Jamie Iles - Ep#17

February 7, 2020

Welcome to Episode 17 where we talk to storyboard artist Jamie Iles. If the surname sounds a little familiar it's because we spoke to his wife almost 1 year ago Sophie Iles. It was so nice to finally sit down with Jamie and have a chat about his work. We feel that storyboard artists are a very under-appreciated breed of people, they can add so much to a project.

Jamie talks about his love of story and how him and Sophie are very different in how they try to tell stories and many other things. We really enjoyed chatting to Jamie and we hope that you enjoy listening to him. If your listening to this on the day it's released then images will be released later as we are very busy with "work".

2019 in review and plans for 2020 - Ep#16

2019 in review and plans for 2020 - Ep#16

January 3, 2020

Happy new year from both of us. We had recorded a whole episode with the amazing Katy Shutte but due to technical difficulties, we don't have any of that audio. We will say that if you have the chance to check out any of Katy's work then please do so. We would like to also thank the Bristol Improv Theatre for giving us space and time to record with Katy. We will fix the technical issues and have a back up for this year.

So this episode is just a bit of a look back on our first year of podcasting and a look into the future. We cover some listening stats, Chris sets a challenge to our listeners with a mystery prize, we talk about the fantastic book How To Think When You Draw by The Etherington Brothers (sorry for the mis-pronounciation of your name) and the fabulous art by Chris Barker. We fill you in on the ongoing work by our first podcast guest Sophie Iles who has had a busy year despite having some horrible things happen in her personal life.

We hope to talk to more amazing talents this throughout 2020. Thanks for listening and if you could one thing for us and just tell someone about this podcast we would greatly appreciate it.

Jamie Frew - Nov Bonus Episode

Jamie Frew - Nov Bonus Episode

November 21, 2019
Welcome to our first bonus episode where we talk to Jamie Frew who is the designer of a card game called The Old Hellfire Club.
 
We were supposed to have a full episode with Jamie and did chat to him for over an hour but due to an operator error we only actually recorded the second half of the chat. We didn't want our listeners to miss out on what we did manage to record so we decided to release it anyway. We give you a bit of an extended intro as to how we found out about The Old Hellfire Club at UK Games Expo back in 2018. It took us a while to manage to organise a chat with Jamie but we caught up with him in London attending Tabletop Gaming Live.
 
Apologies for the sound quality but we did record this inside Alexandra Palace.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part two of our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

If you have not already listened to Part 1 of this then we would advise you to go and do that. In this section we get Sarah rolling a whole bunch of dice in which she gets what is known in D&D as a critical fail! Nothing is a critical fail in our book, not even Chris's poorly drawn horselike creature. From this chaos comes a beautiful fantasy scene involving castles, princesses and a deep conspiracy. You can see all of the drawings via our social media links below.

Remember to check out NPC Tea, you can grab a copy from Sarah's Etsy page and catch her at ComiXology 205 during Thought Bubble 2019. Thanks again, Sarah. We look forward to seeing you at the convention.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 1

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part one our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

Sarah is a writer and artist that we found at Cardiff MCM. It was because her comic involved tea which Chris drinks a lot of and because our initial chat with her just felt so natural we really wanted to get her in for a chat and we are so glad she said yes. We had to split this into two parts because there was just so much that we covered. In this part, we dig a bit into Sarah's history and how she feels about people believing in her work. Sarah is also a DM for a D&D group that she runs over Skype and I can only imagine how much fun it is to be in one of her sessions. If ever she needs a guest character I am sure that Nathan and Chris will be only too happy to join in.

NPC Tea is available via Sarah's Etsy page and you can catch Sarah at Thought Bubble 2019 @ ComiXology 205. Stay tuned for part 2 of this interview and hear what is rolled and what we draw.

Ros Beeson - Ep#13

Ros Beeson - Ep#13

October 4, 2019

It's our thirteenth episode and in October... oooh, spooky. We are honoured to have the wonderful improviser and sketch comedy performer/writer Ros Beeson join us. As much as this might sound like clickbait you would not believe what ends up being rolled by the dice when we get to it. Seriously we did NOT plan this.

Ros is a great performer and we had no idea before we spoke to her that she had recently taken back up drawing. We dig into Ros' past a little and she explains how she got together with fellow university people to form the sketch based comedy group Up The Antics and now that she fronts the Bish Bash Bosh that you can see at the Bristol Improv Theatre.

Ros spills the beans on how prop cigarettes work and teases us with talk about the upcoming show she is working on called Level Up in co-ordination with the Unscripted Players. You can catch this on the 15th & 16th November 2019 at the Bristol Improv Theatre, see their website for more details.

Gwdihoo - Ep#12

September 6, 2019

This month we get spooky a little early with the talents of Gwdihoo (aka Goody Who). She is an awesome creative who has just become an art fair dad with the SUMMER SCREAM event. There is space in the world for spooky art fairs and so she set up the Ghoul Gang Collective along with her buddy Fruit & Bone. We get Goody to tell us what goes into having a tattoo apprenticeship and her influences. We go off on some pretty big tangents that take us through Christopher Robin as a horror movie, the works of Jan SvankmajerGrace Neutral, Ryu Murakami and his book In The Miso Soup and one particular bit of work by the amazing Junji Ito.

Welcome to episode 11 where we feature a chat with fantastic artist Rory Walker. Rory is a fun and creative person and is currently back doing freelance work so if you know of anyone who can use his talents then lease pass on his details to them. In the episode, we explore Rory's dalliance with Dungeons and Dragons and his blatant disregard for units of measurement. Don't forget to go and take a look at our drawings and give us some feedback.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 2

July 5, 2019

This is part two of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Here is where we roll the dice and make something up. See what we make out of the Dinosaur & Robot genres. We dig a bit into why Harry finds taking photos is incredibly helpful for him to use as reference material. Chris struggles trying to draw a tar pit and gives some dinosaurs some weird legs and Nathan shows us how robot aliens actually kidnapped all the T-rex's.

A huge thank you to Harry who was an awesome guest, we wish him well for all of his future projects and shall aim to keep an eye on what he produces.

We are going back to releasing one episode a month again so our next episode will be Friday August 2nd 2019.
