We’ve all been there – you’re on the verge of a brilliant idea, but the walls of deadline mediocrity are closing in. To smash your way through those walls with ideas the size of one-ton boulders, you’re going to need leverage, and lots of it. Get your leverage from Kody Chamberlain as he discusses the unconventional, yet practical, techniques he’s used to launch big ideas through the walls of graphic design, illustration, creative writing, comic books, graphic novels and deep into the Hollywood hills. His arsenal of oddball techniques include creative advice from Bob Ross, Jaws, Bruce Lee, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. You’ll even learn Kody’s top-secret networking technique, proven to generate deep personal and professional connections.
