    EPISODE 163 - ERIC SHANOWER & JAMIE JONES

    EPISODE 163 - ERIC SHANOWER & JAMIE JONES

    Eric and Jamie return after a long time for an engaged conversation about the challenges of running their own publishing imprints and promoting these projects. We dive into the conditions that lead a creator to pursue this path and the important things to consider that have nothing to do with art, but are crucial to success.

    It’s always an enlightening joy to talk with these two thoughtful creators. This is the third time they’ve joined me, and I suspect there will be more to come. I owe them a chance to talk about their favorite classic artists.
    Note: There were some minor audio issues on and off. The discussion is lively, honest, and full of great learnings. Thank you.

    EPISODE 161 - JESSE LONERGAN

    Jesse joins me to talk only about layouts. Just kidding. We dive into the nitty gritty of making comics, why pandas are cooler than skulls, and some high-minded thoughts. Oh yeah, and we talk about layout! Specifically, how they inform his writing and drawing process, especially on projects like his Eisner nominated book, HEDRA. Also, Jesse shares his dream of mastering grids and ratios to create the ideal pages and images. If anyone can do it, he can.
