what do you listen to while you make art ? Podcasts ? Music ?
I live in Los Angeles and I usually try to draw at a coffee shop while I make my comics. It’s nice to take a walk and see the neighborhood. If it’s noisy, I’ll put in earplugs when I figure out the captions for my comics. I can’t think of sentences if there’s noise or music.
Once I have the captions figured out, I like listening to music - sometimes the same song over and over again, sometimes podcasts. Listening to music helps me to stay focused. It keeps me from switching gears and starting to goof off on Wikipedia or something. Here are a couple good things for your ears:
I could listen to nothing but ELO all day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KvC-m6K9wY
“Criminal” is a fantastic podcast: http://thisiscriminal.com/
“Radiolab” is wonderful: http://www.radiolab.org/
“The Memory Palace” just makes me want to draw and smile: http://thememorypalace.us/
