Sometimes freelancing can be like solitary confinement. Big projects, tight deadlines, (and if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, terrible weather) can all keep you locked up in the home studio. To ward off cabin fever I like to listen to a small selection of podcasts, some illustration-related, some business-related and others general interest to stay current with the rest of the world.
Sadly, I haven’t found a technical illustration podcast, but here’s my playlist:
Escape From Illustration Island: The Podcast
In-depth interviews with illustrators, artists’ representatives and art directors. Companion to Escape From Illustration Island, a resource portal and illustration community.
Big Illustration Party Time
A conversational podcast about the ins and outs of freelance illustration and cartooning.
Freelance and Business Related:
The Monocle Weekly
A mix of discussions, interviews and field reports on world events and culture.
