Dan Mishkin and me on the Vault of Midnight Podcast

+Dan Mishkin and I had a terrific time talking about The Warren Commission Report: A Graphic Investigation Into the Kennedy Assassintation with Nick on the Super Skull podcast, recorded at the +Vault OfMidnight comics store in Ann Arbor. Together we discussed why we chose to approach the subject matter in comics form and how we managed to do so.

Talking about walking the line between eerie and cute on CAG!

In this special unscheduled episode of the Comics Are Great! show I'll be joined by +eric orchard, cartoonist behind Maddy Kettle: The Adventure of the Thimblewitch, published by Top Shelf (http://goo.gl/3U0J9z). Maddy Kettle is a plucky young girl who faces witches, vampire bats, and spider goblins, yet never loses hope or refuses help when asked. She is assisted by friendly ballon-riding bears, banjo-playing raccoons, and vampire bats. So is this a creepy story or a light-hearted adventure? Maybe it can be both, thanks to the special affordances that only comics can offer! 

Join us for a discussion on how comics is the perfect medium to blend opposite elements together and produce something new.

You can participate in the discussion via comments on the G+ Hangout event page.

Talking about drawing digitally on the next LIA Cast!

Almost everyone in illustration or comics has heard about Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint at this point. More and more creators are switching to it from other drawing applications, and most seem pretty happy about it. Some artists are even suggesting it as a full replacement for the Adobe Suite (http://goo.gl/6J7Eo7).

But who has time to invest in learning new software, especially if you're not even sure that it is a good replacement for your current workflow?

Join us for an interactive demo and discussion that will introduce you to the basics of Manga Studio. Together we'll highlight 3 key features that MS has handled exceedingly well and changed the way we approach digital illustration.

You can comment during the live stream by commenting on the G+ event page.
