Jake Jorgovan – blogger, designer, marketing expert, and the host of the Working Without Pants podcast – joins Bryce Bladon for a webinar to discuss how he finds new clients and project leads as a designer.

His client-finding technique isn’t an easy “get rich quick” scheme, but it did net him $20k his first year of using it. And those are sales just from this– it’s not including Jake’s other work and referrals.

“How do I find clients?”

Experienced or new, full-time or free-time, this is simple and actionable advice for anyone, at any stage of their career. 

UPDATE: Shortly after our discussion, Jake launched Outbound Creative, a service that offers to do the work discussed in this webinar for you.

Mortified is a really cute and funny podcast where people read straight from the diaries they kept as kids. Each episode is about 10-15 minutes long.

This one is about a nerdy kid who wrote poetry and it’s hysterical, and the last poem is surprisingly awesome!

IFA #21: Mad Max Fury Road Co Writer Brendan McCarthy
Brendan McCarthy is a legend in the world of comics and now the world of Mad Max. His series Freakwave was inpired by Mad Max 2, The Road Warrior and was later copied by the film Waterworld (without giving credit to McCarthy). In this episode we talk with McCarthy about his relationship with Mad Max…

Podcast interview with co-writer and original Fury Road story-boarder Brendan McCarthy (no, not the guy who wrote the Furiosa comic). 

His description of the process – banging out ideas over thousands of drawings as they worked through the story in a shared studio – sounds like a wonderful fever dream, as does how he landed the co-writing job: by sending George Miller a tape of the Road Warrior episode from a show he designed, ReBoot. Yes, that ReBoot

And McCarthy wasn’t kidding about being part of the punk-wave British invasion comix, wow. Judge Dredd, Strange Days/Freakwave? Perfect, Platonic Ideals of the underground comix aesthetic of that era.

I’m kind of losing my mind because I didn’t put it together until now that it was all the same guy. What an unbelievable career.
