad Guigar, & Scott Kurtz have been creating and publishing content online. Join them every week to discuss art, test new media technologies, talk to other industry professionals, and share some laughs.
They cover a lot of topics, from latest industry discussion to specific convention advice, there’s some great stuff in there, and Brad Guigar’s laughter is almost as infectious as Larry Boxshall’s.
The second podcast is a sister program to the first, called COMIC LAB
It’s tips and tricks and all the joys of cartooning as a pro. So pull up your drawing chair, put on some headphones, and join us while you draw!
This one also features Brad Guigar (and his laughter), but is far more specific, and focuses more on the real nuts and bolts of making comics, particularly webcomics. $5 Patreon backers get a bonus Pro Tips episode each week.
There’s also a dedicated PODCASTS section to the ACJ site you might have missed, which are more geared towards specifically Australian comics and related content, so make sure you check that out too.
That’s it for this week.
Remember that if you have a new local book coming out and want to get the word out, make sure you tell us about it!
