LIA Cast 268 - When You've Got a Slog

We all know that part of shipping a thing is putting our heads down and doing the work. This can often be a slog. The work seems to happen slowly, and while everyone else is sailing through their projects (or celebrating their completion), you’re still there, turning that crank.

Join Rob and Jerzy for a discussion on how they face periods where they have to keep their heads down and do the work.

LIA Cast 182 - Finding Your Style (rebroadcast)

When you think of art style, what comes to mind? Is it the kinds of lines you use? The color palette? The compositions? Should the style be the creative restriction of a project, or should the project dictate the style? And if the old saying is true: “your style is what you do wrong,” is there any point in striving to find a style?

Join us for a discussion on how we’ve thought about art style throughout our careers and how the constraints of bandwidth, resources, and projects have affected them.

Personal projects can be the hardest to get going. The challenges of navigating whether or not you’re being truthful in the work, employing your craftsmanship to achieve clarity, and finding ways to hold yourself accountable so you can actually ship the thing are just a few of the frictions that can make it so hard. Oh, and how do you find the time to actually do it?

Jerzy is joined this week by cartoonist Zack Giallongo for a discussion on psyching yourself up to start the work and ways to keep yourself on track to finish.
