Episode 104--Sketchoholics need not be anonymous.

In this week's episode Kieran, Drew, Socar, and Jeremy are joined by Marcin Migdal of the popular art community known as Sketchoholic.com !
We discuss the goals of the website and its surrounding community along with their Sketchozine series of publications.
Marcin tells all about the various projects, contests, and features of this most excellent site and calls all ninjas to action. To have your work potentially published and promoted by Sketchoholic, head on over and share your work!

We also take a couple of listener questions from Max Antonov, and Eve Bolt.

The episode:

GenCon is almost here and panelists Drew Baker, Kieran Yanner, Ralph Horsley, and Jeremy McHugh will be on hand to celebrate the 4 best days in gaming!

We are currently planning to gather after hours at the Hyatt Bar in dowtown Indy. Hope you can join us! The candy red recorder will be on hand to do a little impromptu podcastery, if you care to join in the festivities!

Sheer capitalistic interest requires Jeremy to announce that the first 20 page volume of his favorite Daily Warm-ups will be available at the convention art show. Come and check it out!

I know this is a bit off topic, but
I wanted to give a shout out to Jon Hodgson's amazing videos he's been putting on you tube. They are the best videos on digital illustration technique I have ever seen.

That's because of Jon's extreme awesomeness, Jeremy. We must all bow before it!!!

Come on, Patrick, he's no match for your snout-drawing skills.

I can't believe I forgot to comment on this episode!

A really fun one - the guest was interesting, all the new tech and features at Sketchoholic he's doing sound way too new and complicated for me, but also awesome.

And Socar was adorable as always.

I have to admit I can draw the hell out of a snout. A hitherto untapped talent, but now I'm planning on making it my specialty. I'm updating my portfolio as we speak to include only snout-centric pieces.

Big Time, here I come!

O mighty ninja (that really is the plural as Andy mentioned recently),

I have a question for you, maybe to discuss on a podcast:

You have a schedule filled with the normal stuff - you'll be doing small internal illustrations for the next few weeks, or something like that.

And suddenly a wild client appears - offering you a job that sounds just AMAZING! A well paid cover, a poster, stuff you really enjoy doing. And they need it tomorrow, ideally yesterday.

What do you do? I'm not even suggesting dropping the previously planned work, but...how do you deal with the grief and disappointment?

Or do you go superhuman and somehow paint an awesome cover in a few days, in addition to all the internals?

Saying "no, sorry, too busy atm" is easy to the work you don't really want all that much. But this...
