Join us for a discussion about how do we measure qualities of our work and how does that affect us and our work over time.

LIA Cast 249 - UX Bag of Useful Stuff

Visual storytelling is a big theme with the Lean Into Art podcast. Also: working with what you have as a storyteller to do a myriad of things that go with not just the creative process but also presenting your creative work in a useful and usable way.

Jerzy and Rob talk about useful tools to consider using even if you’re not a User Experience (UX) designer. As we make and share our works we often encounter situations where we wonder if we could have shared it better - especially when that’s not our main focus for making a story, game, or other product.

Join us for an exploration of some handy tools from the world of skills in UX.

LIA Cast 108 - Leaving the Safety of Your Wheelhouse, with Ryan Estrada (Rebroadcast)

Talking about finding new opportunities & improving your work by taking the "not my thing" challenge on the LIA Cast!

I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer! – Leonard "Bones" McCoy

Given all that goes into being a visual storyteller, it's easy (and understandable) to default to our own realms of comfort and expertise to talk ourselves out of trying new things. Especially things that are "not our thing."

But what if trying such things led to new job opportunities or enhanced your visual storytelling abilities?

We're thrilled to be joined once again by Ryan Estrada, who walks us through how hosting game shows, participating in open mics, and running parody Twitter accounts opened up new professional doors for him and added to his storytelling tool kit.
