Some inspiration for other cartoonists out there.

Here's a link to a blog by cartoonist Phil McAndrew. CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK.

It's a nice simple insightful post about being a freelance cartoonist "Super Obvious Secrets That I Wish They’d Teach In Art School"
It's a great little piece of inspiration and insight into a fellow cartoonist's working philosophy.

Go read that then get your sketch book out and get drawing!

(also credit to Mike Valiquette for linking it as well where i saw it in the first place. heh)

Cool TAIS event tonight special guests John Porcellino and Matt den Boer

If you are in Toronto tonight, Wed May 4th, i highly recommend checking out this month's TAIS INCUBATOR. Illustrator John Porcellino and animator Matt den Boer will be there to give a short presentation on their new project "the Next Day". It's a graphic novel and online interactive animated documentary "constructed from intimate interviews with survivors of near-fatal suicide attempts."

They'll be talking about their collaborative process and the challenges of animating Procellino's illustrations and creating the interactive animations. It will be a very interesting incubator this month indeed.
(TAIS holds an animation incubator the first wed of each month if you are interested in attending.)

So check it out!
