Make Comics #14 – Making Time for Making Comics

Show Notes

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

You’ve got a job. You’ve got school. You’ve got a family, a dog, bills, a lawn that needs mowing. But you’ve also got a drive to make comics. This week we talk about making time to work on those comics and finding a way to put in that time. It works differently for everyone, as the creative process is wont to do. So if you can make time to listen to this, surely there can be a little time left over to work on your masterpiece, right?

Running Time: 00:18:38

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!
