Processpod 006: It's my 52nd this comming week!
I didn't have something singular and specific to talk about, ramble a bit about the week's headlines, and my upcoming birthday. And things I want to remember to get done! Sort of but not exactly an accountability check in. I'll probably take next week off because of said birthday, if you want to wish me a happy one leave an audio message of that here on Anchor! :D Full show notes can be found over on my Substack, look for the same show title/#,
Processpod 2.0 : Ep5 I Chat about sick cats, copyright & AI + Work strategies while neurodivergent!
Processpod 2.0 : AI Art Pt2! My findings after a week and a bit of trying it out!
I had some time to try three of the current AI art generating platforms. Confirmed some initial impressions, and formed some thoughts of both utilities and threats it presents to art professionals. And ways I'm very likely to employ it in making my personal work as well I think. Don't plan to make AI art a theme for every episode but seemed like a good thing to talk about here given it's what I'm doin'!
Full show notes and more will be here on Substack with the episode post there!
Leave me a message here on Anchor!

Thanks for listening!
Processpod 2.0: How do you feel about AI art?
There's a lot of worry about AI art, but I think it's got a lot of potential too. Let's talk about that...
I talk about how my career evolved for the first 14 min before I segue into how I think about dealing with new tools and possible changes to come to the arts due to AI, and how I might even be able to use it in my own work to tell more stories in less time. I mention Adam David's AI art experiments Re Alan Moore beside himself, you can find those here. And I talk about MidJourney mainly, here's their community gallery showcase, and here's the discord server for the project. I'll follow up on Substack shortly with a blog update showing some of my own work over the years mentioned here.
Also mentioned Ivan's heart attack briefly, and the GoFundMe to help pay his bills, that's here.
Processpod 2.0 : ASMR beard scratching : AMA on gaming mechanics as story devices & what pens I don't use as much as I used to do?
Hi again, it's time for another Processpod installment, I talked about Intuiti cards, and Story dice, so links there! Not a sponsor I just like them.
I left books in a few tinny little libraries in Montreal, and started mapping them in my area. You can see pics of two of the boxes on my Instagram here.
Leave me audio AMA questions on Anchor here, either about art and comics stuff, creativity, animation work, all that obvious stuff? But also you could just do something silly? And I'll use those to make new call in cutups like my old voice mail mini shows? Scrub to 14m 40s to hear what I mean ;)
The Processpod Trailer
A quick intro to my podcast and me!
Salgood Sam's Processpod is a semi regular work blog and brain dump of Comics creator and professional artist Max Douglas.
I'm an old dog in a human suit, who makes comics and art for a living. I've been passing as a human artist for about 30 years and no one has been the wiser. Recently after teaching art part time for bones for several years, I switched back to working in animation to keep up the kennel payments, designing props and supervising at Sphere Animation in Montreal [formally Oasis Studios].
I'm still pawing out comics, my most recent is ‘Dracula: Son of the Dragon’, with Mark Sable published by Dark Horse. I think I'm possibly most well known for ‘Therefore, Repent!’ With Jim Munroe; I'm most proud of my self published ‘Dream Life: a late coming of age, book one’ and ‘Revolver’ One and Zero. I've done a lot more, it's all listed here.
I've worked in many other fields, if that kind of info is interesting I've listed most of it on my LinkedIn.
Processpod 2.0 : Comic Book Christmas; ADHD/ASD ; what's going on and what i'm doing with Substack
I've been working in animation as a designer for about two years now, and haven't had a lot of energy left over for personal things, so want to get back into doing these as a way to help prime the pump for my comics work. These will be stream of consciousness rambles with NO editing, under an hour as a rule.
In this one I talk about my books, Dracula son of the Dragon, Sequential, participating in Comic Book Christmas, my recent recognition that I'm definitely on the spectrum, and other things and stuff!
I've left the message feature on here on anchor and would love to hear from you here or in the comments on Substack!
