SketcheeBook, The Creativity Productivity Podcast

I quietly launched the SketcheeBook Podcast . I have the initial bugs ironed out at this point so I'm ready for your feedback. Currently I'm having two episodes up each week. The site's setup allows me to upload a cache that updates automatically. I've been recording episodes in advance and at least have episodes done for a few weeks. The first few episodes are the basics of the creative process and there will be more things covered as we go.

If you're an graphic artist, illustrator, designer or other creative hopefully you'll either be able to get something from it, contribute or both. Send me your creativity tips and I'll mention your name and link in the show. Or better yet, record it yourself and I can have your voice and plug in the show. E-mail or add that e-mail address to Google Talk to send a voicemail. Let me know what you want to hear, what you don't and all of that.

Graphic Artists Guild Handbook

Here's a great book for all of you illustrators, designers and/or artists. Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines. The book is geared toward all visual arts professionals It has sample contracts and invoices for illustrators, designers, digital artwork, graphic design, etc. It has salary information and current industry rates as well. The prose deals with practical and legal advice for working as a professional in the graphic arts field. There's an interesting chapter with step by step processes on handeling an individual illustration/design job. Then we have detailed chapters on each of the specifics for print desginers, web/digital designers, illustrators, cartoonists, animators and surface design (textiles). It's really comprehensive and if you're working in this field, it's worth taking a look at. It's especially valuable if you've ever considered taking on freelance work—full time or in addition to current job.
