Click to Tweet: Chris Grady inspires creators on Comics Manifest



It will surprise you just how nice people actually are.


Chris Grady is a cartoonist and teacher. He is the creator of the webcomic Lunarbaboon and also ran 2 successful Kickstarter campaigns to manifest his books Lunarbaboon volume 1 and Lunarbaboon volume 2 into reality.


Episode Outline


Chris Grady joins us today for a very exciting episode. This one I found very special, we learn about Chris’s project Lunarbaboon. I don’t want to spoil it but it’s a beautiful story and teaches a really important lesson that I’ve been slowly trying to implement into my own life.


Create something that is beneficial/positive/inspiring to you and others will love it. You are not unique.


Chris also dives into the puzzle creators all want to solve… Facebook. Sure, I know some of you say pshh Facebook isn’t my thing. But, there is no doubt that Facebook is the LARGEST social media platform in the world and as a cartoonist who wants to be discovered you’d be crazy not to want to connect with that audience.


Chris shares a few steps that you can take to connect with Facebook on a deeper way.


Lots of inspiration in this one so get ready for an exciting ride with the Lunarbaboon.
