Episode 17: How to Work With Art Directors



  • OMG You guys crack me up! I love your podcasts so much. When I get the notice that the podcast has dropped I get so excited. Lol. So much great information. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and knowledge.
    BTW: I agree about the intro music @Will-Terry 😂. It not horrible but it is a tad soft. The first replacement song that popped into my mind is Led Zeppelin Immigrant Song. Granted I've watched/listened to the Thor:Ragnarok movie a LOT this last month 😂. That may be a little too hard. @Lee-White @Jake-Parker just let Will play his bass over the current theme. That should help. =)x



  • @burvantill YES "Immigrant Song" would be a vast improvement!! 😂



  • @Will-Terry I am so with you on the music. It's hideous. Everything else about the podcast is awesome.



  • Was very interesting but I think you run out of time.... It could be great a second part 🙂





  • Hi Jake, in the ep you mentioned that it would be publihed the first week of December.
    But i can't see a post schedule anywhere on the site? Is there a way to know when the next episode will be posted?



  • Hey guys.

    I just put the new episode on but I don't know if it's my docking that's getting messed up or not, I can barely hear Jake. Do you guys have the same problem?



  • @sas I didn’t have any problems. I was listening to it on my phone.



  • @demotlj I shall give it a try on my phone. Thank you! 🙂



  • @jake-parker Why dont you upload your podcasts to youtube too. Might get you more listeners. 🙂



  • @sas Me too, listened to it in my car and I missed 3/4 of what Jake said. His audio was super low for some reason.

    Also yes SVS please do SPACE FARM as a contest!



  • I actually loved the buffer music, until I watched some Better Help videos about mental health, and they use the exact same track. Lol. A new video would start playing, and for a split second I'd get excited to hear you guys, and then I remembered I was starting a video about C-PTSD.

    I have a couple of ideas for topics:

    Actually choosing which art idea to explore. I have no shortage of ideas, all very diverse. But I can't seem to be able to just pick one or two and stick to it. Also, I love several different mediums and styles, and I can't seem to be able to choose which one to settle on for a concept I have. Should I draw that series of images in graphite, ink, digitally, with colored pencils, I'llwith vector shapes, more realistic, or really graphic? Should I paint it? With watercolor or acrylic, or alcohol ink? Too many options makes for a stressed self-learner.

    I would really love to hear from part-time illustrators, especially if they're a stay at home mom, or even better, a homeschooling mom. Those two things are higher on my priority list, but abandoning my dream of making children's books does not sound like the right choice. How can you make the time when you're not going to be the bread winner?



  • @cgordon It's good to hear that more people are having this problem. Too bad you're missing out on so much! Maybe you guys could look into this @Will-Terry, @Jake-Parker and @Lee-White?
