This week we talk with Paul Horn, writer/artist of the long-running webcomic Cool Jerk, and Darlene Horn, food blogger for My Burning Kitchen. Together, this couple also produced the illustrated food comic The Girl with the Donut Tattoo. We talk about comics, blogging, self-publishing and selling online, the wonders and pitfalls of San Diego Comic Con, learning to be a “carnival barker” and much more.
At Wizard World Chicago Con 2013, Nerd For A Living presented a Saturday afternoon panel on marketing your brand or product. The panel, “Turning your Art into your Business: How to Market & Sell Online”, was moderated by N4AL’s Wendy Buske and featured social media strategist Kelly Stephenson and Armadian Creative owner Adron Buske.
For our first Nerd for a Living interview, we sit down with Amanda Nuckolls, owner and Chief Executive Gnome of fiber, yarn and craft company GnomeAcres. If you are a crafter, artist, DIYer or small business owner, you’ll definitely want to hear what Amanda has to say.
Get acquainted with your hosts: Wendy Buske and Adron Buske. We explain the purpose of Nerd For A Living – both the website and the podcast – and why we created it. We also do a quick recap of San Diego Comic Con 2013 and share some of the awesome nerdy things we’re currently geeking out about.
Adron sits down with artist and writer, Joshua Hagler, to discuss art, comics, self publishing and the history of his recently collected graphic novel from Markosia, The Boy Who Made Silence.
Several years ago, Adron Buske received the amazing opportunity to interview comics luminary Alan Moore. The bearded british scribe was promoting his then-latest book, the controversial “Lost Girls”. Adron’s radio interview with Moore covers that 3-volume work of “literary erotica” as well as his sequential art classics Watchmen, V for Vendetta and much more.
