In this episode I spend some time on updates and some philosophical thoughts on my worldview as a struggling artist.
I cap off the end with a discussion on increasing our efficiency and how that may even enhance aspects of the quality in our art.

Just a tip on Blender - You could totally use it to do grafitti-type art... but in 3D. Scan in your designs, trace out the parts in curves, extrude and then fool around with the renders. You could get some wicked effects, and render at nice, high resolutions. Sell the print as a high-quality download. Maybe throw in an option for a copy of the .blend file.

Yea nothing like some good ol Kirby for sure!!! I see what you mean when you say your eye's glaze over. I get that too sometimes but it's like an addiction or something. The art however over rendered to me is still amazing many times. I do however tend to feel a lot more inspired though when I go through the old comics from 70's and before!
Nice to get retweeted by Toon Boom. I am a big fan of your animation and can't wait to see more! Last year I was retweeted by Artrage and Manga Studio and saw a slight rise in my followers. The secret is to get those eyes to stay... I don't know the whole answer.. Love the show and the honesty... ArrOOoo!

Yes getting the eyes to stick around that is the trick isnt it! Well being as engaging as possible is one way. Also having a very welcoming site with simple free give aways and calls to action can help as well. What I really need to do is get this newsletter list up and running. That is often a very key aspect to any online biz! Anyways man Thanks so much for listening and I really appreciate the compliments! Lookin forward to your book man! No pressure just keep doing your thing!!! Hope all is well!
