The most helpful podcast I discovered on the net
If you`re a creative storyteller (comics, illustrated books, movies etc.) and if you could use some great tips, a new challenge or more creative freedom in your work, personal projects, or if you are just starting out in this field, then this is the podcast for you!
As someone who doesn`t yet know exactly which path my art and projects will be taking, I find that the Paperwings Podcast asks the right questions and gives the right ideas to think about what you do and why you do it. Chris and Lora not only have a lot of experience in their field (animation/character design, digital art and comics mostly) but also love to share what they`ve learned and they know how to inspire and motivate people to think about their own projects. They do that in an entheusiastic and humorous way that never makes it boring to listen to. They share their advice, their thoughts, tips about books and websites and steps you can take to reach your goals.
I get reinspired and motivated each week, not only by the podcast itself, but also through the great community that is forming around the podcast on the website. The Paperwings show came on the right time for me and all in all I find it to be the best podcast experience on this subject that I`ve come across. Try out an episode and hear for yourself!
Very good show
This is a very good podcast aimed at creatives working in comics and animation mostly, but also helpful for people working in other artistic and creative disciplines as it tackles general as well as field specific issues. Chris and Lora's conversations are useful and funny. Both have experience in their field and they are not afraid to share their knowledge and sometimes their doubts. The way they wrap up every show, point by point, really helps structure the ideas they have tackled. They are also open for feedback and wish to really engage with their audience through the blog. I enjoy listening to their weekly podcast and hope they will continue to share their expertise and perspective on comics, animation and creativity in general.
