VIDEO: Creatives in a Cafe Getting Coffee with Justin Castaneda

Every once in a while, I go on a POWER LUNCH with Justin Castaneda. Who is this person? Ohhh he’s none other than an illustrator genius, comic artist, author, and most importantly, amazing, life-long friend. And what’s a power lunch? Well, both being independent creatives, Justin and I know it’s important to step outside of the ever-so-cozy and sometimes-isolating box that is the home office. Our favorite place to catch up and share our creative process is Creative Cakes in Tinley Park. In the video above, Justin and I share our creative processes and laughs.

You also get to see a terrible, terrible sketch for one of my t-shirt designs for Snort Monster. (I hope my drawing teachers aren’t watching…!) Enjoy, and be sure to subscribe to Justin’s YouTube channel to get more of his creative process, hyperlapse sketches of his famous #cardBOREDsketches, and keep up with his comic con adventures.
