“Ghost Guard” on Kickstarter; “The War of Art”, Artistic Procrastination & Perfectionism • Episode 09

I discuss the new Kickstarter campaign, “Ghost Guard“, as well as my upcoming Kickstarter campaign schedule, including the ancient mysteries patch set, the “Cryptid Command: Series 2” patch set (Chupacabra, Mothman & The Kraken) and the Halloween patch set.

From there I discuss one of my favorite books from the past 5 years, “The War Of Art” by Stephen Pressfield. I dig into my perspective on the possible origins of his concept of “Resistance”, which I feel is rooted in perfectionism and procrastination.

Krampus, Luke Skywalker and the Non-Dual Nature of Bad Guys • Episode 07

In this first episode of the “real” podcast, I discuss the progress on the recent Kickstarter campaign, Cryptid Command, as well as my upcoming Kickstarter campaign schedule, including the still-secret ghost-themed merchandise set with glow-in-the-dark items, the Halloween patch and trading card set, and the paranormal trading card series. As well as the plans for the Cryptid Command: Series 2 (Mothman, Chupacabra and The Kraken) patch set and the Grassman/Skunk Ape/Yowie patch set which will continue the Bigfoot Patrol series with even more hairy hominids.

I also go off on a tangent discussing the non-dual nature of the Santa/Krampus yin/yang relationship and how it all relates to Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.

Cartoon Logos 101: What Is Vector Art? • Episode 03

An in-depth, and hopefully not too boring discussion on what the vector art digital format is, and why it’s important for your cartoon logo to be created as vector art. I discuss the differences between vector art and raster art (also known as bitmap or pixel art).

You will learn why the resolution-independent format of vector art is far more ideal when it comes to logo illustrations.

You can read up further on this topic over at my vector art info and overview page. It also has some images with examples and comparisons of both types of digital art.

This is the third first podcast in my “Cartoon Logos 101 For Clients” podcast series, where I walk you through all aspects of creating a cartoon logo.
