Webcomic Workshop Podcast 81


Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.

This podcast we discuss: Robin wants input on how to name and start up her creative consulting business. Then Dawn looks for input on how to organize and do her Kickstarter. Seems there’s a match made in heaven in this one. Great discussion on running a Kickstarter, if we say so ourselves.

  1. Another fun, informative podcast folks, thank you!

    While I love hearing from all of you, I enjoy what Dawn has to say because she’s a all-ages creator and Robin because she’s loves world-building, two subjects which are right in line with what I’m doing.

    Robin, best of luck on your newest endeavor, it’s gonna be hard to encompass all you would offer. Where you thinking of opening it to non-comic clients? And for comic creators interested in hiring you did you want to include all aspects for comic-making or mainly characters and plots for longform?

    Dawn, best of luck of your Kickstarter! I think one smart move your planning is having plushes and a book. I remember when Jill Thompson had a KS a few years ago for her comic Scary Godmother. I love her work and her comic but the only thing it was for was for a Scary Godmother Doll, so I passed on it. I thought at the time she was really limiting who would back her. (She did get her goal though)

    Chris, congrats on the new job! If you ride a train to work everyday might I offer a suggestion, draw all your comics during the commute. I ride a train into Boston and that’s how I spend the 1 hour trip.

    Thanks again!

    • Hi Rich! Al my current clients are prose folks, actually. Part of the reason I wanted to find a broader, more general term is because I have a pretty wide range of experience that I can offer. Ideally, I’d like to tailor what I offer to what the specific client needs. Whether that’s planning a big project, developing an entire story, building a funding campaign, or revising a script!

  2. I’m going to second “creative consultant” for Robin’s title. One other thing that might help if you’re having trouble putting your services into words is doing case studies of the clients you’ve helped so far. They can talk about where they were before, what working with you was like, and what you’ve done for them. Here’s a good guideline about how to build a case study: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/33282/The-Ultimate-Guide-to-Creating-Compelling-Case-Studies.aspx

    Also, I think Chris is missing a golden opportunity to make a “Capes and Babes: The (Literally) Lost Episodes” collection of strips that fell behind the couch and other places.
