Thunder Punch Daily 150 – What Tools Should You Use?

September 10, 2013 by  
Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

For the 150th episode I break format and answer an email rather than come in with a formulated essay on comic-making. But I think there’s an essay in there somewhere as I give a report on what tools I use to make comics as of September 2013.

Thunder Punch Daily 149 – Why He-Man has that Mysterious Smile

August 23, 2013 by  
Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

Masters of the UniverseToday I explain my thinking process behind the design of He-Man in that big Masters of the Universe pitch I recently put together, and use it as a modeling exercise to highlight the various elements of communication in character design. If, as Dan Mishkin once said, everything in a comic is unreal, making everything real, then everything you use in your design is an opportunity to express something about your characters, their world, and the story’s worldview.

Thunder Punch Daily 148 – Respecting the Work

February 26, 2013 by  
Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

We often look back on our old work and groan. Why is this? Is it humble to talk our old work down, even when someone is responding to it positively? What changes when we approach our body of work (big or small) with a sense of respect?

TPD is back! I took advantage of Richard Stevens’s visit to the United States (and his recent convention experience at Kids Read Comics) to get his perspective on tabling at a convention for the first time. Together we turn his hard-won knowledge into some useful tips for the first-time exhibitor.

Thunder Punch Daily 146 – Not “Cheating” Again…

February 14, 2012 by  
Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

 

I asked for it! I made a joke about “cheating” at my art, and it got some folks rising to defend or dispute the question of whether or not one can cheat at making comics. I give what can only be described as an affirmation for anyone who has ever been called a “cheater”, and try to explore where this misconception comes from.

Thunder Punch Daily 145 – Thumbs of Terror

January 24, 2012 by  
Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

Today I share some of my experiences in thumbnailing the new Front story I hope to start updating on Sugary Serials in February. I borrow some wisdom from J.M. DeMatteis to help make my points more lucid, but the big idea is that there’s no escape from the terror of thumbnailing a story.

In this extra-sized episode of Thunder Punch Daily I catch up on where I’ve been, how I’ve been playing Don’t Tip the Waiter for the last month, how I’ve tried to fix that with the help of David Seah, and a few new thoughts on using Tumblr and Posterous as a part of your balanced comics publishing.

Thunder Punch Daily 143 – Surprised by Style

November 1, 2011 by  
Filed under Podcasts, Thunder Punch Daily

Today I share some thoughts on how a simple nudge from Kim Holm faced me with an inner demon that I suspect comes out of my history with mainstream comics. I don’t land on an answer to the issue, but I ruminate a bit about what my options are.
