Webcomic Workshop Podcast #53

Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.

This podcast we discuss:

Chris:  Okay, I have occasionally put REAL people in my comic strip. If you do that on a regular basis and something happens to that person in real life – let’s say something negative happens to that person in real life (a car accident, a death or a very serious illness, etc.), how do you handle that in terms of that person’s character within your strip?

Drezz:  Reeling in commission work – for those of you who offer commissions, what do you do to get people interested and signed up, willing to pay for your work. As its stands, I have a few different outlets I could sell to, but I’m not quite sure how to go about setting up the right pitch for it.

Dawn:  Thinking of offering digital books of 100 comics, either on my site or through iTunes (or both). What are some things that could be added to “”spice up”” a downloadable e-book?

Byron:  READER ISSUE ->  Peter Palmiotti: Here’s a question for your group/show… “If you worked in the same studio (all of you) do you think you would be better at what you do, or just distracted!?”

  1. Good episode and thanks so very much for answering my question!

    Currently I’d love to have others join me in my studio (once or twice a week, scheduled.. not all the time.) don’t know any art (specifically comic folk) in the area, as well as the fact I may move before this years out.
    Regardless I will check into schools or library’s to see if any do exist.

    I worked for Valiant (during the whole Valiant/ Image colab during the 90’s) and left because I lost focus (my fault, became engrossed in what everyone else was up to.)… but in the end I learned far more for being a part of it. Valiant works like no other comic publisher I know, editors, writers, pencilers, colorists and production people all worked in the same office.

    Bob Layton even had random crash courses.
