JOY TANEY, MULTI-TALENTED ARTIST
Joy has a background with every kind of art possible from performing in bands to murals and bodypainting to making comics. Joy always had a connection to art having been raised by parents who had a band and lived on tour. Her parentsâ€™ band, the Juggernaut String Band, were â€œtheâ€ school band for the weeks when students learned square dancing – her dad on the banjo and her mom with the fiddle.
â€œIt should be a well paying enough thing where itâ€™s not just a labor of love to go into the arts.â€ ~Joy Taney
We discussed the incredible synergy that happens when a talented artist couples with a person who is more business-minded like the Moores, Frazettas and H.R. Giger and his several wife/assistants.
As a color artist, Joy is grateful that they are finally being given credits on the cover of comics. We talked about impostor syndrome and ego.
- Anne Elizabethâ€™s Zombie Powers 3
- Worked on Sonic Boom comics by Archie Comics
- Joy will have some TV news, but we couldnâ€™t talk about it, so be sure to follow her feeds for announcements.
TIME MANAGEMENT AND HEALTH MAINTENANCE
Regarding time management, Joy stays old school and maintains her schedule with a day planner or paper calendar.
â€œI definitely prioritize. But, I also try to treat myself as a human where itâ€™s not the end of the world if I donâ€™t get to all eleven bullet points on my To Do list or something and have things that can be bumped over to the next day or something. Iâ€™ve seen a lot of people work themselves sick.â€ ~Joy
Joy was disabled for 12 years of her life and has found a regime that helps her have this life. Mural painting is so physically demanding that itâ€™s been another way for Joy to keep in shape and keep her pain under control.
â€œThe subject of my art is often not necessarily what you can see in the art, but whatâ€™s in the subjectâ€™s head.â€ ~Joy Taney

â€œThe best and the worst things that are gonna happen to you are gonna be whatâ€™s unexpected so just be ready to take those opportunities when youâ€™re in a good place and time to do it.â€ ~Joy Taney
