Show Notes: If you’re wondering about the title for this episode, the Memphis and Southaven area near me are getting some new Whataburger locations, so I thought I’d play off that and discuss what tools and materials I use for producing my art.
I’ll be discussing my early days of airbrushing in malls in the ’80s, literally cutting and pasting art, starting off on working digital, creating early webcomics in the ’90s, working on independent comics, my sculpting experiences, how I got into using markers, and some other ways I like to get the job done.
BTW: If after listening to this episode and still have art questions or have suggestions on what types of tools and materials you use, or would like to come on the show to discuss your techniques and/or just talk toons, please give me a shout. I’m happy to give you any answers I can, or hear about how you create your art.
You can contact me (Lin) at: podcast(at)drawingfunny(dot)com – would love to read your email’s and/or have you on as part of our second season! (Oh, above that’s the first tee I ever painted, and my airbrush station at Southland Mall. More pics of my art, Batcave studio, day jobs, and tools/materials below.)
Stay safe, stay tooned- and please share with others..!
