ComicLab Podcast: Commission Accomplished

Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 10:58 AM

EPISODE SUMMARY

This episode of ComicLab is sponsored by Wacom! In this week's show, the ComicLab guys talk about art commissions. What are some best practices — and how can you avoid common mistakes?

EPISODE NOTES

This episode of ComicLab is sponsored by Wacom! In this week's show, the ComicLab guys ponder George R.R. Martin's assertion that writers are either garderers or architects. Also, they talk about commissions. What are some best practices — and how can you avoid common mistakes? Then a question-asker asks how much time Dave and Brad spend trying to get their comics reviewed by comics journalists and websites. Next, can a sale or discount actually act as a dis-incentive for sales? And finally, how can you stop someone from stealing your art for a T-shirt?

BUT FIRST... a real-estate ad by the side of the road written in Sharpie marker gets Dave's attention.
