CB - Ep#18

March 6, 2020

We took a trip in early Feb to Cheltenham to check out True Believers Comic Festival. There we caught up with a multi-talented creative CB. We first bumped into CB at Cardiff comic con and we were compelled to have them on the Podcast as soon as we could. It took a while to set up but we got there in the end.

CB has produced two awesome comics; ThirteeN, the adult erotic demon zine about a former witch who is thrown into a life of servitude in the fiery pits of the underworld and Avery Chase a Sci-fi action-adventure extravaganza. CB also draws awesome illustrations some of which are more sensual than others. We hope that you take some time to check out their work and spread the word.

Jamie Iles - Ep#17

Jamie Iles - Ep#17

February 7, 2020

Welcome to Episode 17 where we talk to storyboard artist Jamie Iles. If the surname sounds a little familiar it's because we spoke to his wife almost 1 year ago Sophie Iles. It was so nice to finally sit down with Jamie and have a chat about his work. We feel that storyboard artists are a very under-appreciated breed of people, they can add so much to a project.

Jamie talks about his love of story and how him and Sophie are very different in how they try to tell stories and many other things. We really enjoyed chatting to Jamie and we hope that you enjoy listening to him. If your listening to this on the day it's released then images will be released later as we are very busy with "work".

Dan is a multi-talented creative who has worked with digital 2D, 3D as well as illustration and even programming. He's a really nice person and terribly busy with a project that he could not talk about due to an NDA. We talk about his university experience, the tools he uses, his Fleshy Friends project and a brief touch on D&D before we all get drawing.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part two of our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

If you have not already listened to Part 1 of this then we would advise you to go and do that. In this section we get Sarah rolling a whole bunch of dice in which she gets what is known in D&D as a critical fail! Nothing is a critical fail in our book, not even Chris's poorly drawn horselike creature. From this chaos comes a beautiful fantasy scene involving castles, princesses and a deep conspiracy. You can see all of the drawings via our social media links below.

Remember to check out NPC Tea, you can grab a copy from Sarah's Etsy page and catch her at ComiXology 205 during Thought Bubble 2019. Thanks again, Sarah. We look forward to seeing you at the convention.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 1

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part one our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

Sarah is a writer and artist that we found at Cardiff MCM. It was because her comic involved tea which Chris drinks a lot of and because our initial chat with her just felt so natural we really wanted to get her in for a chat and we are so glad she said yes. We had to split this into two parts because there was just so much that we covered. In this part, we dig a bit into Sarah's history and how she feels about people believing in her work. Sarah is also a DM for a D&D group that she runs over Skype and I can only imagine how much fun it is to be in one of her sessions. If ever she needs a guest character I am sure that Nathan and Chris will be only too happy to join in.

NPC Tea is available via Sarah's Etsy page and you can catch Sarah at Thought Bubble 2019 @ ComiXology 205. Stay tuned for part 2 of this interview and hear what is rolled and what we draw.

Gwdihoo - Ep#12

September 6, 2019

This month we get spooky a little early with the talents of Gwdihoo (aka Goody Who). She is an awesome creative who has just become an art fair dad with the SUMMER SCREAM event. There is space in the world for spooky art fairs and so she set up the Ghoul Gang Collective along with her buddy Fruit & Bone. We get Goody to tell us what goes into having a tattoo apprenticeship and her influences. We go off on some pretty big tangents that take us through Christopher Robin as a horror movie, the works of Jan SvankmajerGrace Neutral, Ryu Murakami and his book In The Miso Soup and one particular bit of work by the amazing Junji Ito.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 2

July 5, 2019

This is part two of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Here is where we roll the dice and make something up. See what we make out of the Dinosaur & Robot genres. We dig a bit into why Harry finds taking photos is incredibly helpful for him to use as reference material. Chris struggles trying to draw a tar pit and gives some dinosaurs some weird legs and Nathan shows us how robot aliens actually kidnapped all the T-rex's.

A huge thank you to Harry who was an awesome guest, we wish him well for all of his future projects and shall aim to keep an eye on what he produces.

We are going back to releasing one episode a month again so our next episode will be Friday August 2nd 2019.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 1

July 5, 2019

This is part one of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Harry is a painter who enjoys making beautifully intricate pieces of art and has recently finished his third year at the University of West England (UWE). These pieces usually take quite a bit of time to finish and we chat about the process of creating such a piece and how recently the university lecturers have been trying to encourage him to be faster. You can't rush genius I say!. Part two is where we roll the dice and chat more.

Thunderchair - Ep#9

Thunderchair - Ep#9

June 21, 2019

We have the pleasure of chatting with Howard, Joe and Ferg who collectively call themselves Thunderchair for Episode 9. We begin by chatting about their new comic book launch event for Hyper Galactic Rockstar Champion: Royal Rumble. They have an interesting history of really long title names for their comic books. We talk about how they all met, what their influences are and there is a lot of silliness that happens. All of that is before we roll the cubes and somehow create a 70's style cop play starring a monster who is experiencing some sort of time shift.
