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 Art Instructor and comic creator of the 15+ year running comic PC Weenies (http://pcweenies.com).

Krishna M. Sadasivam (pronounced Sah-DAS-eh-VHAM) is the creator of The PC Weenies. A glutton for knowledge, Krishna earned a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. It was there, in the hallowed bowels of Ferris Hall, that Krishna discovered he was a bonafide computer geek.
After several years in the chip design industry, Krishna made the precipitous decision to leave the engineering world behind and follow his life-long dream of going back to school for a formal education in art. His M.F.A. in Animation is from the Savannah College of Art & Design.Currently, Krishna serves as a full-time instructor within the Media Arts and Animation department at the Art Institute of Tampa. When he’s not busy teaching, he spends a considerable amount of time as a professional cartoonist / illustrator. Some of his prominent clients include TechCrunch, Beatweek Magazine, Hinduism Today, What PC? Magazine (VNUnet), The BENT Magazine (Tau Beta Pi), EE Times, Other World Computing, Microsoft, The Straits Times, Typical Mac User Podcast, World of Beer and CNET.
