This episode: Sarah Horrocks!

Sarah Horrocks returns! We last spoke to cartoonist and critic Sarah Horrocks in our “Best of 2016” episode, and she’s back for a full length interview. She’s got a new ongoing serial called GORO that she’s releasing in print and digital formats, and we dive deep into that. Sarah goes in depth on her goals there, as well as digging into her writing and drawing process, philosophy of pacing both within a story and a page, mark making vs legibility, and staying true to the emotional content of the work over traditional styles of representation. We cover some of her big influences, like Bill Sienkeiwicz, Guido Crepax and Alberto Breccia. Sarah is also a respected critic of comics and cinema, and we talk about how that informs her work as a cartoonist.

But First: Zack returns from Short Run with a convention report, and the Party Boys have some news about important changes to the Patreon that mean more content more often.



PS: DON’T FORGET! We’ve finally launched our super cool Process Party Patreon! If you enjoy the pod and want to help support us in what we do, now is your chance to kick in. There’s a few reward tiers available, including the low low $1/month, but if you subscribe at the $3/month level, you will get access to an exclusive Patreon-only weekly podcast feed! That’s a whole extra podcast for less than 1$/episode of the main feed!

If the main Process Party podcast is like being in the mix chatting with cartoonists at a convention party, Process Party: Real Talk is the afterparty, when the walls come down and the real talk, advice and gossip flow freely!  Every week we ask our guests to impart a little *extra* bit of wisdom, some nuts & bolts how-to info or philosophy, and of course a heavy dose of every cartoonist’s number one concern: GETTING PAID IN COMICS! These minisodes contain exclusive content not included in the regular podcast!

Our guests come from a variety of backgrounds and places in their careers, and they all have advice for you. From how to mentally balance comics and day-jobs, to nuts and bolts advice about turning comics panels into cold hard cash. Hear exclusive tidbits about the industry, insider stuff that’s 🔥 too hot🔥 to include in the public podcast, and more.

If you really love the pod, you can sign up for the $5/month level and get everything in the lower tiers, but we’ll also do one extra-special Sewing Circle minisode a month where Mike & Zack will review the stuff they are reading or watching at the moment! What did they think of that one movie about the people or placs? What cool old/new comics are they digging on this month? This is a mainline fix of our patented jibba-jabba.

Episode 18 of Real Talk is with Chris Sebela! Get in on the ground floor of the Process Party Patreon and make sure you don’t miss an episode of Real Talk! Real Talk updates every Thursday only for Patreon subscribers.

Also: Episode 04 of Process Party Sewing Circle is up! Sewing Circle is our monthly jibba jabba podcast for 5$/month subscribers! The focus may shift slightly here and there, but the idea is basically that we’re gonna get together and talk about the books, movies or comics that we’ve both been reading. Some things we have both seen, and some things we’re recommending to each other (and you!).
EPISODE 04: Blade Runner 2049 / Good Time – Kazuo Ishiguro / Mindhunter / Boogie Nights Marky Mark & PT Anderson
Sewing Circle updates every month only for Patreon subscribers.
