Call to Mastery: Mike Maihack

“Write characters, not Christians.” Mike Maihack

I really love the work done by @jordanraynor – I’ve illustrated him here a few times and his podcast is one I try not to miss. Having said that, I totally missed this episode so I’m totally glad when I stumbled upon it! 

One thing that’s I’ve been thinking about for the next year is creating stories and this episode of The Call to Mastery featuring @mikemaihack was a great point for starting this off. I really enjoy his art style and I need to get my hands on a couple of his books because it sounds like they’re great. Like all creatives – I commonly succumb to the idea that I’m not good enough or the even worse one; “I’m not ready yet.” This podcast literally changed my mind on this and for that I’m super thankful!

Thanks Jordan and Mike – I appreciate you both! 🙌

Note: It seemed to make sense to do this one in a more cartoony style than I usually do. Swipe for the process video. 👉👉

Illustrator and Sketchnoter. I prefer pizza over tacos. I like to draw things without fur much more than things with fur. When presented with two choices I pick the one that's less complicated.
