HermitBurpcast#10 Social Media (Introvert Burp Edition)

Welcome! I am Leonie Yue and this is the monthly HermitBurpcast

In the Youtube Version below, there's an art timelapse of these BurpDoodles :D
And I decided to not monetise my HermitBurpcast videos anymore (within 5 days of trying it). Realistically, it's not worth anything & it's free on iTunes anyway
I'll leave my Gaming & Entertainment focused videos monetised as a side experiment.

Do you feel like you're terrible at doing this social media stuff?

Hello! Me too!

In this episode, I talk about social media for me as a Hermit and its pros & cons from numbers, friends to online personas. Then join me as I ramble about how terrible I am at it and what I do on my Blog, Facebook & Pages, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram & Pinterest. 

I talk about LinkedIn at my Shownotes instead because I forgot about it haha!

Your input is welcome & I can answer to them during next month's episode! (:

2015#13 Waddling at Adelaide & My Experience with John Nevarez's "Storyboard Illustration For Movies" Masterclass

Leonie's small blog island says hullo! (:

Warning: Super duper long post!! 

The Hermit actually travels solo for almost a week! 
I really doubt it but just don't let my father know too much about it haha

What I'm going to do:

  • tell the whole journey as a chronological story 
  • provide my thoughts on John Nevarez's fabulous course at the end (skip to the end if that's what you're looking for but you'd miss the shenanigans along the way if you're rushing to the end like that haha)
It will be a mix of daily journal entries and masterclass thoughts as noted in the contents below! :0

Lastly I feel like I must state the *obvious* first up: there won't be actual course content here because it does not belong to me and will be unfair for everyone involved such as John himself and all the students. 

But if you *really* want to learn from John himself, please do seek him and/or his representative to explore whether he could teach his course at your institution. He's pretty busy already as I understand it but he is also open to doing story and film art as a freelancer. (:

Here are his links and wonderful, muscly, expressive artwork:

Okay that's the introduction/disclaimer out of the way; doodles, rambles & photos incoming! :D

    Let's go crazy! Journal Time.

    You will definitely need this!
