I don’t know about you, but I am completely addicted to podcasts. While I’m working on the computer especially when I’m working on something boring and time consuming like archiving work or color correcting photos I like to listen to podcasts on just about anything: This American Life, Radio Lab, Marc Maron, Best of the left, and many more. Here is a list of podcasts on illustration, the first two are my favorite and the rest will be presented in alphabetical order check them out and see what you like.
My favorite illustration podcast is Escape from Illustration Island. Thomas James, an illustrator from Portland, interviews some of the biggest names in the business including Marshall Arisman, Stephen Heller, Drew Struzan along with art directors and artist agents. With a back catalog of 75 podcasts there is definitely something there that would interest anyone who has an interest in commercial art.
Big Illustration Party Time is another podcast that I really like. These two illustrator/comic book artists talk about anything and everything that has to do with illustration in general and making comic books. They’ll talk all aspects of freelance illustration down to what their favorite pens are to doing contracts with clients and keeping it fun and easy going the whole time. They have just gotten back to podcasting again this year after about a year off, but they have a total of 50 podcast done for you to listen to. Check them out when you get the chance.
