The MakingComics.com crew is joined by artists from around the globe to explore the nuances of comic-making.
119: Palle Schmidt (#2) MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast
The Making Comics Gutter Talk podcast goes international. Again. In this episode, Adam is joined by Denmark's own, Palle Schmidt. If that name sounds familiar to you, it's at least one of two things. Either you have heard the previous Gutter Talk episodes Palle was on, as well as the Comic Con panel back in 2014 moderated by Patrick Yurick, or it's the amazing work he's done in Thomas Alsop or Comics for Beginners, a site dedicated to educating those with the dream of creating comics.
In this episode, Adam and Palle discuss a wide range of topics. Whether it's the inside scoop on Palle's techniques as an artist or the various ways and differences artists are treated and respected between Denmark and the United States. They even touch on taxes. Taxes! We know, what do taxes have to do with comics? Well, directly, not much. But in the overall grand scheme of things, no one can escape them. Even underpaid artists.
Make sure you give the Gutter Talk podcast a rating and review on iTunes and check out the MakingComics.com site for all your comic creating needs.

118: Graham Annable (#2) MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast
For many folks, our esteemed Making Comics Gutter Talk host included, winter is a difficult time of year. Time changes, cold weather, having to constantly correct yourself on the year because it changed and it's hard to get in the new habit of writing the new year. We get it. But Spring is about to... well, spring, and it's time to wake up the sleeping beast that is this podcast. And what better way to rub the sleep out of our eyes than with one of the podcast's favorite past guests.
In this first episode of 2019, which was admittedly recorded in 2018, Adam is joined by writer, artist, director, and overall swell guy, Graham Annable. If the name sounds familiar, it could be because he was a guest on the podcast a few years back. However, there's a pretty sizable chance you know the name from his wonderful work, such as the Laika production, The Boxtrolls, which he co-directed. It could also be from the hilarious and sometimes poignant sketches and comics, Grickle. Or maybe it's from his more recent graphic novels, Peter & Ernesto, in which he is both artist and writer. And as you'll see, most recently, part-time editor.

With Gutter Talk’s mid-season intermission behind us, Adam Greenfield is back at it with another incredible interview - this time with Eisner Award Nominated writer and publisher Norm Harper! This week’s episode is filled with engaging conversation surrounding Norm’s breakout comic, Rikki, and what it means to take an old, well-known tale and spin it with a fresh, comic-style twist! Adam and Norm’s conversation also finds itself exploring the ideas behind belonging to a clan and finding oneself, walking between film and comics, jumping into the world of indie comics, fighting off imposter syndrome, and starting an incredible publishing company!
[Recast] Graham Annable Book Club! – MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast
Though our Season 1 Intermission might have arrived, that doesn't mean anybody around here gets to rest - and that means you! That's right, while we scurry about, finishing up the last couple of interviews and other such surprises, we've got some homework for you. But don't worry, it's nothing too difficult. In order to make sure you're prepared for our super secret upcoming book club episode, we decided to re-release one of our most popular episodes from the past - the Graham Annable interview - just in case you missed it last time!
4: Patrick Yurick (#ComicFuel 7) – MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast (S01E04) (115)
How in the world could we do our first season of the MakingComics.com Gutter Talk Podcast without bringing back the #ComicFuel podcast? The #ComicFuel podcast was launched as a question/answer show by our leader Patrick Yurick for the massively popular “How To Make A Comic Book” course on Coursera. Students from around the world submit questions and the seemingly endless fountain of facts bubbling inside of the brain of Patrick does its best to link them with the answers needed. On this seventh installment of #ComicFuel we cover questions like “Am I too old to make a living off of comics?”, “How do you manage a long-form comic project?”, “How do you learn to draw?”, and several more. So pop on your headphones, get out a paper and pen, and draw while listening to Patrick traverse the world answering comic-making quandaries.
Great show! 🎶“Random bits of Knowledge with Patrick!” 🎵
A Great Comic Resource
I have been listening to this podcast for a couple years now and always enjoy having it on while I'm working on my projects. I find it to be entertaining and educational. I also frequent the MakingComics website to pick up tricks and tips on creating comics.
Great podcast. Love listening to other artists stories and what they are up to. Can't wait for each episode.
