The super-talented-illustrator-and-all-around-nice-guy Bob Ostrom and his co-host Chris Wilson have re-launched their Creative Independence podcast and have given me the honor of the first interview! I prattled on about my Kickstarter campaign for the Pose Drawing Sparkbook, including what I learned and what I’d do differently next time. Give it a listen. And if you like what I have to say, you can get more info in my upcoming webinar “Kickstarter Tips and Tricks”.
Recently I was interviewed by illustrator Bob Ostrom for his podcast “Creative Independence”. The interview is now available online.
Bob’s not only a good illustrator but a super nice guy who’s very knowledgeable about the freelance biz. Since starting his podcast he’s interviewed a long list of successful freelancers and many of them have some very valuable advice to offer on a variety of topics related to freelancing. The Creative Independence podcast is available both on the CI website and through iTunes. I encourage you to browse the episodes and give some of them a listen.
In my interview we discussed such topics as self-promotion, networking, and social media. I hope some of my ramblings at the very least will be interesting and at the very most will be helpful to anyone trying to build a freelance career.
OK, one is a Top Twelve list and the other is a Top Thirteen list. Still, these are some terrific articles from one of my favorite blogs, FreelanceSwitch.com:
FreelanceSwitch has also started a podcast. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but it looks like its gonna be a good one.
I am so excited! There’s now a podcast devoted solely to animation. So far there are four interviews with animators Andreas Deja and Nick Ranieri, with more to come. This is a professional sounding podcast with meaty content, unlike most of the amateur-sounding podcasts flooding the internet. Very inspiring stuff! http://www.animationpodcast.com/
