Must all visual artists be public performers?

It was never enough to simply make things and wait for the public to show up and love it, but more and more it seems that creative people need to get out in front to promote their work.

This “performance” aspect can be daunting to many in the creative arts. Illustration, design, and coding are often solitary efforts, attracting the introverted or shy. So what can we learn from artists in more performance-based media about how to get out in front of our work?

On this episode of the +Lean Into Art Cast we're joined by +Lee Cherolis of the +Little Guardians webcomic, and +Samantha Kyle, designer and illustrator. Samantha and Lee are also members of rock band The Shake Ups in Ponyville (http://theshakeups.net/). Together we'll pick apart how things change for a visual artist once they begin thinking of themselves as a performance artist.

Talking about preparing for projects on the LIA Cast!

Creating something to express a narrative can often feel like embarking on a dungeon crawl. You might have a general idea of where you’re headed–maybe you even have a map that some older, wiser person gave you. But it’s not until you’re on the journey that the narrative part of your project begins to take shape. In the dungeon there is little to aid you beyond what you’ve brought, and unknown terrors hide in every shadow. But if you persevere and survive, there’s often some pretty awesome stuff at the end of that dungeon!

So how much do you prepare for these journeys? Are you strategic and tactical, prepared for every eventuality, or do you like to pack light and improvise?

We'll be joined by film maker and writer +Kohl Glass who will help us discover how we might pack better for our narrative project journeys.

Do you chance upon the perfect shot or hunt for it?

+Peter Baker shared a lot of terrific insights on his approach to photography that can be easily applied to any form of visual storytelling. The video version of this discussion is best, but you can also check out the audio podcast by using the link above.

CAG! 109 – Make Comics Like a Photographer, with Peter Baker

March 24, 2015 by  
Filed under CAG Podcast, News, Podcasts

Talking about composition, context, and color on CAG!

Photographers got it easy, right? All they have to do to tell their stories is point their magic box at their subject and hit click. Cartoonists, on the other hand, have to create the reality of their work from scratch. Surely photographers have zero insights to offer cartoonists.

Of course we know that’s a bunch of troll talk. So this time I’ll be joined by photographer and designer Peter Baker. Together we’ll talk about how cartoonists might benefit from looking at how photographers tell stories through their medium.
