IN THIS EPISODE ::
The future has arrived, for better or worse. Artists and storytellers are facing a fundamental redefinition of their craft, not to mention a fundamental redefinition of themselves.
The industries that have traditionally supported, distributed and promoted those crafts have proved less resilient than we once thought and the audience’s appetite for the traditional incarnations of those crafts has evolved. However, that appetite is not gone nor is it satisfied. It remains insatiable as ever.
But all bets are off. The tools and techniques are changing. There are almost no preexisting models of success. “The box” is now a cloud.
Is this a future of intimidating uncertainty or one of infinite possibility? I believe that it is incumbent upon us, the creators, to decide. It is my opinion that for the artist and the storyteller, the web world is just another blank page. And really, is the blank page so intimidating?
Join me for an inspirational, fear-destroying, artistically-empowering series that I have titled, simply, “Artists and The Web.’
And now, for the first installment, I am honored to present to you the ubiquitous and prolific illustrator Dani Jones along with the clever and ambitious indy animation artist Paul Cageggi.
