New Facebook Page

Those of you who follow me on Facebook may be interested to know that I’ve created a new page for my caricature and illustration work. If the above link doesn’t work, just type in Mike “The Art Guy” Leuszler in the FB search jigger and that should bring the page right up.

It appears that my old group is there, too, but you can ignore that.

I hope to see you all “liking” my page.

Adam Talley’s Studio Chatter Podcast (with a Dash of Me)

Studio Chatter Logo

This is a heads up to let you know I barged in on Adam Talley’s Studio Chatter podcast yesterday. Clicking on the link will send you right to the episode. You can also right click and “Save Link As” to download the podcast.

Studio Chatter is about the business and process of creating art, with a sharp focus on comics and such. In this episode host Adam Talley answers listener mail and I step on his lines. Yeesh.

I’m kidding. Adam does a bang up job with the show, which you should check out if you have artistic aspirations. You can also check out the show’s page here to find out more about the show.

The Return of That Stupid Podcast, Now With 100% More Idiocy

That Stupid Podcast, a podcast hosted by moi on Talkshoe at http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/92326 will return Wednesday, May 12 at 10 pm, with a twist.

Instead of me reading and commenting on stupid news stories, I will open the phone lines and the discussion up to the public. You can participate by calling 724-444-7444.

To just listen in and maybe participate in the chat room, go to http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/92326 and hit the non-pro version of the Talkshoe chat room link.

I would recommend, if you have not done so, going to Talkshoe.com to set up a free account the day before. It’s not that hard, but it might take a little time and this isn’t something you want to do at the very last minute. Trust me, the master procrastinator.

That Stupid Podcast ran for four episodes earlier in 2011 and was cancelled when my computer needed to be taken in for repairs and updates. Due to the total apathy of anyone who might have expressed an interest in it during the hiatus, I decided to rethink the concept to make it more interesting. Adding live callers to the mix, with their varied opinions and personalities should definitely provide an entertaining factor to the proceedings.

Hope to see you on Wednesdays at 10 pm Eastern at http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/92326 .

 

How To Sell Article on About.com

I get the daily About.com: Today email/newsletter, assembled by Jen Hubley. Usually, the newsletter has three or four major articles from the About.com website featured that are of topical interest. These articles cover a wide variety of topics, including lifestyle, business, the arts, culture, trends, and news. And there are tons o’ links to other topical content.

I found today’s set of featured articles very appropriate to people who want to follow my lead and sell their artwork for whatever reason.

The top article is titled “Making the Internet and Ecommerce Work For Your Craft Business”. Check it out.

Let me know what you think. And yes, there are a LOT of ads, but the content is free and good.

Why Do You People Bother?

Just to let you know… I don’t deal with anonymous posters. Unless they have a really solid point to make, I just delete ’em. Especially flamers. You know who I’m talking about.

I really don’t mind criticism, as long as it has a point. In fact, I welcome it. Good criticism allows an artist to grow. But if you’re some little Internet troll who only goes around the Internet to insult people, well, you can go away.

So what have we learned? Don’t be an anonymous ass, k?

Thanks!
