JAVILAND Episode 3: Making Your Brand

Episode 3, 'MAKING YOUR BRAND', is now available to listen to. You can use the player on the right to access the episode, or go to iTunes and subscribe to JAVILAND and get each new episode downloaded directly to your iTunes library.

The show was recorded live at 6pm this past Sunday. I'm very happy with the way the episode turned out. A sincere thanks to the artists who called in and shared their time and opinions. We basically looked at the idea of 'branding' from a variety of angles, such as why do we create a brand name, can we have multiple brands, what common threads are found in our various works, does one start off creating their brand or is it something that just naturally arises from the work?

Joining in on the calls were the following DIY cartoonist/publishers: Jason Martin of SuperReal Graphics, animator/cartoonist Jim Lujan, cartoonist Ted Seko, cartoonist Kevin Cross and cartoonist/podcaster Jerzy Drozd . One of the reasons we had a really great discussion is because all of us have varied experiences in self-publishing and creating our own brands. It's times like these that make me glad I take the time to do these JAVILAND podcasts! It's like sitting around with a bunch of artists after a convention over a couple of pizzas!
