Episode 6 - Art Careers (Part 1)

August 15th, 2018

00:0000:00

We're diving into the world of artistic careers this month, a topic so big we had to split it in half (and still only scratch the surface!) 

Claire, an illustrator and comic-creator, and Jess, a London-based animator,  talk about the perks and not-so-perks of working in a studio vs. working from home, as well as sharing tales of their journeys from starry-eyed graduates to twenty-somethings in the early days of their respective artistic careers. And we may or may not be very slightly drunk. Butts!

August 1st, 2018

00:0000:00

Another of the Wine & Zine cast joins the fray! Meet Zara, who, alongside Bry, plumbs the depths of personality types and their relevance in the creative industry.

We talk about what makes you an extrovert or an introvert, how being one or the other can be beneficial or make obstacles when it comes to being an artist or comic maker, and explore some handy tips to setting yourself up for success!

Episode 4 - Sake and Manga (WAZ in Japan!)

July 16th, 2018

00:0000:00

 

Who makes more money - western comic artists or japanese mangaka?
Are maid cafes as unsettling as you think they are?
And, more importantly, can turtles experience romance?

Bry and Claire ask all these questions (and actually answer some of them!) and more as they discuss their adventure in Japan! We look at manga, anime and nerd culture compared to our experiences in the west, reflect on gender marketing in comics and manga, and make some startling discoveries in an erotic doujinshi (self-published comics) shop.

Episode 3 - Let’s Get Animated

July 1st, 2018

00:0000:00

We're light on the zines but heavy on the wine this week as Bry is joined by another of the WAZ ladies, Gemma Roberts!

Did you know over half of Wine & Zine make their livings as animators? Bry and Gem talk to Lauren Orme, organiser of Cardiff Animation Nights and Cardiff Animation Festival, about establishing a community in what can often be a lonely job. There's also plenty of glorious discussion about indie animated shorts and more recommendations than you could shake your non-photo blue pencil at!

Episode 1 - What is Wine and Zine?

June 1st, 2018

00:0000:00

Oh, hi there! Meet Claire Spiller and Bryony Evans, your resident hosts of the Wine and Zine podcast (and two-fifths of the collective). 

In our very first episode we'll run you through what the collective is about, who we all are, and what you can expect from us in the future. Every month we'll be discussing something to do with the world of comics, zines, movies, TV and games, particularly in the realm of their creation and art processes. Throw in a hefty sprinkle of banter and nonsense, and you've got Wine and Zine all over. So hit subscribe and join in the conversation!

New episodes drop the 1st of every month, with minisodes whenever we feel like it.
