Quackcast 323 - A space of your own

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, May 16, 2017


Drawing in public can be a pain! You really need to find somewhere comfortable, with lots of space, good lighting, and the right atmosphere to be able to settle down and work on your drawings… It can be tricky to find just the right posy. But it also depends on the types of materials you use and the atmosphere that you want to experience while you're working. In this Quackcast we talk about Hyena Hell's newspost on the subject and people's comments, as well as our own experiences with trying to draw in public places and the annoyances of public harassment.

Speaking of knowing where to draw, there's the cautionary tale of Canadian Archie artist Gisele Lagace, who was detained and body-searched by US border guards for carrying unfinished drawings! She was intended to finish them at her hotel so she could sell them at the convention, but according to the US border guards and their extremely “strict” interpretation of the regulations due to the current political climate in the US, that constituted “doing work” while on US soil, so she was denied entry and missed out on the convention she was booked to appear at. So there are other considerations to finding the right place to do your drawings!

The music for this week by Gunwallace is for Slaughter at Camp Notamoovi - Dark, suspenseful, mounting dread… it’s dark outside and something horrible is lurking, but it turns out to be a man with no trousers on chasing a raccoon with a pair of pants on its head… who are then both BRUTALLY MURDERED!!!!

I cracked up at the confusion about Toshubi. For those who care Toshubi was his Drunk Duck username and he drew the comic The Blade of Toshubi.

I draw in candlelight whilst watching the movie 'Blue Velvet'. I encourage other to do so as well.

Hahaha! That has to be a very nervous experience!

Oh, yeah. I've once in a while drawn some R to X-rated type comics in public spaces. If possible an out of the way spot with my back to the wall where passers-by can't glance and see it. Paying a lot of attention to what's going on around me so I can cover it up quickly if need be. Not inking the naughty bits until last. Not exactly a relaxing time to draw. ;-)
