Do you want to become a comic-book artist, but your job at the grocery store takes up all your free time? You want to write sci-fi but the PTA meetings, kid’s soccer practice and your nagging mother-in-law make you want to pull your hair out? Maybe filmmaking is your goal, but you can barely get off the couch after 10-hour days at your accounting office? (Then you gotta’ walk the dog, take out the trash, mow the lawn…. AAAAAAGGGGHHH!).
Now in its eighth year, the super-cool panel “Full-Time Creative Work on a Part-Time Schedule” puts together all sorts of creative professionals—from artists, to writers, to producers, to bloggers, and website creators—who want to figure out how to start that big-time creative career of their dreams within the constraints of real, everyday jobs and time struggles…Panelists include Topher Davila (art director, GeekdomWear), Sean Glumace (Adobe education leader), Brendan Creecy (Radio BrendoMan podcast), Ron Coleman Ph.D. (molecular geneticist), Stephen Burns (Photoshop digital artist, author , lecturer), Jonelle Davila (creative director, TheGeekGirlProject), Jody Patterson (Photoshop), and Mario Martinez (co-creator, TomatoTV).
It’s often asked, “What side of the table do you want to be on at Comic-Con? Fan or presenter?” For many of us, we’re in the same boat….we want a full-time creative career, and we want to be more than just a fan at the Cons. We want to be part of the action! So maybe—just maybe—having some others along to help us row our boat (or at least encourage us to keep going) makes the trip a bit more doable. Check these guys out! Watch our video below.
