Talking Toons And Drawing Funny! "Drawing Funny" Is A Mid-South Cartoonists Association/MSCA Podcast Hosted By Lin Workman.

    Episode 31 - "What A Tool(s)"

    Episode 31 - "What A Tool(s)"

    Show Notes: If you're wondering about the title for this episode, the Memphis and Southaven area near me are getting some new Whataburger locations, so I thought I'd play off that and discuss what tools and materials I use for producing my art. I'll be discussing my early days of airbrushing in malls in the '80s, literally cutting and pasting art, starting off on working digital, creating early webcomics in the '90s, my sculpting experiences, how I got into using markers, and some other ways I like to get the job done. Plus I send out some congrats to fellow podperson Joe Stuber for Comic Book Central's 400th episode/8th anniversary, and give you some info on former guest Sal Abbinanti's new Kickstarter campaign for his "Atomika" omnibus.

    BTW: If after listening to this episode and still have art questions or have suggestions on what types of tools and materials you use, or would like to come on the show to discuss your techniques and/or just talk toons, please give me a shout. I'm happy to give you any answers I can, or hear about how you create your art. You can contact me (Lin) at: podcast(at)drawingfunny(dot)com - would love to read your email's and/or have you on as part of our second season!

    Episode 30 - "MSCA News Flash"

    Show Notes: I started off working on one episode, but once I added the MSCA news elements it became a bit longer than I wanted, so I decided to do a shorter one just focusing on current and upcoming events here. In this episode I've got info on murals, meetings, plays, art shows, appearances, anniversaries, and more happening around the M-town...as well as Nicki and me playing tourists close to home for my birthday. (BTW- I share a birthday with Cookie Monster- happy birthday, Cookie!) For more info, links, and pics please check out the MSCA website at www.midsouthcartoonists.org. You can contact me (Lin) at: podcast(at)drawingfunny(dot)com, and would love to have you as part of our second season of "Drawing Funny". Hope you had a Happy Halloween and Day of the Dead. Stay safe, stay focused- and I'll talk toons with again you soon..!

    Episode 29 – “Strange And Unusual”

    Episode 29 – “Strange And Unusual”

    Show Notes: This episode is our 1 year anniversary show, and man what a strange trip and unusual year the first season has been- pandemic, snowpocalypse, layoffs, new job, new equipment, learning curves, and lots of comic conversations! For the first episode of our second season I share some MSCA member news, what art projects I've been working on recently, some of the podcasts I listen to, and my thoughts on self-publishing and some of the comics industry publisher news I've heard about on the interwebs. Lots of "The Ghost With The Most" on this episode in celebration of mine and Nicki's 10th wedding anniversary this month. I proposed to Nicki at the Phoenix Comic Con's art show way back when I was emceeing their art show as Beetlejuice...and she said, "Yes."...well, technically she shook her head but that counts- I had witnesses! BTW: If you'd like to be a part of the show or have your comics project, event, or podcast featured on a future episode please give me a yell. You can contact me at: podcast(at)drawingfunny(dot)com - would love to have you on as part of our second season! Stay safe, stay tooned- and please share with others..!

    Episode 28 - "Play It Forward"

    Episode 28 - "Play It Forward"

    Show Notes: This episode is about "paying it forward" and some of the posts I recently ran across in the "I CREATE COMIC BOOKS" Facebook group and my responses to them. I've gotten a lot of help from others over the years, and I hope that this podcast helps anyone wanting to learn more about creating comics, and the business of promoting them. I also talk a bit about what I've been up to art-wise (mostly drawing  sketchcards), and touch on some of my art-anxiety, drawing-depression, professional-jealousy, and impostor-syndrome experiences.

    Stay safe, stay tooned- and please share with others..!

    Episode 26 - "John Ostrander"

    Show Notes: This episode Nicki and I catch up with one of our favorite writers, and humans- John Ostrander. We met "Uncle John" several years back at MidSouthCon and immediately became friends. He's a legendary comics creator who's worked for Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, Image, Valiant, as well as First Comics- which was his first comics gig. He's been a playwright, director, actor- and almost a priest..! Just before Covid struck he filmed a cameo scene as Dr. Fitzgibbon for the upcoming "The Suicide Squad" movie by James Gunn, which will be released in theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021.
