ComicLab Ep 11 — Patreon rewards that work, writer’s block, and comics awards

Brad Guigar went to the Patreon On Tour conference in NYC, and he brought back tons of useful advice from the crowdfunding giant. Particularly interesting was the data on how to get more backers and make more money. Then, he and co-host Dave Kellett move on to tackle writer’s block! What can you do to kickstart creativity? They share some useable strategies that apply to several situations. Finally — which awards are most valuable for the average webcartoonist? Is it the Eisners? The Harveys? The NCS Division Awards? The Ignatz?
BUT FIRST — Brad’s wife is encouraging him to lose weight, and the reason why has Dave going into a full-on blush.
