hello people, i am cory kerr and i like to talk about traditional and digital illustration, drawing and coloring. more specifically, i cover different aspects of how to live a creative life in a productive and balanced way in an art chat and the occasional art rant.

so whether your comic book art has traditional or digital inking, this is the channel for art talk and discussion around artist problems and art advice. most of the videos will have timelapse drawing, digital illustration or inking on good ol' paper with kuretake brush pens (and sometimes the pentel pocket brush)
