How does one navigate the wide array of creative and technical choices facing a visual storyteller when coloring digitally? When does an analogue technique support the work, and when should we just embrace the digital approach?
In this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast, Jerzy and Rob share some of their favorite coloring techniques in a variety of applications. Join them in the second half for an exploration of which tools one might use and why.

Stranger Adventurers for Hire

+Paul Segal put together a Boulder and Fleet title card from that Stranger Things title generator (and as I understand things, it doesn't support ampersands--so thanks, Paul!), and I added our heroes getting chased by monsters.

Spoilers: Boulder and Fleet survive.

When we are immersed in media and also create media - are we ever out of the creating things mindset? On this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast, we’ll be considering what are we using that we find helpful of late, apps, tools, and what sorts of other experiences and media are we immersed in!

I think Jerzy was so excited about the launch he accidentally logged out early. :) Sadly it's going to be too late for me so I'll have to miss it. I need my sleep.

Starting to fill my sketchbook with characters who will populate the next Boulder and Fleet story!
Official Post from Jerzy Drozd: I'm starting to fill my sketchbook with characters to populate the cafe where Boulder and Fleet are headed. Saw some fish in a pond and stopped to capture them, which led to Mary the botanist from Fish Marshes.

Talking about preparing for art challenges on the LIA Cast!

Join us for the live stream Thursday, September 15, at 10pm ET.

How might a 30-day creative challenge help you level-up your work? Do you use it as an opportunity to test new tools or techniques? Is it a way to kickstart a habit? How does the communal aspect of a creative challenge affect your commitment to it?

The 4th quarter of the year is the Season of Creative Challenges. Inktober, NaNoWriMo, 24 Hour Comics Day, and more. In this Lean Into Art Cast we explore how we approach these challenges, what value we’ve derived from them, and perhaps most important of all, how we’ve learned to prepare for them.

Some updates on the next Boulder and Fleet story!
Official Post from Jerzy Drozd: Hey, everyone!I know it's been a while. As some of you know, I've had my head down on some intense deadlines over the last month (and I'm still not out of the woods on them yet). I also went to ground for a bit when my 19-year-old cat Lao passed. He was one of my oldest friends, and the inspiration

Story

Cartoonist and teaching artist.
Introduction
As a cartoonist, I've worked for publishers and self-published my own comics stories. Here's a list of some things I'm known for:


I also work as a freelance illustrator (here's my portfolio). Some of my past clients include:
  • Marvel Comics
  • The Arizona Department of Tourism
  • The Arizona Nutrition Network
  • Wachovia Bank
  • Brain Age games for Nintendo

I'm a teaching artist as well, which is one of my favorite jobs. I teach comics classes and lead presentations on comics year-round in the southeast Michigan area and beyond. Here are some of the places at which I've led classes or presentations:

I co-organize the annual Kids Read Comics Celebration, a free comics event that offers a family-friendly artist alley, drawing demos, and free hands-on workshops for kids and adults.

Lastly, I'm known for creating audio and video shows about comics. I host a weekly show recorded live at the Ann Arbor District Library called Comics Are Great! along with many other shows available on my website.
