Hey everyone, some of us Fresh Epic's artists have been throwing around the idea of a weekly podcast for a while and it looks like we're finally gonna try it out. The biggest stumbling block really is time, because we're all located in different time zones. But we've worked something out and tomorrow we're finally gonna try to record a short test podcast. That's where you guys come in!

I'll be joining :iconhumon: and :icondetail: in a short 30 minute podcast and we'd like to have viewer questions to discuss. So if you could, ask some questions below (maybe addressing the question to the person you want to ask just to help make things easier to sort) and we'll try to pick a few to talk about in the podcast.

If all goes well, we'll have the podcast up for you all to listen to by the end of the week! Have fun with this and I hope you all give a listen!
  • Listening to: Escapist Podcast
  • Reading: tumblr
  • Watching: Futurama
  • Playing: Super Mario Bros 3D Land
  • Eating: Jaffa Cakes
  • Drinking: English Breakfast Tea

I'd like to know how any of you handle hate mail, or even your thoughts on it. Personally, I think I'd just ignore it. :/

Can't wait for the podcast, though. Never heard one before, so I'm glad to say yours will probably be my first.

Question for TomPreston:

How did you know what you wanted to do with your art?

And for all three of you, what is your ?iggest influence or inspiration behind most of your art? Or, more basically, why did you start drawing in the first place

to all/anyone:
-do you have a certain place, or time of day/week that you do the majority of your art in, or is it just wherever and whenever inspiration strikes? and, if so, where/when is it?
-if you find that you are really "stuck" or have artists block, what are some techniques that you use to get ideas?
-do you think that you are able to tell who a person is or what they are like in real life through their art?

ill be excited to see the podcast :D ill definitely listen in :)

Question for all: How did you get started doing your comics? Did you just decide one day "I'm going to write and draw comics" or did you maybe doodle a few comics for fun and friends suggested you do it?

Question for Tom: Do you have any tips or suggestions for writing a comic series? Say you have the idea, how do you flush that idea out and make a begging, middle, and end and what do you maybe use to help you get ideas?

1. What do you not consider art? When you come across a certain approach, or style, and it just gets your blood boiling?
2. Any heroes you met that failed to meet your expectations? Or exceeded them?
3. Which inspires you quicker? Visual or aural stimuli?
4. What sort of environment do you require, for your work? Absolute peace in a neat space? Or chaos, and interaction with other people?

To all of you: I have a dual screen set-up with one monitor and one TV, both of which have been optimized using the same guide. However, being different brands and whatnot, the two look distinctly different, with the TV having much saturated colours but less vibrant whites.

My question is, if I wanted to edit or touch up pictures on my PC, how could I tell which screen is giving me the 'better' picture to work from, or should I just judge it on a case-by case basis?

As an artist, I know money is very tight, and overseas travel is very, very expensive, how do you manage it?? Did the sale of your books cover the cost?

Seriously? I didn't like any of the songs this years.

We did have one in the preliminaries that I liked, but it obviously wasn't chosen.

If this hasn't been suggested yet, then this might work for everyone on the podcast:

"What was your first paid job as comic artist. Did this job directly lead you to Fresh Epics, or did you have to take a longer route to get where you are now?"

For you and Humon: When you guys did the collaboration book was it difficult to find a theme you all liked? And while each of you worked on your own sections, did you look at one another's to sort of help them blend or work together?

And for Dayvi: What is the most challenging part of managing all of the artists? What is the most rewarding part?
