41: Elaine Tipping – Gutter Talk Podcast

There’s nothing we at Making Comics Worldwide like more than when an artist shares their creative process. In fact, that’s really what’s at the heart of these podcasts. So when an artist is willing to give others a backstage pass into their creative process and not just talk about the process but provide pictures of it, too,  we get excited because of how much of a visual educational tool that is for others. Plus, it’s just really cool of the artist to be that open. So when Elaine Tipping, artist and co-creator of Dubious Company and others, sent over the images of her process, we weren’t sure if we could wait long enough to share the podcast and pictures. Join Adam and Marisa as they sit down with Elaine to discuss everything from kotatsu to her current Kickstarter project.
