AWU Panel Video!

If you were unable to attend Anthro Weekend Utah this year or if you missed the panel I gave, you're in luck! I was able to have it recorded and uploaded to YouTube! In it I share a few tips and insights from my own experience starting a webcomic.

"So you want to be an artist, writer, musician or other content creator. That's great! Except for one problem... You feel like an amateur. It's okay; I've been there. In fact... I'm still there. But over the course of creating my own webcomic I've picked up a few tricks that have made me feel a bit more like I know what I'm doing. I want to share them with you! So stop by for a few remarks from Lark (Ha!) and bring your questions. It's hard to create, but it's better together!"

Includes a Q&A section at the end. Some of the questions from the audience were are a bit difficult to hear, and I didn't always remember to repeat them for the recording, so I included captions for them.

AWU Fun and interesting to watch you in action. You were noticeably nervous, yet you were clear, engaging and lucid throughout; including fielding personal questions in your Q&A. I was especially interested in your comments putting your wife into your strip. I've been fearful of doing any slice-of-life comics because of wanting not to tread on anyone's self-esteem as they recognize themselves in my work.
It was well worthwhile watching your presentation.

@bscruffy: Thank you! Yeah, I was nervous. But I had a great audience. Their enthusiasm and participation helped a lot!

And yes, including material from real life can be tricky. For me, while some story arcs and characters may be inspired by real life experiences, I try to give each a life of its own and let it develop into its own thing.

@Casanova: That's right! (It's an acronym, haha!)
