LIA Cast 131 - Reflecting on Kids Read Comics

Talking about conventioning, tabling, and teaching on the LIA Cast!

It's been a month of conferences and travel for Rob and Jerzy. Last episode we talked about our experiences at Eyeo, and this past weekend we both participated in the Kids Read Comics convention held at the Ann Arbor District Library.

Join us for a discussion on our experiences at KRC, an exploration of how an event's design addresses its users needs, and how that design in turn affects the culture of the participants.

LIA 129 - The Long Haul of a Side Project

Talking about grit and long-term projects on the LIA Cast!

Rob recently shipped his new iOS game, This Panda Needs You, which he quietly worked on for 2 years. He chronicled the experience on his blog, highlighting how the tools and methods used in completing a long-term project can change mid-stream, and how not talking about the project publicly can be so challenging.

In this episode of the LIA Cast, we use Rob's experiences to have a broad discussion on the challenges in shipping something that takes a long time to build and the care taking required once the thing is released.

LIA Cast 127 - Asking for Help

Talking about finding the help we need on the LIA Cast!

The whole topic of “asking for help” is a force that shapes us as artists. Some things we find comfortable to ask for help, others not so much.

How can you do your art (music, comics, podcast, photography, making video games) and make a living?

Let’s explore barriers to asking, needs for asking, and examples from the last almost 4 years (it’ll be 4 years in August) of Lean Into Art.
