This week's ComicLab podcast!

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 09:44 AM

For the cartoonists and comics lovers among us, I have something new and fun: A weekly podcast called ComicLab, with my friend and fellow cartoonist, Brad Guigar. It's half cartooning shop-talk, half pro tips, and half friendship. WE SQUEEZED IN THREE HALVES.

...have a listen below, or on iTunes, Stitcher, Libsyn, or anywhere podcasts can be heard! Or even on our dedicated Patreon page: Patreon.com/ComicLab!

Cartoonists Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar are talking shop! Brad flew out to Los Angeles to attend PatreCon with his podcastin' pal Dave. Today, they talk about what they thought of the conference in general, what they learned, and most importantly how their approach to Patreon is going to change in the immediate future. BUT FIRST... Brad took delivery of the print run of his new book, and everything went wrong.

This Week's ComicLab Podcast!

Friday, November 16, 2018 - 09:31 AM

For the cartoonists and comics lovers among us, I have something new and fun: A weekly podcast called ComicLab, with my friend and fellow cartoonist, Brad Guigar. It's half cartooning shop-talk, half pro tips, and half friendship. WE SQUEEZED IN THREE HALVES.

...have a listen below, or on iTunes, Stitcher, Libsyn, or anywhere podcasts can be heard! Or even on our dedicated Patreon page: Patreon.com/ComicLab!

Cartoonists Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar are talking shop! When a Patreon backer asks for tips on hustling and networking, Brad gets uncomfortable. Then, the guys struggle to make sense of demographic data. And finally, they help a fellow cartoonist navigate book distribution.

BUT FIRST, Dave asks... if you could see one statistic floating over people's heads, what would it be?

Show notes

  • 13:17 — Game show themes for fun and profit
  • 15:27 — Brad thought Graham Chapman did the Monty Python animations — not Terry Gilliam. He is a dunce.
  • 17:12 — Tips on hustling and networking
  • 34:37 — Understanding demographic information
  • 52:34 — Navigating book distribution
