LIA Cast 209 - Unpacking Your Work for Presentation

At some point you may be asked to describe your creative process, whether it’s at a friendly get together, an informal meeting at work, on a panel at a conference, or in a workshop environment.

Putting words to thinking that sometimes happens silently and abstractly can reveal new dimensions to the work you’re doing. But how do you approach this unpacking? How does the intended audience shape the presentation material? How does your sense of mission inform the material?

Join us for a discussion on how we go about picking apart our work to turn it into material to present to a variety of audiences.

LIA Cast 162 - Preparing for 30-Day Challenges (Rebroadcast)

We’re doing our first re-broadcast episode! Once again we stand at the threshold of a season of creative challenges. Originally aired on September 16, 2016, this episode is all about setting expectations and goals with regard to creative challenges like Inktober.

If you enjoyed this one, we encourage you to check out our episode on preparing for Art Soundoff, which is scheduled to happen right after Inktober!

Special thanks to this week's top 5 Patreon Supporters:

How might a 30-day creative challenge help you level-up your work? Do you use it as an opportunity to test new tools or techniques? Is it a way to kickstart a habit? How does the communal aspect of a creative challenge affect your commitment to it?

The 4th quarter of the year is the Season of Creative Challenges. Inktober, NaNoWriMo, 24 Hour Comics Day, and more. In this Lean Into Art Cast we explore how we approach these challenges, what value we’ve derived from them, and perhaps most important of all, how we’ve learned to prepare for them.

LIA Cast 206 - Prepping for Big Projects, with Ryan Estrada

We all have a sense that big or ongoing projects benefit from a certain amount of preparation. But what kinds of preparation? How do you identify what you need to know, and how to do you find resources to help you know these things? How do research techniques, spreadsheeting, and team building figure in creative endeavors, and how do you balance between these somewhat administrative tasks and the creative part? Can these administrative tasks actually inform the creative part?

Jerzy and Rob are joined by Ryan Estrada for a discussion on the prep and research that goes into making big and complex projects.
