This week's ComicLab Podcast!

Thursday, September 20, 2018 - 09:56 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:!

Webcomics wannabes Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar are talking shop! The guys discuss the monthly Patreon dip — what it means and why you shouldn't freak out. THEN Dave talks about why he lays out his longform sci-fi comic the way he does. NEXT, Brad argues that reboots are good — and sometimes necessary, and he and Dave examine the best ways to go about it. FINALLY, Dave shares some helpful guidance for anyone who wants to branch into enamel pins.

BUT FIRST, Brad has one more story from his trip to Michigan... the deer with a red tag an its ear, and a warm story in its heart.

Show notes

  • 00:00 — The red-tag deer
  • 08:36 — "Why does my Patreon drop at the first of the month?"
  • 18:78 — Why does Dave lay out "Drive" the way he does?
