    227. Learn ProCreate and Stylized Lettering with Stefan Kunz

    227. Learn ProCreate and Stylized Lettering with Stefan Kunz

    This week’s episode features Switzerland-based lettering expert Stefan Kunz.

    If you’re at all into letters you’ve probably stumbled upon Stefan’s work somewhere on the internet. The dude has over half a million Instagram followers, as well as being spread out across various social media. He creates for big-name brands like Coca-Cola, has built his business to the point of hiring others to help, and also teaches his ways to anyone hoping to learn a bit about lettering.

    Overall, the thing I took away from interviewing Stefan is that he’s very clean. Let me explain… The way he presents his work is professional. His courses and marketing are very thought through. His photos and videos are well edited. He takes the time to polish his methodical approach to this art business world. All of that just makes me think of the word “clean.” Maybe something similar to clean-cut, polished, or smooth.

    After listening to this interview, check out his photos/videos/courses to get a further view of what I mean. Let me know what you think of this week’s episode with Stefan Kunz.

    226. Goal Setting Session + Prepping for the 4th Quarter!

    Today's episode is a sneak peek into how we are starting our 4th quarter planning inside of the Artist Academy Advanced Membership. My intention for releasing this members-only content out onto this public podcast is to:

    Help you set goals and create a plan to work backwards to actually achieve those goals.
    Tease you with what we are doing inside the Academy for our 4th Quarter Success Plan in hopes that you will join us and really start taking your art business seriously during the most profitable time of year.
    I know a lot of current members listen to the podcast, but sometimes miss my weekly videos, so this is a call to those members to jump back into the group to devour this strategizing content for the next few months. Give me your attention and I will make it worth your time!

    Let me know what you think of this week’s sneak peek episode all about goal setting and strategizing for the 4th quarter.

    225. Gallery Representation and Selling $20,000 Originals with James Corwin

    This week’s episode features Montana-based wildlife artist James Corwin.

    If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “It might be kinda cool to own a gallery one day,” then James is your guy to follow. Not only does he own a gallery and sell $20,000 originals, but he’s also located in one of the most beautiful wilderness locations in the states: Hamilton, Montana.

    Nestled next to the mountains, James sells his wildlife art through his gallery as well as being represented by 30 other galleries nationwide.

    He’ll give you some tips on how to go about getting your art into a gallery that fits your style, along with telling his story about how he got to where he is today, and all the little gems in between.

    224. What is an NFT and How Does it Work? with Dionne Woods

    224. What is an NFT and How Does it Work? with Dionne Woods

    This week’s episode of the Artist Academy Podcast is a look at Dionne Woods’ interview with me all about NFTs.

    Dionne has her own membership (she actually inspired me to create the Artist Academy) and podcast, and sometimes she asks me to come on as a guest speaker to share some knowledge about social media, creating viral videos, or in today’s case NFTs.

    Today’s episode was recorded inside her membership group with her members and herself asking me all the crypto questions trying to understand what an NFT is and how it works. These are basic-level explanations for anyone just deciding to possibly dabble in the NFT world.

    I’ll share my beginner experiences, successes, and plans for future NFT possibilities. If you want a deeper dive into the NFT world I have full videos to explain every bit of the creation and selling processes inside the Artist Academy Advanced Membership. If you come away from this thinking, “woah, that’s a lot,” just know we all had the same reaction at first! But I can help you through it if you decide you want even more info.

    By the way… I’m speaking this year at Dionne’s Empowering Creativity Retreat in Branson, Missouri! I’ll be showing her audience how I create my viral videos while painting live on stage. If you would like to join in the fun and learn from Dionne and myself live in person this fall, check out the link in the notes to see what the weekend entails.

    223. Sailing into an Adventurous Art Career with Andrea England

    223. Sailing into an Adventurous Art Career with Andrea England

    I love talking to people who live outside the box and today’s guest definitely fits that description. This week’s episode features watercolorist Andrea England.

    Andrea lives with her husband on an evermoving sailboat, adventuring coast to coast. She combines her love of the water with her art business by creating original watercolor pieces and prints. She also diversifies her income by offering painting/sketching classes on top of everything else.

    I hope this interview inspires you to dig deep into what your true interests are and take action towards them. Andrea is proof that you can make money through art the unconventional way. Even with a number of obstacles in the way such as the lack of wifi because, ya know, she lives on a boat, she’s still making it happen.

    Let me know what you think of this week’s episode with Andrea England.

    222. Nobody Gives a $h!t

    222. Nobody Gives a $h!t

    I’ll let you in on a little secret… Something that puts my mind at ease whenever I’m deciding what to post, what paint, and what direction to go in next. Nobody gives a shit about what you do or don’t do.

    Nobody cares if you paint something completely off the wall that has absolutely nothing to do with your current genre. All that does is show you’re versatile. Nobody cares if you take a break from posting on social media for a week/month. They only notice when you show up.

    Just relax knowing that this art thing isn’t as serious as you sometimes might make it out to be in your head.
    On the flip side… how do you make your audience give a shit about what you’re creating?

    Let’s chat about all the different ways to put the attention onto your art in order to gain more orders, commissions, and make money with your art in this week’s episode of the artist academy podcast.

One of my favorite art podcast

Even though I’m not a mural artist , I still learn some practical tips for my art business while listening to this podcast. Andrea is so upbeat and positive. I always enjoy her interviews as well. This podcast is always a favorite when driving to work in the mornings or taking my afternoon walks. I highly recommend it !

Best art podcast I’ve heard

A lot of good info. The first few episodes are rough with annoying nervous laughter but andrea gets better at hosting with confidence over time.
