Great Creative Advice from Comicon Creators [video]

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 9.14.02 AM

Great advice can come from anywhere! Don’t be put off the by the fact you probably aren’t a comic book illustrator, unlike the advice-givers in the video above.  After you watch this video I think you’ll draw some parallels (like we did) that will motivate you to keep pushing in whatever creative business endeavor you  choose!!!

It is far from impossible and we are here to give you those tools.

Your first step? Check out this video for some instant motivation.

Video: Grizzly Bear “Gun-Shy”

Grizzly Bear’s latest music video for the track “Gun-Shy,” off of their 2012 release Shields literally makes you want to SHIELD your eyes—but at the same time, you can’t look away. The video, directed by Kris Moyes, mesmerizes as various unidentifiable organisms are seen at the microscopic level. One might even call it “trippy” at times. The beginning scenes depict band members Chris Bear, Edward Droste, Daniel Rossen, and Chris Taylor as they undergo what appear to be several painful medical tests. One scene early on shows one of the members as he gets hair plucked from his scalp while another zeroes in on a syringe entering flesh. Needless to say, I was flinching.

See if you find yourself flinching as much as I did as you watch the video below.
