S2.E24 Comic Cooperation

posted in: Series: Life Innovators | 0
Alex and Ray are partners in comics with a solid sense of their creative abilities. Their online comic series Buttersafe comes out twice a week, while they also work on long-form comics with the likes of Namco and Viewster (to name a few). Daily to-do lists differ greatly for these two, so constant and honest feedback is essential to this duo’s success. Listen in as we talk compliment sandwiches, getting critiqued by the internet, and whether or not butter is actually safe. Catch #ComicCooperation
