ComicLab Ep. 85: A typical day in the studio
Today’s show is sponsored by Wacom! Cartoonists Brad Guigar and Dave Kellett are talkin’ comics. The guys talk about how their drawing styles evolved, and then detail what a typical day in their studios looks like. Next, they talk about strategies for deconstructing a comic in order to learn from it. After that, a question-asker asks if there are times the guys wish they could go back in time to fix things in their comics. Finally, it may seem that promoting a short-form, humor-based comic strip is comparatively easy, but how does one promote a continuous-narrative comic?
BUT FIRST — When Dave pitches an idea to Brad, he can immediately tell Brad hates it.
