Morrighan Corbel - Ep#45

July 2, 2021

Let us introduce the incredible artwork of Morrighan Corbel. We found her through Twitter somehow and we are incredibly glad we did. We think her artwork really portrays that feeling of aloneness, isolation and somewhat frustration. She also does pretty incredible pet portraits..

We loved chatting with Morrighan. It was really interesting for us to find out that as she has ADHD she tends to bill in terms of day rather than hours. We cannot thank her enough for the time she gave us and for the honesty she bought to the conversation.

If you are into folk stories, dark and beautiful art and/or enjoying RPG's then put Morrighan on your one to follow list.

PhaseChan - Ep#43

June 4, 2021

PhaseChan is another of those artists we found at True Believers (2020) and when we saw the Kraken T-Shirt she had (but sadly sold out of our size) we knew we had to talk to her at some point and here is that chat.

We dig into PhaseChan's work a fair amount, how birds are basically dinosaurs, Twitch, conventions and once again sing the song of praise around the world of fan art. We also chat about her delayed upcoming appearance at Upfest this year!

Shazleen Khan - Ep#41

May 7, 2021

We kick off May with another fantastic artist, illustrator and award winning comic maker Shazleen Khan.

We took a bit of a whirlwind tour through their history in the comic industry and how they get actual pleasure from the physical act of drawing. Shazleen has been working on their web comic BUUZA!! since 2019 and is enjoying using actual time as an element and making the reader commit in the long haul.

For our creative section we come up with a rhythm based game loosely connected to Pa Rapper the Rapper where the stars of the game are guiding a giant cosmic friendly bee to a safer place.

Gustaffo Vargas - Ep#40

April 16, 2021

We met Gustaffo Vargas in 2019 at Thought Bubble and he is is an amazing comic book creator who has been incredibly busy in 2020.

Not only did Gustaffo work on the really interesting Quarantine Comic by Jordan Thomas, he also worked on Skrawl: Comix Magazine and drew, funded, released his own work Puno. We chat to Gustaffo about his really busy year, his work, his incredible use of colour, inspirations and so much more.

Gustaffo started our story telling section wonderfully and you have to have a listen to see what we come up with.

Cooper Shaw - Ep#39

Cooper Shaw - Ep#39

April 2, 2021

We got to chat with another creative across the pond in the form of Cooper Shaw. Cooper is an actor, director and teacher at the well known Second City training school. Chris got to know her a bit while he was taking the Dialects and Character Voices course that was run by Cooper over Zoom

It was lovely to dip into Cooper' history and work and how encouraging she is when learning to use your voice as an instrument. She has an infectious teaching method which is fun and encouraging so if you are interested in learning more about accents and dialects we would recommend you take a look at the course.

Wait until you hear the story we create too.

Jen Rowe - Ep#34

January 8, 2021

Happy new year listeners. We start this year with an Improv bang and managed to organise a chat with performer extraordinaire Jen Rowe.

Jen is multi-talented and when she is not teaching, performing or writing then she is probably out on a walk, painting or practising hip-hop dancing. We chat about how the lock down was and the new challenges that face UK performers now that the UK is no longer in the EU.

Be sure to check out Jen's awesome drawing on our social media.

Jenny Gyllblad - Ep#28

October 2, 2020

After a bit of rescheduling, we managed to have a chat with Jennie Gyllblad to talk to her about the comics that she makes, smut, art and all sorts of other things.

We cover a lot of ground with Jennie from her most recent work Rough Hex to fetish culture and the state of comic book publishing in Sweden and why her living in the UK is not "A phase". We loved how when Jennie realised she didn't have to censor herself she jumped in with both feet. This does include the amazing idea she came up with for the drawing section of the show and supported it with an incredible drawing. Be sure to check out our social media for those images.

Harriet Braine - Ep#27

September 18, 2020

We are super happy to bring you a chat with Harriet Braine. Harriet is the second presenter of The Design Spark Podcast that we have been lucky enough to get onto the show.

We talk to Harriet about her experience of recording the podcast with Lucy Rogers and Bec Hill. Her experiences living and working in Edinburgh during the festival, as well as the highs and lows that winning awards early in your career can bring. We also learn that Harriet is not just a super talented musician and comedian but a dab hand at a bit of craftwork (no, not the German band) by creating something called a Bum Hole Sun.

Joe Latham - Ep#26

September 4, 2020

At time of writing, Joe and his wife are just about to have a baby so we managed to get a chat with him before that happened. It's also a bit of luck because we were only talking about Joe in the last episode.

We met Joe at Thought Bubble 2019 and Chris loved his watercolour style comic The Fox, The Wolf and The Woodsman but we didn't get much of a chance to chat to him. So it was interesting to dig into Joe's history and learn how he grew into web design. Making MySpace (remember that?) pages for some UK based celebrities to name a few things that he has turned his hand to. He still takes on design projects both for web and physical if he has the time, space and clients but would much rather spend a lot more time working on comics.

Well, we support you Joe, and so should you. If you want to give your eyes a bit of a treat and your brain a bit of a rest then consider investing in his latest work Haru which you can get Part 1 & 2 on Kickstarter right now.

Graham Johnson - Ep#25

August 21, 2020

Welcome back for a rather chilled episode with the wonderful Graham Johnson. Graham is a producer, improviser and illustrator to name a few things. We chat to Graham about his early influences like the webcomics Questionable Content and Dresden Codac. It's really interesting to hear Graham talk about how these "Slice of Life" style comics appealed to him more than the more superhero/fantasy style.

We dive into being able to work with the fantastic Kid Carpet and his current projects which include drawing an entire tarot deck of Cute Squishy Boys, being the live illustrator for Tales of Adventure an Improv live play RPG that happens over on Twitch and is uploaded to YouTube. All that and some  tangentst skip through Musical Theatre, the works of Nicholas Cage and a Lloyds Bank commercial?

Check out his work, and if you have some future production needs or are interested in helping Graham publish his Tarot cards or just want to buy a print of one or a whole pack do get in touch with him.
