Episode 94---Magic Poo!

On this week's episode Kieran, Patrick, Drew, and Jeremy field a listener question from Eggowaffles ( whose art can be found at his deviantart page as well). Our listener asked about setting up at a comic show for the first time.

It made for fun discussion and a brief reference to "magic poo'!

Enjoy!
Apologies for the late posting of this episode, but the editor had himself some paperwork to get caught up on. Tax season!! UGH!

I love the idea of you guys doing something in the vein of of a class, weather it be online or at a con. Here on Prince Edward Island there are a number of Video Game studios and a fairly robust group of serious artists that are also illustrators and comic artists on our own time. I think we would welcome something happening in the north east since not alot of that sort of thing happens close to hear. I know some people have ventured to California to attend similar events, so I am sure that a short fly south wouldn't be a stretch.

Why don't you guys share the cost and do a collaborative Ninja Mountain Sketchbook... It would promote all of you and your podcast at the same time.

I have the exact Mustek model of scanner that you mentioned, I think. It's an ok scanner, BUT! Very poorly supported. If my future brother in-law wasnt a techno-wizard, it wouldent work on anything but windows XP, no idea what version mac, but not likley the newest one. It does a decent scan though..

Hi guys!
Great episode again! I fear our neighbors now think I'm completely crazy cause I was laughing while sitting alone on the balcony... Kieran and his magic poo...

As for the scanner: I know some guys who own the Mustek and like Hathaway said I've heard from them, that it make okay scans but is poorly supported. And I've heard it has serious problems with blues especially gradients. I was advised to buy an used more expensove scanner than buying one of these...at least if you want to scan more than pencils/b&w s. I have the Epson GT-15000 now and I'm quite satisfied with it. Good scans and the scanning surface is as high as the box of it so it should not that difficult to scan even bigger paintings.

Great episode, thanks a lot guys! :)

Patrick said...

Hey, thanks for all the great comments folks! And Shaun - that is a great idea about an NM sketchbook. Not sure if we're organized enough to do it though... ;)

Hey guys! I heard you mention the insulated art storage envelopes and thought I'd drop a link to the video on constructing them.

Hope it helps you guys out some! (It's in two parts)

If you really want to get organized, you can stick page protectors and put inventory info in the slots.

(I just put a piece of tape with the name written in Sharpie, myself!)

I can make about 12 envelopes out of the large rolls which averages out to about $10 or less per envelope (especially if I have paintings smaller than 16x20 to transport).

Good luck with the convention game, all!
