Great advice, i really love these things. They're like condenced lectures that you dont have to wake up on time for.

Joe Bluhm said...

excellent topic.

I'd love to hear your approach on life drawing soon. You mentioned the psychological difference in using 'crappy' materials - newsprint and charcoal. I'd love to hear more on this.

Great how you seek out other artists to work with.
Would enjoy hearing your thoughts of how you
push your art and find new directions/inspiration.

Hey Stephen, I always love listening to your Artcasts, aside from you and the Animation Podcast it seems there really aren’t any other podcasts devoted to animation (at least from what I have found) so it’s really great to have you putting out your knowledge and experience for us all to listen in.
As for some things that I would love to hear about are: What you usually do/draw to warm up, do you have any routine exercises or topics to get in the drawing groove? What sort of deadlines or pressures are you under when designing characters for shows like Kim Possible? Is the turn around pretty rushed for you to get them out? What your feelings are in general about the cartoon industry right now from the animated shows on Tv to the animated features being produced. Any positive or negative thoughts regarding them or favorites? Any feelings on where you hope television and/or feature animation goes or changes in the future? Ahh alright this blog message is way too long, sorry to fill up all your space but hopefully you'll take an interest to discuss some of these. Also I've personally always found it very inspiring to hear stories from within the studio from experiences on various projects to other artists you've worked or collaborated with. I’m sure there is more but lets leave at that for now!
Thanks Stephen! Your blog never ceases to inspire me!
