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!

May 21, 2021

In this episode we chat to comic maker, storyteller and Design Director at Papertank Chris Baldie. Back in November 2020 Chris released a Kickstarter to fund his comic "We Said Goodbye to Gravity" and it was more successful than he imagined.

We had a lovely chat with Chris about his Space Captain series, being his own sales person and his disapproval of the Adobe subscription model.

During our creative bit we build an intergalactic library run by a generation of beetles, during which Nathan says the word "poop" a lot.

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.

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

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.

T. W. Burgess - Ep#38

March 19, 2021

Here we are with our second producer of the occult and spooky material. Here is a chat with T. W. Burgess, a writer and purveyor of horror, especially ghost stories. We had a bit of audio difficulty with this and we hope it does not ruin your listening enjoyment.

We went on a HUGE horror movie tangent and picked up on how important it is to dig into those old folk tales for more material. We dug into the success of the Early Haunts Kickstarter and what is coming up.

That's all before we take a break and then come back and create something supernatural together.

March 5, 2021

We have another double episode for you for March and feature two producers of creepy, occult and that type of content. Starting off with James Bojaciuk the Chief Executive Officer Duobus of 18th Wall Productions.

We talked to James about how the publishing house came about after he received a rather harsh piece of criticism on a piece of his writing. He also speaks about finding the right audience, the controversy around e-books, his love of the Hammer House of Horror series of films, what Kickstarter has bought into the world and how Peter Cushing was really into his tabletop gaming and a massive nerd.

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.
