My intern from the animation studio I work at interviews me about being a storyboard artist, I give advice to a listener in the UK about drawing out of your head, and I have a run in with the FBI.

Ep 76 Canadian Animator Andrew Sharp eh. 2d Traditional Animation Production Pipeline and Holiday fun
Traditional 2d animation artist Andrew Sharp from way up in the Yukon spends some time on the Man vs. Art Podcast talking about artistic influences, animation production pipelines, and home studio set ups!
Man vs. Art Episode 75! Simpsons artist Luis Escobar, Crucial Art Advice, and an Epic Facebook Fail.
Luis is an old friend of mine from my art school days. We both got jobs in the animation business at about the same time in 1994. I went to Walt Disney Feature Animation and Luis got on the Simpsons where he still works today as a storyboard artist. Luis is obsessed with drawing and has developed his own theories about drawing at his new site The Drawing Website www.thedrawingwebsite.com , a place specifically created to help teach people how to draw. Then the next segment of the show is the story of a young artist in search of the answer to the eternal question of every artist. How do I become a better artist? His journey takes him to the ends of the globe where he meets the Old Wiseman of Art Mountain. Finally I wrap the show with a story about a bad experience I recently had on Facebook.
Homage Parody and Pastiche. What gives? Are artists just stealing shit? Plus why Man vs. Art thinks 50 shades of grey blows. Not in the way you think.

The flawed development system.
Developing and pitching ideas for animated TV shows to networks and studios is a tough way to go. I have been going at it for seven years. I’ve managed to sell one property, my short Hero Heights at Nickelodeon. I’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of hours developing other shows and pitching them to all the networks only to be rejected time and time again, usually for silly reasons. Plus all of this development work is done for no pay
