LIA Cast 155 - Inking

Talking about inking on the Lean Into Art Cast!


We all know by now that there are no “right” tools for drawing. But how do you begin an investigation into which tools to use? How do you interview the tool for the job you want it to do? On that topic, how do you define the tool’s job description?

Join us for an exploration of various inking tools we have used and continued to use in our illustration and comics work. We’ll hold live demos for as many of the inking tools as time allows.

LIA Cast 154 - A Service-Minded Approach

How do you know for whom you’re making a thing?


Do you establish this at the outset, or is it something you discover in the process of making the thing? Can the intended audience change over the lifespan of making a thing, and if so, how do you adjust to that? Can thinking about serving a specific audience serve as a useful design constraint, or is it a fast track to paralyzing your creativity?

Join Rob and Jerzy for a discussion on how our thinking can change when we think about whom we’re trying to serve as a benchmark for projects, products, advocacy, and networking.
