Who Goes There?
a paranoia board game I worked on. It was kickstarted and will be delivered in the next month or so.
How does an aspiring artist go about breaking into the Board Game Business? What have you learned along the way? What would you do differently? Did you have any lucky breaks or was it all hard work?
Certifiable Studios
Tell us about Certifiable Studios and your role there.
Are you all digital or does part of the process still reside in the really real world of physical mediums?
I feel like I’ve picked up on 2-3 distinct “styles” in your portoflio. Intentional?
We have talked to a lot of artists recently who have been using iPad Pros but we know that a lot of artists still use Wacom and some who are on the fringe with their own set of digital tools out of the mainstream. What do you use?
What do you love art wise? What makes you go “Wow!” I want to do that….but in my own way!
Birthday and Event Cards
You seem to have a pretty thriving Birthday and Special Events Card business. Is this mostly from word of mouth? Do you market? Is it one of those things that you are really good at but it doesn’t really thrill you like other projects but hey…business!
Vimeo or Youtube? How does an artist decide? Pros / Cons. Both?!
What is Berona’s War?
What got you into sculpting creations, beyond just drawing?
I’ve always wanted to get into sculpture, maquettes etc. but find it daunting. What would you recommend for resources and materials for someone just wanting to dabble / just starting out?
What modeling software do you use? Was it easy to pick up?
Do you print your models in 3D? What do you use?
Further Discussions
I have really been feeling nostalgic for 70s/80s commericalism and activism aimed at my childhood. Time for Timer? Don’t drown your food? Captain Crunch?
The LAST Question… Ever… Like, EVER-ever. (Pay It Forward)
Can you share an artist you are a fan of for our listeners to follow?
Where can we find their work online?
