2020 in review - Ep#33

December 28, 2020

Hello there, well it's been a bit of a year huh? 2020 I think has been a bit of a trial for a lot of us, but we go through it. A huge thank you to all of the guests that we have had this year. Without them, we would have a very different show and it's been wonderful to have these lovely conversations get to create with them.

This is a retrospective episode looking back on our 16 episodes this year and finding the hidden joy with links to the guests involved.

Dan Berry - Ep#32

December 4, 2020

After listening to his podcast Make It Then Tell Everybody for the past year and consuming over 200 episodes we caught up with podcaster, maker, creator and jack of many trades Dan Berry.

We talk to Dan about his 8 years in podcasting, his brief dalliance with stand-up and how that helped him in teaching. How he knows that he has an idea that he wants to draw and how words can give you various feelings when you think about them way too much.

Andy Perry - Ep#31

November 20, 2020

As promised we set up and had a great chat with Andy Perry the writer of the Reanimator Incorporated Graphic Novel. Having already spoken to the artist Lyndon White.

We dive into his writing process a fair bit and how he wanted the whole process to be collaborative with Lyndon. He does mention just how valuable the editing process was and how it reformed the story. We talk a little about a writing retreat that he went on with Arvon and as a writer just how much that improved his ways to give and receive feedback.

We loved chatting with Andy and thank him for being patient with our technical difficulties, turns out it all worked out. You can grab a copy of the graphic novel via Backerkit. We are eagerly awaiting the release of Volume 2.

Art Nine Two - Ep#30

Art Nine Two - Ep#30

November 6, 2020

Fantastic independent artists and comic book creators Damian and Helena make up Art Nine Two and for us, it was a huge amount of fun to sit and chat with them.

Damian's recent comic GGA (Galaxy Grappling Alliance) is a huge homage to the early days of the WWE bit with the matches having a deeper meaning. He has an incredible passion for Wrestling and movies and he even runs his own podcast called Omen to That really makes the comic feel like it has motion and he goes into a bit of detail about that. His talents don't stop there, he does amazing portraits of all sorts of people including Dr Who.

Helena is also an amazing portrait artist but has also an amazing talent for pet portraits. Over the lockdown, she has put a lot of time and energy into the Patreon to supply some really good art tutorial videos. These are really affordable for people who want to see how she puts her work together and even shows you the mistakes.

We can't thank them enough for being such good sports and great guests. Go check out their work, maybe send them an e-mail if you want to commission either of them for a piece of work or go buy something from their shop.

Lyndon White - Ep#29

October 16, 2020

After receiving the fantastic first issue of the Reanimator Incorporated graphic novel we really wanted to reach out to the creators. This is a chat with artist and illustrator Lyndon White and we have a chat scheduled with Andy Perry coming soon.

Chatting with Lyndon was fascinating. He is certainly prolific with his work and if you take a look at his portfolio on his site it shows just a selected amount of what he has been up to. We chat about how he puts his work together, the work that he has put in with his previous concertina books, conventions, balance and being taught by Dan Berry.

It's an exciting time for Lyndon as on Oct 20th 2020 he launches the Kickstarter for his next concertina book Mary Shelley's Frankenstein so you can register your interest for that project right now.

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

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.

Mat Roff - Ep#24

August 7, 2020

We arrange a chat with creative problem solver Mat Roff. Sadly, we had a little issue with our audio on this episode but Mat's audio is great and after all, it is all about our guest and not us.

Mat helped us in a bit of a deep dive into why fan art can be so important in any artist journey. He told us how everything for him is classed as some sort of collaboration and how that keeps his work fun and interesting for him and his clients. His openness is something we applaud, it's not always about the final product, sometimes the journey is much more important.

We encourage you to check Mat out on Twitch, he regularly streams his work and his process which is lovely to be part of. We will certainly look at going to the Oxford Doodle Club and we hope to collaborate with him on something in the future.
