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

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.

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.

December 3, 2021

Kat's illustration work includes a range of cards, invites and even bespoke illustrations too. Let's not forget that the Dinos and Dice Rolls Comic Kickstarter surpassed 300% of its funding which has to be declared a success. There is so much more to her work drawing cute dinosaurs going on adventures though.

It was lovely to chat with Kat and then catch her in real life when we met her at Thought Bubble. We hope that she had an excellent convention, we really enjoyed creating a space theatre with her and we can highly recommend checking out her work.

November 19, 2021

We had the pleasure and of a chat with Jordan Thomas who is a comic book writer that has recently released The Complete Frank At Home on the Farm book.

We chat to Jordan about the awesome Quarantine comic that he did at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, working with Clark Bint, how a film background helps him visualise a page and lots of other stuff. For our creative section, Chris shares his dislike of Leonardo Di Caprio and draws a weird eyeball testicle cowboy.

Don't forget if to back check out Jordan's work, and back Weird Work - Issue 2 if you can.

November 5, 2021

We bring you a chat with metal worker extraordinaire Michael Cthulhu.

We chatted with Mike about how his love of metal working began, his reasons for not buying a lathe, nudity, what his work means to people and what he would like to happen to him should his family find him in some horrible life ending accident. We did totally forget to discuss his podcast.

During our creative section we create a story where monsters turn into children at night and are hunted by one of those old school witch hunter type people.

October 15, 2021

When Victoria tweeted that she would love to guest on other peoples podcast we're not sure she took into account that we would pounce on that but here we are.

It's truly a delicious chat, poking about in Victoria's writing, love of video games, twitch presentation and her relationship with cross-stitch. It's another unapologetic tangent heavy episode where Chris and Nathan learn about the benefits of the phrase "fresh baby", discuss the Sims franchise and how writers love to make people feel things.

Charlot Kristensen - Ep#50

October 1, 2021

It's October and we are aiming to get back to two episodes a month until the end of the year. We celebrate our 50th episode in style as we chat with an incredible comic creator and illustrator Charlot Kristensen.

Charlot's comic What We Don't Talk About is a powerful story about Farai who has been in a relationship for two years and has never met her partner’s parents. Until this weekend the comic takes place. We chat about her story, its origin, her process and other bits.

That's all before we roll some dice and create a brand new children's show we're calling the "Flower Rangers"
