Valuable information

She has some very creative information. However it is hard to listen to unprofessional language and unnecessary belching moments. It’s hard on headphone listeners.

The content is good if you can get past the drama and stick to the business information. I agree the guests need to be more diverse and mix it up more.

A welcomed change with a bright shiny pace

There’s several podcasts as an illustrator and an art professor that I go to—and this is definitely one of them. Women of Illustration offers a change of pace from other podcasts by offering resourceful life experiences as women for women—-a woman’s perspective in artistic growth is so valuable for other women in the same quest...the emotional subject matter from time to time is real, and hilariously visceral. I appreciate that guests aren’t always “superstars” but how they are each their own unique “shiny star” with their persistence and passion—leading to pay offs step by step. Love it.

One of my favorite podcasts 💓

Been listening to Dina for a while and I love this podcast. Really inspiring me to get more into my illustrations!! I often listen to it from my office job as a graphic designer and it makes me want to become my own boss one day!! It’s full of great resources and advice and has a range of illustrators that are just starting out to ones that have 500K+ followers.

As for the people hating or complaining about her cursing or audio quality... it’s clear that Dina and her guests are just recording and having a conversation as if we’re all a part of it so yes it’s uncensored, real and very funny at times. AND she’s nice enough to be giving us this podcast for free without ads, so I have no complaints. Thanks for the great podcast keep it up :)
