Waiting To Dry is the most entertaining least informative art podcast on Earth. A podcast about art that's way more entertaining than reading an artist bio. Sergio Lopez is an artist who studied at art college, and Joshua Lawyer is self-taught. But both of them have a lot to say about being professional artists. This show isn't about what brushes to use or how to sell your paintings. They talk to artists and each other about what's going on in their lives and try to make each other laugh, and sometimes learn a thing or two in the process.

    Doing It Better Is Better

    Doing It Better Is Better

    Josh and Sergio ramble about the Super Bowl, Sergio gives an update on the gouache course and a sketch box he built, and they discuss a Youtube video they watched about business for artists. They talk about what they got out of the video such as how your personality relates to your natural salesmanship, limiting beliefs around making money, learning pricing from selling merch, and competing with dead artists for market share. We end by discussing how “art means what you want it to mean” is a cop-out.

Amazing insight

One of the best episodes to date. The discussion of embracing your reasoning for making your art and the gallery tips were spot-on.
