Make Comics #10 – Inspiration

Show Notes

Josh Flanagan is back with Andy Schmidt to bring you a weekly dose of advice on breaking into and making comics!

“Where do you get your inspiration?”

It’s a question asked of almost all artists, writers, and creators alike, but we take a moment to explore where we have heard inspiration springs from. Some comic writers read poetry, for example. For real. Most important is that where you get your inspiration spurs you to better creations and art.

Running Time: 00:18:18

Andy is the founder of the online comic book school Comics Experience, as well as a former editor at Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing. Josh Flanagan has been working on iFanboy.com, talking, reviewing, and thinking about comics for over a decade, as well as writing and creating some of his own.

If you’re interested in going further, you can check out Comics Experience, where creators can take advantage of their workshops and the community to get feedback from peers and fellow creators, as well as meet people, network and get better at making comics. Also be sure to check out the creator workshops offered!
