LIA Cast 126 - Getting Out in Front, with Lee Cherolis and Samantha Kyle (Rebroadcast)

Must all visual artists be public performers?

It was never enough to simply make things and wait for the public to show up and love it, but more and more it seems that creative people need to get out in front to promote their work.

This “performance” aspect can be daunting to many in the creative arts. Illustration, design, and coding are often solitary efforts, attracting the introverted or shy. So what can we learn from artists in more performance-based media about how to get out in front of our work?

On this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast we're joined by Lee Cherolis of the Little Guardians webcomic, and Samantha Kyle, cartoonist, designer, and Valkyrie. Samantha and Lee are also members of rock band The Shake Ups in Ponyville. Together we pick apart how things change for a visual artist once they begin thinking of themselves as a performance artist.

LIA Cast 220 - Mini-Comics Life Cycles

In episode 215 we explored the flexibility and affordances of the mini-comics format. In particular we highlighted how the hand-made, short-run, or custom nature of some mini-comics provides a reading experience that digital formats might have a harder time achieving. But is that premise correct? In distributing our mini-comics in digital format rob the work of some of its appeal? How might we think differently about “translating” the work from one format to another?

Join Jerzy and Rob for another discussion on mini-comics, this time focusing on its life cycle as a digital object.
