This week's ComicLab Podcast!

Thursday, July 12, 2018 - 09:48 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 veterans Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar talk about making comics! A discussion about using an exclamation point in a sound effect leads to a deep dive into the psychology of lettering! THEN, Brad thinks we need to encourage more collaboration. And FINALLY, Dave asks how to overcome a writing challenge — when you know the overall story, but you just can't write the next step!

BUT FIRST: After a former co-worked found a Disney animation desk at a garage sale, Dave find himself obsessed with finding one of his own.
