Using Instagram to share your works-in-progress

We had a terrific time talking with +Krishna Sadasivam on the Lean Into Art Cast this week about how he uses Instagram to find art inspiration and to share his process with students and fans.

The video has lots of visual examples, but you can download the audio version here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/2990630

Talking about sharing your works-in-progress on the LIA Cast!

Working out in public can take many forms. Much like pumping iron at the beaches people walk by - when you post work in progress drawings to your Tumblr or Twitter accounts people see you putting in effort.
When is that an advantage? When does practicing illustration in public contribute to your training instead getting in the way? Does it ever slow your training down or is it always a power-up?

On this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast Rob and Jerzy explore these questions with +Krishna Sadasivam  Art Instructor and comic creator of the 15+ year running comic PC Weenies (http://pcweenies.com).

You can participate in the discussion by commenting on the Hangouts Event page: https://plus.google.com/events/cr566fttv70occdo26v9id8no5k
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jerzy Drozd. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

That's dirty pool, Rube!

Rube has taken out one of our heroes in the latest episode of Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire. I guess it's now up to Boulder to take on the mineral bandits!

New Draw Fu post

If your constructed drawings, when you tighten them up, look like a bunch of stiff robots, even after starting with a great gesture, here's how to make them look held together and unified:

Use The Rhythm Luke You start all your cartoons with a gesture.  They're well designed. You've learned to draw forms and you're now drawing everything using compound forms. Yet... even though your ...

A teen cartoonist weighs in on origin stories

The Fabulous Secrets show is back! I talked with my student Connor about the necessity of origin stories, how teens find webcomics, and David Lynch films.

Story
Tagline
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.
