ComicLab Ep. 49: Under the blanket with Brad
Cartoonists Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar are talking shop! Redbubble has killed off its support for print-on-demand calendars. Should you be doing the same? ALSO, how to prepare for a portfolio review. THEN, building a digital press kit and approaching comics-media outlets. FINALLY, when a cartoonist has 1.1 million Instagram followers and only about 400 Patreon backers, is something amiss?
BUT FIRST, Brad builds a podcasting fort with a heavy blanket to combat the echo in his studio… and it works!
