In this episode we follow a long winding road of daily struggle as I describe some of my monetary and artistic challenges as of late. Eventually we wonder about the effectiveness of being prolific and being less polished when it comes to promotional efforts.
Stay tuned next week for an interview with the often mentioned Ryan Wheaton!

Just listened to 'Escape Artist' podcast episode #18. Another interesting podcast Marshall. I really enjoy your honest thoughts on your art and the art/comic business, your insights and aspirations. One point you touch on was on how much time you should put into creating and self promoting your Art. My feelings on this are simple. Quality over quantity is the way to go in my opinion. I wouldn't worry so much about covering all the bases and consistently trying to crank out new work and product. I believe if one spends more time in creating their best work, this outweighs by far the need to have more of it. The highest quality work available and then promote the shit out of that.
Thanks again Matt for listening! You know what? I really really respect that oppinion about putting out quality work. I think quality is super important and along with that clarity. Clarity in the artwork and in the storytelling I believe should not be compromised.

I thought this episode was called Reducing the Polish (as in the Polish people) at first...

I teach public speaking and I gave your podcast a listen. First I am only reviewing your work to help you improve. Not to break you down.

Dan Thank you sooooo much for taking a listen!!! I really appreciate the critique! Most often people don't let me know what I can improve which obviously doesn't help anyone. A lot of what your saying does seem to be the case if I honestly listen to myself. The snorting thing I definitely wasn't aware of however so thank you for the heads up on that. As far as sounding down well yea... it has kind of been that way lately honestly. It can be really tough to push myself to sound more upbeat even when I am excited. Just kind of the way I've always been. But I do believe I can make improvements and am certainly willing to push towards that. Thanks again for all the advice and I'm definitely going to check out your podcast!
