Release Date: March 27, 2017


Topic: Q and A


Points of Interest:

Thanks for sending in so many great questions this month! John and Lisa are answering the final batch today in the last March Q and A episode:


-Why don’t art degree programs teach more about how to market your skills after graduation?

-Why don’t you believe in right or left brain dominance?

-Can you find out which pencils are lightfast?

-Can you use multiple pencil brands in one piece?

-What do you use to make your work digital: scanner or camera?

-Is it okay to use a non-lightfast pencil if you then use a UV blocking fixative? What about UV-protecting glass?


If you think of a question later, you can always send it in to be featured on a future podcast episode.
