LIA Cast 146 - Get Data and Insights From Your Journal

What makes self interviewing worthwhile? Can it help to get more data out of the process?

You’re already in the habit of journaling. From time to time you jot down notes, doodles, and capture moments. Whether you journal frequently or once in a while, you’re capturing experiences over time. Over the course of a year, that can add up.

No what do you do when you want to look back upon all that? In this episode of the leaning to our cast we will be exploring how you can go through your notes and capture inexperience inventory which can help with exploring patterns and finding new insights and ways to summarize your journal.

LIA Cast 145 - Printing Your Comics

Talking about troubleshooting your projects on the LIA Cast!

Whatever comics project you’re working on, you’re undoubtedly exploring a multitude of potential formats to deliver your story. If you post it to the web, you have to decide whether the story will only be available on your site or if it will be posted natively on various platforms and social media.

Then there’s print--! Is your story more suited to a magazine-style edition or a perfect-bound collection? Should you print color or black & white? Should you use print-on-demand or offset printing? What’s a good page count and price point?

Join us for a Lean Into Art approach to these questions, where we’ll look at a variety of printing formats and discuss the problems each of them solve as well as the frictions they create.

The downs of making art are numerous. It takes a lot of effort to level up, and it almost always takes more time than you expected. If your self esteem is bound in your artistic identity, there are plenty of opportunities to feel pretty rotten.

We want to end 2015 on a high note, though, so in this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast we're joined by Kasey Van Hise about finding those moments when the work is satisfying, and the unexpected places that satisfaction can be found.

LIA Cast 143 - Rendered vs. Rough

Talking about spit and polish on the LIA cast!

“Production Value” is the most immediately apparent aspect of your visual storytelling project. This “first impression” of your work invites you to think carefully about the visual style you choose. Does the project require a slick, polished look? Or would the ideas be better communicated by a rougher, almost crude style? Should bandwidth constraints be a factor in deciding between a polished and rough style? Should available tools and resources? In this episode of the LIA Cast we’re digging below to see if we can’t find the decisions that determine the surface features.
