Jason Cordova - Ep#64

August 26, 2022

Jason Cordova is a publisher, writer, podcaster and TTRPG creator and joined us for a chat from Texas via the power of the Internet. Jason spoke to us all about The Gauntlet, a community that celebrates tabletop roleplaying games and creating the very successful Kickstarter for Brindlewood Bay.

We covered topics such as his process, horror movies and being Goth adjacent to name a few. Then we created a James Bond character who is on the trail of an evil mushroom-worshipping cult.

Neil Hampton - Ep#63

Neil Hampton - Ep#63

August 12, 2022

For the first time in about 2 years we are able to have a face to face chat. Neil Hampton (aka 14Eight) is a Bristol based creative who is fairly new to the scene of being in markets. In his words Neil makes "gothic home decor and jacket junk" which if you are into that kind of scene you will know what those things are and probably will take a look.

We talk about the nerves of doing your first "artist" market, poorly designed t-shirts and all sorts of other stuff.

Andy Perry & Lyndon White - Ep#62

July 29, 2022

I was honoured to be asked by Andy & Lyndon to come back on the show I had to say yes. Since we have met them both before the chat is a little different but we try to focus on the changes that life can bring to both throw curveballs at your creativity or aid it. We also create miniature worlds created in science flasks!

Please go and check out the Kickstarter for part two of the Reanimator Incorporated books, it's way past its initial goal so everything now opens more stretch goals.

July 1, 2022

Geoff got in touch with us via Twitter asking us if we wanted to have a chat about a comic he was working on. We said yes, and so here it is instead of the episode we had previewed on our Patreon which we had some audio issues.

We had a really interesting chat with Geoff about his past work and more current work with EroTech. We dived into how design plays such a large element in creating comic books, how NSFW comic does not have to be ALL smut, then created a dark gothic submarine cop series.

Grimly Fiendish Crafts - Ep#60

Grimly Fiendish Crafts - Ep#60

May 27, 2022

We had a lovely chat with the very talented Grimly Fiendish Crafts who creates very cute and spooky things out of felt, fabric and that sort of thing. The really fun part about their work is that a lot of them have something unique because they are all hand-made.

We talked about not being good at "traditional art", being a kinesthetic learner, the things they have on in the background while they work, creating your own physical market and we had a rant about Etsy fees. Grimly also joined in our creative part and did a drawing with us.

Aru - Ep#59

April 29, 2022

We met Aru about 4 years ago at I think the same convention we met Sarah Millman because they were tabling with CB. It's just taken a while for us to organise a proper chat with them but we hope you agree that it was well worth the wait.

Aru chats with us about their comics and recent dip into making games and project management. We also have a chat about attention spans, to-do lists, autism and boy love.  Aru also joins us in the drawing and creates a marvellous image.

Rhianna Pratchett - Ep#58

March 25, 2022

Rhianna Pratchett is not a journalist despite what Wikipedia says although she certainly used to be. She has however written for many computer games including TombRaider, Overlord, Mirrors Edge and Heavenly sword to name a few. She has also written for DC, Marvel and Dark Horse and so much more. We are so thankful to be able to grab some of her time to chat through her history of creativity, her creative environment and the tricks she uses to persuade her own brain into working and so much more.

Nathan and Chris got inspired by the chat and figured out what the relationship would be between a tiny crow punk and a gentle alien plumber.

Gem Sheldrake - Ep#57

Gem Sheldrake - Ep#57

February 25, 2022

Gem Sheldrake, is an artist, comic creator, graphic designer for 2000AD and small press enthusiast. We accidentally hit on Gem's love for Arthur Morgan and traversed the usefulness of gaming to give your brain a break or to inspire you. We also talk about depression, how it's hard only having a small space to differentiate the difference between "work" and "home" and Gem's recent project with old Uni buddy and previous guest Phasechan.

During our creative section, we create a cyberpunk styled world with our main protagonist filtering through the muck with their extra arms in order to find some space change in the form of some luminous crab. Oh... and there is a monkey! We can't thank Gem enough for her time and involvement with the show.

Zoe Burgess Foreman - Ep#56

January 28, 2022

Our first episode of 2022 is with multi-talented creator Zoe Burgess Foreman. Zoe is a researcher, horror enthusiast, author, artist, podcaster and on top of all of that is a teaching assistant for a special needs school.

We talk to them about how they find time to go to the toilet, ADHD, what Cthulhu would be like if he was a hot boi, the struggles that exist around adult manga in acquiring it, publishing it and people judging you for it.

We go off on many a tangent and eventually get round to creating two rival training gyms between aliens and cowboys with some buff cacti drawings from us.

Chris Bissette - Ep#55

December 17, 2021

This is our final chat of the year and we end the year with multi-talented creator Chris Bissette.

In their own words, Chris is a TTRPG designer, writer, vocalist and musician.  In 2021 Chris decided that they would go "full-time" into their creative endeavours and things seem to be going okay so far. We spoke to them about the benefits of using a physical device to add tension to RPG's, their music and how there is a huge difference between enjoying writing and enjoying the act of having written something.

All of that was before we created a new made for TikTok show featuring influencer "Kid-nap" whose USP is voluntarily being kidnapped by Pirates in order to make awesome content. Confused? You should be.
