I had the distinct pleasure of hanging out and chatting with Brian Duanaway from Comics Coast to Coast last week. Brian did a series of short interviews with different folks from around the web about what their reading in comics. Podcasters, programmers and artists. The latest episode is up in the show blog and of course available in the iTunes Store.
Teaser: There is a fun announcement coming that Brian hints at in the interview…
So, if you’re into comics or podcasts, a consumer or a creator, you should definitely check out Comics Coast to Coast.
You might be asking yourself, “I know Joel draws a comic strip, but what comic strips does he read?” The answer is in the recently updated comic links in the right sidebar. I have a folder in my Chrome browser bar full of comics that I read every day. (Sheldon by Dave Kellett)
No RSS feed? Nope. I prefer to go to the artists website and generate traffic for their ad revenue. Artists usually put a lot of effort into making their sites home for their work. I prefer to observe cartoons in their natural habitat. (Bug by Adam Huber)
Hope you enjoy these artists and their work as much as I do!
I stopped in to see a good friend of mine here in Halifax yesterday. Paton Francis. We were talking art, tech, iPhones, iPads, apps and the like. Then he showed me his YouTube channel where he’s posted some of his stop motion animation reel. He’s getting quite a few hits, but I think he should get more! It’s really great stuff. Check it out!
(Note: Some of the clips are pre-editing and still have rigs visible in the shot.)
While you’re at it, take a spin through Paton’s blog too. Cardboardtreehouse.com Paton was the lead animator and co-director of an animated short called
Little Thunder that’s making some rounds in the Canadian film fest circuit including the Canadian Film Showcase at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
You can find out all about it, and ways to see it on Cardboardtreehouse.
