    I didn’t mind it being split in two, but if I had to choose between listening to one interview spread over 2 weeks and a superlong interview followed by another great interview with someone else the next week, I’d choose the latter, definitely.

    I don’t know how other people listen, but I’m usually drawing or colouring or doing something while listening to it and it keeps my brain in a great, inspired place, so the length never bothers me. In fact I’m always a bit disappointed when it ends.

    Loving this podcast. I think it’s good to edit the shows to a 50 or so minute show by splitting them into 2 parts. When the conversation is interesting the time flies by! Thank you so much for this website.

    Hi – What a great surprise! Thank you so much for your IF contest! I love your blog/podcast and am so pleased to share in the community fun. I belong to the illustrators club of washington dc, maryland and virginia, and community is something we need to actively pursue as artists, since we are solitary creatures by nature. i think sites like your’s are the perfect resource, since it requires very little “scheduling” on the visitor’s part – the web allows us to gather at our own pace.

    thanks again –

      You bet, and thank YOU Paul for participating at EFII. I’m glad that it plays a role in your efforts to be a part of the Illustration community as a whole.

    Very interesting podcast! I’ve appreciated it under many aspects, especially when you talked about different approaches to the business and the high value of reinventing ourselves. I’m basically a comic book artist (and long time TI follower), most of my inspirations and motivations come from the “old masters”, they have always a lot to teach to everyone, some of them will never become old-fashioned.
    Thanks and congrats for this website!

    Man, what a treasure trove of insight, advice and inspirado. It never ceases to amaze me the generosity of the growing illustration community – whether it be IllustrationMundo, the efforts of Mr Peng and his ‘Today’s Inspiration site’, the resource riches found here or just the openness in which illustrators are sharing their process on blogs.

    It really is an incredible time to be doing illustration – in all its various styles and directions.

    Keep up the outstanding work Mr James and please have Mr Peng back – 80 minutes was not nearly enough!
