Lloydie James Lloyd - Ep#36

February 19, 2021

For our second episode for February we had a remote chat with Improvisor, Radio producer and Podcaster Lloydie James Lloyd. Chris has been delving into what Lloydie has been up to with his Improv Chronicle Podcast, not something everyone might enjoy but if you are interested in Improv then we would certainly recommend it for a very consumable deep dive into some very interesting topics.

Lloydie was slightly reserved about the drawing section of our show but I do feel that he enjoyed creating a planet that was being run by two mobsters who have a certain penchant for musicals. We persuaded him to draw with us and love his depiction of "Lil Larry", check out the drawings via our social media.

Aaron Rackley - Ep#35

February 5, 2021

For February we bring you the first of two scheduled episodes. We managed to grab some time with the owner of Buy Small Press an Indie marketplace, Aaron Rackley.

We can't thank Aaron enough for his time. He spoke to us about his day job as a Scrum Master and being a sometime developer. The publishing house that he setup to try and provide books for all ages, the charity he runs, the typography he did for Art Nine Two on GGA and more about how Buy Small Press came about. Aaron spoke openly about mental health without us asking him and we really appreciate his openness about that. We dig a bit more into his plans for the Indie Marketplace and then get him creating with us.

If you are an independent creative and want to sell your stuff and are fed up with the fees charged by a site like Etsy then I would encourage you to take a look at Buy Small Press.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
