Click to tweet: Be precious about that one thing with Joelle Jones on Comics Manifest

 

You don’t have time to be precious about your work.

 

This is advice that is often given but so hard to apply. It’s probably why creating comics can become such a grueling thing. You sit down to draw and before you know it you’ve drawn, erased, and redrawn the same panel ten times over.

It’s hard to separate yourself from your work while your in it and ‘being precious’ is something that even long time professionals have to keep an eye on.

Today on the podcast, Eisner nominated cartoonist, Joelle Jones stops by to talk all about how she keeps ‘being precious’ in check.

You probably know Joelle’s work from her recent run on Batman with Tom King or her creator owned comic series, Lady Killer.

I was able to sit down with Joelle right before the first issue of her Batman run launched and in this interview not only will we talk about the art of not being precious, but her experience on Batman, the creation of Lady Killer, and what she did to not only get that first gig in comics, but to get the second, third, fourth, fifth…

This is Comics Manifest episode 122 with Joelle Jones, here we go!

Click to tweet: Join comics manifest and bring the thunder

 

Hey Dream Team let’s Bring the Thunder

 

And welcome to a special Friday episode of the podcast.

 

Last week I told you that I’ll be to giving you a larger look at the other half of what I’m doing with Comics Manifest… spoiler warning, it’s making comics.

 

Furthermore, every Friday I’ll be posting episodes that reveal lessons I have learned, tools that I’m playing with, what has been working, what I’ve been making, and everything else that goes into creating comics and growing as a story teller in the comics medium.

 

This week I talk about hitting that creative brick wall.

 

So, I had a bad case of it a month ago. But. the thing that broke me out of it was recalling a summer memory. Today I share with you that moment and the lesson I learned along with it.

 

Comics Manifest episode 120! Bring the Thunder and join me in the rain.

 

Here we go.

Click to tweet: Bruce Blitz on taking things step by step to manifest his dreams into reality

 

Make a list & take things step by step.

 

If you are a 90’s kid like me you probably remember a show that was as excited about drawing as you were and also gave you a step by step guide to make some pretty cool drawings.

 

Cartooning with Blitz is a show that I fondly remember as a kid, because like most of you, I was that kid in the classroom who drew. During that time of my life the thing that I loved doing, besides playing with POGS, was drawing and I felt like this show knew how fun drawing could be.

 

Cartooning with Blitz became a hit, with 4 Emmy nominations, and a world wide audience, with one message, that drawing is fun.

 

On this episode Bruce Blitz joins me for a conversation all about his creative journey, going from professional musician to television cartoonist, and his quest to let everyone in on a little secret, that drawing is fun.
